Fitted my Race Pipe yesterday - first impressions are good!

My 80km round trip across the southern Flinders Ranges from Pirie to Gladstone showed a 0.6l/100km improvement in economy. Power must be slightly better as the strip of road that gets me to 100km/hr normally, got me to 108km/hr yesterday.

The pressure sensor brackets issue is easily solved.
On the rear bracket, screw the nut back on tight (to protect the thread - may want to refit DPF one day). Reposition the bracket up tight against the Race Pipe. Put a 3" Stainless hose clamp around Race Pipe and over the 'tab' of the bracket. Problem solved - no melted cable ties!

On the front bracket - just turn it 'upside down'. - it is out of the way then.

Re instructions - I didn't get any either, but if you have dealt with exhausts before a 1 hour soak with CRC / WD-40 on anything that needs to be loosened goes a long way to reducing grief. The gaskets weren't a perfect fit, but careful alignment prevented any exhaust leaks.

Cheers
Kim
