Big thumbs up to local exhaust workshop
« on: July 11, 2018, 07:10:48 PM »
Fellow Sandgropers, for anyone wanting work done on their exhaust system, I want to give a huge plug to Peter at Exhaust World in Newcastle St West Perth. I went to him on the back of Ugame's comments about the work he did on his 916 GTV - great recommendation Chris!

He fabricated a new front half system for my '81 GTV (replaced everything between the manifold and the centre muffler) from much better quality steel to replace the thin, cracked and amateur-hour setup that was installed by a prior owner. Work included all new mounts front to back, as well as some reshaping of the rear end pipe, and raising the front end collector and pipework a couple of inches so that its now pretty much level with the sump (and no longer at risk from speed humps).

All done inside a day for less than $350.  Can't ask for better than that.

Now:    1999 156 V6
             1981 GTV
Before: 2001 156 V6 (sadly cremated)

I was very impressed with how neat and "factory fresh" his work looked.

Or pop round my way and we'll do a quick vid of the underside and exhaust note like I did for mine :D

I'm free tomorrow Arvo and weather is nice I think :D

PM me if interested.

I'd love to Chris, but unfortunately I have a pre-existing commitment tomorrow. Thanks for the offer though.

Also want to give the undersides a good degrease and clean before I show her off to the world.

As a stop gap, very short video so you can hear exhaust note. Excuse the embarrassing puff... hadn't really started her for a couple of weeks (shocking weather of late).

Don't know if its just me (on every device I use) but for some reason embedded videos don't show up on this forum. Been like it for months now.

Can you post the link as well?

Can't wait to hear it :)

I also am unable to view these videos posted on the forum. It is probably some white magic thing in my computer settings.

I believe itís to do with browser compatibility. Works with Safari and I think Chrome, doesnít work with IE, not sure about others like Firefox.

Had a related argument with techies at Brown and Watson (Narva, Projecta) - their webcat stopped viewing in IE without warning. They shrugged it off, apparently informing people about their products doesnít matter anymore...
