Are you selling the parts from the front brake kit? I already have calipers and some others, but I need the mounts/adapters...

The adapters in the kit come from MPM.
You can get the Godfrey ones from mc2racing: http://mc2racing.com/products/xr4ti/bra ... index.html
And from time to time Mike McCreight here on the forum will make runs of brackets also.

We have the lines available seperately if you need those also FYI

Nice!
Would it be possible to get some shots of it mounted, from under the car, to see exactly how it fits? Would like to know how it's routed, access to the drive shaft, etc.
Thanks in advance, believe it would be very helpful.

Just joined the forum! Saw that this thread started in 2008 and thought, "No way it still going...".

Sure enough it is!

Love that exhaust, I'll probably spend days on this thread alone.

Mike, could you give us some details on the muffler? I would guess it's a straight through design but what type of packing does it use?
Merkur....Its German for Mutt....Mustang, Saab, Volvo, Lincoln, Contour, Cummins... and the list goes on.

The routing? It attaches at EVERY factory mounting point and even though pipe diameter is larger, it takes up much less space than the factory system.

I had a bunch of installed pictures but they were all accidentally erased so I just grabbed a quick tailpipe shot to quickly have something else to show besides the system pieces sitting on the ground.

While its just a tailpipe picture, it is a good reflection of the rest of the system fitment to the car. The angle on the tailpipe cut in relation to the cut out in the factory bumper, the TIG welded rod into the factory hanger, etc.

This was made with these goals in mind:
Be the best fitting, best performing, best looking, best sounding 3" exhaust ever offered for the XR4Ti.

You're correct - its a straight through "glasspack" design.

To add onto the requests, what does it sound like? I am looking for a good exhaust that doesnt sound like a cheap honda. Looks promising

It sounds great. I had a sound clip on the phone but when I played the clip back it sounded nothing like what it does in real life.

*** Just one of these exhausts left in stock FYI ***

It is "unpolished" stainless and has the same finish as this one installed on an XR4Ti here:

Great for anyone who prefers this style finish over the mirror polished finish.

***LAST ONE AVAILABLE AT THE INTRODUCTORY PRICE***
