I actually really like the design / style of the factory wheels. They just need to be wider with a little more offset (as with all OEM wheels).

Perrin 2.5” cat back issues

I’d only change it for sound mate. Not looking for power, also not keen on a tune or removing cats (legalities / insurance). Considering actually having the stock header modified (by lengthening two...

Perrin 2.5” cat back issues

Thanks mate. Appreciate the feedback. It’s not horrific. I’m going to see how it goes for another couple of weeks (it is better with the hangers) and then possibly try a different resonator. At this...

Perrin 2.5” cat back issues

Ok, so fitted 5 of the exhaust hangers a day or so ago and have driven it quite extensively since. They made a slight difference, but it was minimal unfortunately. Its an improvement, but I didn’t...

Has anyone possibly done this? Keen to know if it nets the same result (sound) as an aftermarket Catted header.

Was just a question really. Retains the factory cat, so no change with emissions / CELs etc. Just slightly lengthening two pipes.

Thanks mate. I had wondered that. Seems the muffler itself is quite loud and boomy. Not sure if they can be repacked. I’ll give the hangers a go first and see if that makes enough of a difference.

Thanks heaps mate. Seems to be mostly the deep note coming from the exhaust (even when standing behind) rather than vibration coming into the cabin per se, but definitely worth a shot [emoji1360]

Perrin 2.5” cat back issues

Hey all, after a bit of advice. I picked up a second hand Perrin cat back recently. The reason I searched for a Perrin is the thousands of reviews all over the internet stating it doesn’t drone.

Just travelled 3500km in our 86 with my daughter in the back and 2 months worth of stuff in the boot, including her bike. It was tight, but I’d say the 86 boot is pretty impressive.

If go 245/35 for sure mate. More meat looks better than slightly stretched IMO.
