    you'd be better removing the pre cats and leaving the main cat...the pre cats are more restrictive than the main cat... (i removed mine and noticed a diff straight away) how do i go about removing the pre cats?? would that mean replacing the standard manifold?!

    Diy Alloy Refurb

    I did my wheels myself, they were in a ***** state with bare metal being exposed, i used nitromorse to strip all the paint off and take it down to bare metal, simply used a wire wheel on a drill to help with taking it off, once down to bear metal, rubbed them down and then used an etch primer before using a normal primer, the etch primer sticks to the alloy and allows the primer to stick to that. It took me a while to build the layers of primer up, with rubbing them down each time. i painted mine with a spray gun not a rattle can and was really pleased with the finish, considering my standard wheels are now my winter wheels grown quite attached to them!!!
  11. If i can get the car fixed by then i'll be up for it, how miles is the run?

    Longlife Exhaust

    what grade stainless steel comes on a lexus as standard then? because i bet it isnt t304 and no my lex has been maintained with a full lexus service history, which i am continuing!!!! tip: to tell the difference between stainless steel and stainless steel t304 grade: t304 is not magnetic where as less grades are! ok so i cant garantee its given more performance however it is more responsive and sounds nice which hey does it for me. the fact that i will never have to pay to replace that cat back system becuause it is garuanteed for life and future owners wont have to pay to have it replaced, truely is lifetime warantee. at the end of the day i didnt want this to turn to an argument or a slaggin match of my knowledge! at the end of the day i was putting a post to say what i had done was good and i was happy with but if thats not your cup of tea then fine....

    Longlife Exhaust

    i thought if any of you lot were located in my area then as a fellow member would look after you on an exhaust system, sorry if tht isnt acceptable by your standards the lexus comes with a mild steel system, therefore a stainless steel system that is garanteed for life, gives a performance increase and you can choose what sound you want may be of some use to you all!
