Ha! That's funny - the one person I know with the Borla system on an ur-q
complains about it to no end ("back when I had my Lotus europa..."). So 
maybe it's just a bad system and we should be glad that it's NLA.

As far as the Stebro system Pete Orman mentioned, I'd be careful. From the
info on their web page, it looks like they group the 4Kq and ur-q together.
Like there's one system for both cars. So unless they have a 2.5" diameter
system for the 4kq...

Borla also has a web page: www.borla.com

Yep. I installed those roller-chain exhaust hangers from Techtonics when I
put in my Scorpion system, and this seems to help hold everything in the 
right position. But, you still have to play with the triangular clamp 
juctions to get everything lined up right. What fun.

Good day.
