A big OZ "good on you" :bigthumbsup: to the member(s) who posted the step by step details to modify the std 109 pipes. I like the look of them and wanted to keep the clean lines. After reading most of the posts I could find on the subject, I prepared the required tools and forged ahead with the mod. Very pleased with the outcome. The 9's sound match it's looks now.
Also, hat's off to the members who were able to do this work in half an hour. I was a mechanical fitter in a past life and didn't get much change from a little over two.
For anyone contemplating the same mod, here's one more satisfied owner. For reference (hope it works), I've attached video clips for before and after. :tools:

Hi PhoenixRZNG, Out West in Perth. Any decent tool mart should have them. If possible, try to get an extension longer than 12" otherwise you be just shy of the second baffle plate. Take your time with the top pipe and marking out/ pin punching the drill holes on the end plate as the slant on it can be a bit tricky (with the drill bit biting into the baffle tube)

Good luck with locating the tools.:doh:

Rayg,

Hi from another West Oz member. Bigeh is also over this way and I have been meaning to catch up with him for a while now. Unfortunately I have been busy overseas.

I was also thinking about modifying my standard exhausts, bought the hole saw and magnetic pick up but have been unable to locate an extension. Did you buy one (if so where from) or did you already have one? All I have been able to find is a socket extension, which would mean having a small socket on the end to take the hole saw. The problem was this left the hole saw too loose and I expect not aligned very well.

Alternatively the Cobra Swept Exhausts look good, especially with our exchange rate. I'm thinking I may be able to bring a set back as luggage on my next trip to the USA.

Cheers

If you really want some added noise, gut the pipes out.......remove the baffles and the back plate entirely and drill some holes in the baffle wall that is left inside:

Mark,

Do recall which Bunnings? I tried the ****burn one and they didnt have an extension. I tried AutoOne and the new Marlows (can't recall the new name) also out at ****burn and they didnt have one either. I was going to try ToolMart next, but another Bunnings would be easier to get to.

Hi WestOZ,

Only saw the response to this thread today. If you still need an extention, you can borrow mine rather than buying one. Let me know and we'll arrange to get it to you. :tools:
