Yes Greg, I just fitted one to our 76 series Landcruiser V8 and it fitted perfectly but the 3 turbo flange nuts were a bugger to get off and on.
It sounds good but with no drone. I recommend them.

Did it make any difference in your power or fuel economy

I have yet to do a serious check but am about to leave on a 6 week, 8000kms trip so i should know after that.
It might be a bit hard to know as the V8 has so much grunt in standard trim anyway.

You said the 3 turbo bolts were a bugger to get on and is that because on the land cruiser or the fault of the new exhaust
Also is it a 3inch from the turbo dump ?
Also any reason why you chose this system over say the beau desert system just not sure which way to go

Greg. The turbo bolts needed the attention of the local exhaust fitter to heat them with oxy before they would release. Also the access is very tight and he used small socket set to do the job. The clearance between the pipe and the stud is so small that the nuts have to be started as the pipe is slipped on and tightened as you go.
Yes, it is 3" all the way but the turbo outlet pipe is less than 3" and the system matches it and then to 3" ASAP (about 100mm).
Cost was a major factor and as I am not fitting a chip I was happy with this level of performance. I am sure Beaudesert and Manta are bit better in improvement but I am more than happy with the result even towing a Kimberely.
Cheers, Ian

Greg, one more thing. I replaced the Toyota snorkel top with a safari type. The wind noise just went away and I think the air must be now
going where it should.....down the snorkel and that should benefit performance.
