Re: Replacement Aircooled exhaust.

I like the idea of Covkids solution but don't have time to tinker at the moment and need a quick fix as MOT is due. An affordable stainless one would help prevent future costs too.

Re: Replacement Aircooled exhaust.

Thanks Tony.

Definitely thought the Empi one would be too good to be true on many levels! I'll have a look around. Do you have your eye on any stainless set ups?
