I fit these exhausts and can tell you they are a great product, weel presented,well made.

What sort of vehicle are you thinking of putting the system on as some make more difference than other as far as power goes.

Some of us have the Beaudesert 3" system. Also excellent! I visited the factory over Christmas and they have some amazing gear to make the systems.

Either or. Both are really good systems.

What are you thinking of fitting it to as there has been a lot of talk about both Taipan XP and Beaudesert systems on the Patrol Forum.

No need to have it done at all.

should find you will get an improvement by just putting the exhaust on only as the larger diameter will allow the turbo to spool up quicker.

I had it done because it was all part of the package and the place that did mine had a dyno so they were able to tune it up on the dyno to get optimum results. I was looking for more grunt and better fuel economy. Both of which i have achieved.

hey Fella's

I'm interested as well, only keep hearing good things on both systems.
My local bloke wasn't really interested in either of them, wanted to flog me something he reckons was allright .
Whats a fair price to pay for the systems? for a 100 series 1hz

Cheers
