    in all honesty mate, go with whatever you can afford.
    It does make a big difference to both petrol and diesel, and if you budget go as far as 4wd supercenter, buy it, if is a legendex awesome, and the other more expensive brands again, go for it.
    You'll that no matter what brand you get, you'll get a goo improvement, and the differences between one brand and another is minimal.

    What isnt minimum is how much it'll set you back.
    $1000-3500.
    could be cheaper if you fit it youself, or more expensive if you start playing with the layout and getting custom made parts.

      Worth it is a very subjective question. For me yes it was but wouldnt buy what i did again.

      Fitting it yourself will save a heap of money IF you can get the last nut off the turbo. You will understand if you try .

      Cheap exhausts may have an annoying drone under load.

      Do you really need stainless instead of mild steal? Personally, no.

      How much? Shop around and may not be as expensive as you think.

            Hey Juz,

            The exhaust is a Genie that i purchased as a special offered through Prado Point. Was about to buy another Beaudesert exhaust like i had on my 2001 Prado but grabbed this one instead.

            Why didnt i like it? The dump pipe was no different to the factory one and the difference in exhaust noise with the Steinbauer turned on was a lot. No chip, very little exhaust noise but once fitted there was noticeable difference exhaust noise in the cabin under any load and that was with muddies fitted. After about 12 months the dump pipe decided to part company with the top flange on the turbo as there was no support for the exhaust but the dump pipe was replaced under warranty and then it had the required support bracket.

            The exhaust is still on the Prado 5 years later, if i had my time again i would have gone Beaudesert again.

              I asked this question to the blokes at Bundy. They tune these things so have real dyno figures to back up their answers.
              Stock system flows very well and a 3" aftermarket/noisy job will give you approx 5hp extra at the top, simply not worth the trouble, unless you drive everywhere at 4000rpm.
              If you're looking at an exhaust in order to gain some hp, just get it tuned, you'll be amazed.
