Awesome stuff, all very nicely done and a nice and detailed log!
I've got H&R spacers too, wouldn't use anything else now tbh! Is that the vibe quick release wiring as well, is it handy/worthwhile, and solid?

Cheers, unfortunately the H&R spacers have just come off cause of the extra tyre over hang, ye it is the vibe quick realise, one half screwed to the seat, nice & easy, unhook & out comes the heavy bulky sub.

Oh yeah remember you saying at Leam100, trying for 5mm next!
What gauge does the quick release take?
Edit: Decided not to be lazy and googled it <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> Takes up to 8 gauge

cheers bud, ye you mite be right about MIJ but i never had a clue how much it would cost for a custom exhaust so was happy with that at the time, i wish they'd done the split better as i get a lot of air noise when it hits the split but it not sound that bad it could be better tho.
