Was at Southern BM last week and had a look at "MUTED"

I like it better on the DPEs, but the ROHs do the job of keeping it off the floor

Hi Apples, which model number HJS cats did you go with? I'm thinking of refreshing my exhaust system, and may as well ditch the OEM cats whilst I'm at it.

There are a few to pick from.
I went with these..
Not sure on the flow rate on OEM cats, but these 200cel would be better but your looking at $500 each plus fitting cost as they have to be welded into the system.

I look forward to seeing how the wheels turn out in a few weeks
I know it's in good hands with the SoutherBM guys.

I haven't checked in on your ute in years, but I cruised by tonight for the first time in awhile, and I was stunned. It turned out great!

I picked up a project vehicle and I can't help thinking how much fun it would be to have..... say, a 5-6 lb strut?
