sometime in the next fortnight (hopefully) I'm going to need get a 2.5" exhaust system for my Z.
was just wondering whether anyone knew a good (pref. affordable too) exhaust shop? b/c i want the system to be really close on the underside of the car (seem some that were hanging down like dogs ......)
what price do you reckon i'll be looking at?

took it down this morning (hehe, 7am no muffler=fun :-) )
just picked it up about an hour ago...sounds great 2.5" straight through muffler and resonator.
anyway, to the point.
I got it done at Exhaust City, on cnr of Reserve and Park rd, Cheltenham(don't know number). and he did a great job.
only a couple more things to do and I'm on the road!

Im fairly happy with it, sits up there nice and close and out of the way. THe only thing i dont love is the sound, I now have a bit of one of those constant bassy hums. But it still sound really untamed and muscle carish so i like it on a whole i think.
anyway id recommend em.

I am now looking to take my exhaust down a couple of sizes and looking for a workshop around Hampton/Sandringham/Moorabin way (quality more important than being near to home).
I am looking at putting a 2" exhaust on to a 2.4L engine with headers, this would include both a muffler and resonator on the line. I would like it to be bent properly in a Mandrel press (I can get for $300 local press bent).
I have been told by Daniel that I should be able to find somewhere for around the 3-400 mark....and that he can do it right for the zed for a fair bit more (as it will take him all day and need to get parts in).
Does anyone have a workshop they know/trust?

Anyway, have called round a couple of places, most of them are out...
Spoke to Daalder exhausts in Box hill (bit of a trip but I am out there for other things later in the week). He suggested just putting a smaller muffler on (back pressure + Silence increased).
I erring on side of ripping the whole lot off, as the initial system was 2.5" and crush bent....was thinking of getting best can (for the least I can....not a good mix!). Only about a $100 buck difference.
Any additional shop suggestions?
Any thoughts on the muffler suggestion?

The only system I have that is mandrel bent is on the Z and that is beacause it is a 3" system and has one 90 degree bend for the side exit.
All the other cars have the more usual and cheaper press bends.
