You and your tingling wallet! At least you've trained it to tingle at the right times.

If this works out. I will be looking at making a full exhaust with bypass option. I will get some of my work up early Jan to showcase to you guys.

I cannot be 100% sure of the make of the one I have however this looks very much the same with the same Blue Vacuum pipe.

There are two valves in my system.  But everything else looks the same cannot say if its a 3" or 4" valve used.

Thanks for the link, Lesmo :)

 

I would expect it to be 2.5" max for a twin set.

Sorry for such a big delay and no update from me.

Excellent!!

Sub,d to this thread. I discovered this forum entirely from searching for aftermarket W brace support. I have been tempted to try out the Ultra Race piece but I haven't found anyone who has tried it. Not convinced enough to be the guinea pig.

Welcome to the Owners Club Big! It would be great if you start up a new thread to introduce yourself and your Z :)

Ok guys, should have something to show in the next day or so. Its similar to the UltraRacing but perhaps a little more substantial. The mounting plates are maybe a little thicker than necessary.  Obviously I will be putting it straight onto my Z to trial it for a week or so. Will get some pics sorted, soon. :)

Everything cut and drilled. Just need to clean, deburr and shape things so they look better. Make sure its all nice and square and weld it up.  

 

Here is a quick pic. I'm going to try some POR15 on mine just to see how it handles such a vulnerable spot on the car. 

 

The profile is the same as the stock item, 20mm in height so no closer to the ground.

Looks like a lovely piece of metal - shame it's rarely seen.
