Smile Roaring Forties GT40 Australia

Hello Fellow Car Builders

It has taken me a long time to get around to posting my build progress.

I will start from 4 1/2 years ago and post daily until I catch up.

This Saturday is exciting times with the car going to the hub dyno for its first run (first start for that matter).

Hi Gus

Attached are few photos of today just to let people know how far it has progressed.

Re: Roaring Forties GT40 Australia

Welcome Malcom
Nice work on the RF.
Now that's an exhaust system, shouldn't have a problem meeting the noise level test.
Looking forward to your daily updates.

Clayton

Thank you. 316 Stainless Steel ceramic coated. Fully purge welded. 1&7/8" headers (tuned length), 3" X-Pipe. Magnaflow Ceramic Cats S/Steel, Magnaflow Race Mufflers and Standard Mufflers. Did not ceramic coat any of these, just polished. All Quick connect V Band Clamps. Mufflers all straight thru, no baffles. So could be loud. Might need to baffled depending on Saturdays tests.

Hi Malcom, How did the rolling road go? What figures did you get?
