Hello Again
Just thought I would do a quick up date on the Jackaroo. Since removing the restrictors in the exhaust, it has been going great. I have just fitted a 2.5 inch sports exhaust system. Souds great and runs even better. Just did a trip up to the high country and the jack was cruising up hills to mansfield in 5th on cruise control. I haven't worked out fuel yet, but it definately ran better.

Get outside and enjoy the fun
Cheers
Crazie

Hey D-Jack
seems posts just disapear lately haha, a while ago when we were all talking about removing the restrictors, Brad had other suggestions, So I finally got it done. I have a 3.5 V6. I spents about $450, but could have spent more if I wanted custom headers and twin pipe all the way, as you would need 2 cat converters and 2 oxygen sensors and computer re tune, too hard.... and over $1200.

Hi Crazie,

Just curious, was that $450 for a stainless steel or mild steel system?

HI Savvas

How have you been. Mild steel mate, with an coating. Would have liked stainless, but it was double. There were cheaper option as well.
cheers

Gday Mate
Standard cat back, but have a hi flow 2.5 inch cat coming. The mufler is a Super Cat,, but is about a third of the size of the standard one on the jack, the old one took up way too much room. There is more grrrr about the Jack, a bit louder. No resonance, a bit of a drone but not bad. Going to get the snorkel on now and have ordered a K&N filter.
cheers mate
ps. how are the MTR's

the tyres - big and heavy lol lol , sucked up a lot of the go go out of the old girl. Awesome on the dirt/mud/natural surface, gravel road is not as good as other tyres i have had, tends to slide around a lot, not much lateral grip (but can be quite fun). Very good on the road, only slight noise / vibration, but anything more than about 60% braking effort on wet bitchy and they hop and lock up real easy, so i'm going to get 4 of the bridgestone 694s on my spare rims for everyday use, when i can afford it. (gota get a new permanent job first). They should give back a bit more go. If i can find a fifth spare rim i might even go back to a 245/70 for on road only, then she will go like a rocket again. Decisions Decisions.......

All sounds good to me, mine just a little slower off the mark, but onces its up and running, very quick about 2500 revs. I have just ordered a K&N airfilter from the states, look forward to putiing that in. I couldn't go back to the smaller tryres, i love the extra height, even on the road
