Hi guys thanks for all the replys I have done a lot of mods to the bakkie will load some pics. Quick question I want to change my exhaust to a 76mm free flow system as I notice the hilux is a bit sluggish and not getting a good consumption. Will it help if I add a s/s free flow exhaust take out the centre box or replace with a free flow Centre box . Will it add more power and torque. Don't want to spend money if it's not going to do much.

I'm busy with this at the moment, everyone I've spoken to has a different opinion, some saw better is better others are saying it robs power when you go 76mm.

After all that discussion I'll be doing a 76mm exhaust with a single box, decat and mandrel bends. Should be done by end of this week.
