    Ive put a straight axle kit through my splitty and its sitting pretty damn low. 70mm from the ground (beetle extractors exhaust)

    I need something that sits higher to pass rego, Engine wise its a standard rebuilt 1600cc with twin Carbs (Kadrons).

    Any idea's? Obviously the Vintage speed exhaust looks the best but i cant really justify spending $800 when its not a fully worked engine.
    Will a stock exhaust restrict me with the dual carbs?

    Should i buy a stock exhaust ($250), Empi JustKampers for lowered bus ($270) or sell my left testicle for the VintageSpeed?

    Any advice appreciated!

    If you go the VS you won't be disappointed- either that or the stock one - not empi

    Testicles are a disadvantage in lowered splitties anyway. :)

    I put a VS on my standard 1600TP about a year ago at the same time I put on twin Kads. To me it was some of the best money I've spent on the bus.
    About 6 weeks ago I upgraded to a brand new 2110 and was able to transfer the VS and Kads on to that.

    Don't think of it as spending $800, think of it as spending an extra $550. You wont be disappointed. :D

    Just my opinion.

    Don't expect much life out of the empi :confused:
    Stock 1600 with dual carbs and and a standard exhaust should work ok ;)

    I've got a VS on one bus and just bought another for another bus, big dollars but worth it in my opinion
