    How can it be lighter? Stainless is a heavier material. Or is all that wieght in the muffler and cat?

    probably thinner walls & if you don't have the supporting brackets it will be lighter :)

    I received this today and it a fairly large stainless strap - @Grantus you should check whether your kit has this get them to send you one as well if it doesn't. Apart from sending the strap they weren't very helpful at all how to mount it on the 1.9 engine -they just referred me to the two photos on the website which don't really show how it is mounted. I think the muffler just straps to the manifold then the whole thing just hangs off the exhaust flanges which do any seem that great to me.

    Cheers for the tag buddy. There was no strap in my package, but is that only needed for the 1.9? o_O

    No, I think you still need it for the 2.1

    I installed the Speedshop exhaust recently. It fit pretty well, except the fasteners didn't come with any flat or spring washers and then I needed longer bolts to fit these. It definitely seems to give more power going up hills but it is noisier than the standard exhaust.

    ps - only women watch days of our lives
