I just wondering if the Abbott Exhaust system is a full 3 inch or 2.5 the whole way?

Thanks Blaque_Out. I’m going to stick with the JT instead then. I like the 3” exhaust system just wanted it stainless steel because it sounds a little louder.

Yeah I know that, but if the 3" was stainless then it would be even louder. That’s what I wanted 3" stainless. Anybody know ere I can get it for ng900?

I can't see a reason why there would be a sound difference between aluminized steel (JT) and stainless steel. The materials are about the same gauge and designed the same way.....

The reason why Abbotts downpipe is 2.5 is that it will work with the sub-fram brace they sell. Subsequently if you want a Sub Frame Brace, it will not work with a 3inch dp. But not to worry, its still possibly to tighten these cars up well without.

Not true, I have the Abbott SFB and use a 3" ss downpipe. All i needed was a 1/4" spacer/washer on the bolt to give the necessary clearance.

you can have a local exhaust shop fabricate a stainless system for a good price i bet. I had a local shop that specialized in exhaust fabrication do my brothers grand cherokee for about 325 + tax. It wasnt stainless but im sure it couldnt be that much more. probably would be a 100 more max, and remember thats installed. I am not sure if it was 2.5 or 3 also :? . hopefully 3, but they do a great job and you pick the mufflers so its as loud or as quiet as you want it to be, and very clean. Im sure it might be a little more restrictive than abbots or something but then again ur not spending twice as much and your not waiting months for it to come.....then get it installed, it takes 1 afternoon for it to get installed.

Wow. Had I joined the Link last week I would have been right in on this post.
The story goes last week I won on Ebay UK the Abbott SS 'No CAT' sport downpipe for the glorious price of £23.00 whats that in strange money $40?
Plus the guy lived in my neck of the woods over here I jumped into the 900 and picked it up. I think the guy was devestated it cost him a fortune nearly £300 and only 6 months ago. It was up on a 9 day auction but nobody seemed to spot it.
I nearly left him with extra cash I really felt liked i'd cheated him :roll:

I shall fit it after my next MOT (in a couple of weeks) with luck the car will pass I do have a feeling 3 tyres will be needed :shock:
So once the emisions are passed ect i'll bolt it on. Do you lot reckon it will give more ooompp or better midrange ect.
