Looking at historic posts regarding even super charger installations SRD seem to be top notch for quality and work with any modifications. If I was to charge my GSF I would probably utilise them. 

Saying that the garage I have MOTS at often has cars in being modified and may be worth a contact and further research : Rallysport automotive in Colchester.

Novel headers are a work of art, sound totally unique and awesome.  Do you mind disclosing who the supplier was and the price? The price I had from Japan for exhaust and headers with shipping and tax was over £10k!

 

Sound clips after the install would be much appreciated

Novel headers sound bloody stunning, one of the YouTube clips I watched help me mentally build it. 

Want the GTHAUS full exhaust and then novel headers slapped onto it for the extra Grrrr. 

 

Love the Lexus engine but the sound dampening Lacks that bit of asbo 😂

I'm waiting for the final quote from Japan which is due today im guessing around the 10k mark. There is an authorised supplier in the US that has quoted £9,266 including shipping so gonna push that onto Japan and see if they will better it once l get the quote.

 

I totally agree with the sound I've listened to the PPE, SIKKY and Novel on YouTube and they all sound good but Novel sounds amazing

Make sure you specify its a right hand drive car if you end up going with the US supplier, apparently there are differences in the headers of left hand drive cars Vs right hand drive

Refined Edition - Maldon may also be worth a shout. 

They've recently started doing all of there aftermarket modifications install, they do all there own works on there cars. 

Range rover SVR / Lambo / Ferrari 812 Super fast. 

 

I've met them a couple of times through work and there a lovely couple which started up initially due to poor after sales service in custom car market. 🤷

If u do Facebook look up Roman Schapp, he has a company chronos racing and along with a Japanese mate they set up the European link to Japanese parts.....he may be able to help with information, I used Westfield (Toyota and Lexus specialist) in Rawreth, Rayleigh, Essex when I had my manifolds changed, I’ve got GSF ones fitted, the bill was about £1200 inc vat BUT that included a new O2 sensor that had welded itself in with the heat 🙄
