I ran a standard xr2 system. Then upgraded to a full Janspeed system.
I niticed a HUGE difference in power just from that one upgrade alone.

But Magnex stainless is supposed to be the best you can / could buy off the shelf.

I ran a standard XR2 exhaust (they only have 1 box anyway) and bolted it straight onto a Janspeed 4 branch manifold. That made a very noticeable difference. Well worth fitting a 4 branch in my opinion

I ran a 4-2-1 mani, standard XR2 exhaust but cut the rear straight pipe that’s normally a noise reduced and welded a 2inch pipe on. Power felt so much better smother, and the end change was a good sound through out the revs. Not chavish.
