Already have the Sportex Danny...well what CCI used to sell as their "Club System" which has "Sportex" stamped on it :lol: I painted the underside sections from end manifold back a few yrs back, did the same with the manifold but the paint kept bleedin peeling so I sanded the manifold all back and its been fine ever since. Has a good "industrial" look to it. You seen it fella. Keeping it for now with ONLY the 2" tailpipe :lol: with the rear bomb silencer...…for now...

Was debating on whether to wrap the manifold with that heat tape but have heard mixed reviews and I think it looks better without the wrap. Yep at some stage I will get a stainless one but as mine is still decent condition will keep it for now. While the 3" deffo has a meatier sound especially straight through I like the tone from the 2" and dont want to drown out the weber 45s if thats possible :lol: :lol: :lol:

After my Sportex manifolds were fitted last summer it occured to me maybe I should have got them ceramic coated first.
Like you not sure it makes a great difference but not taking them off now just for that :)
