I have installed the "Bell" stainless system on my TR4 project. THe
installation is just as advertised.. a perfect fit and the price was $225 +
shipping. According to Bell, their system is 100 % stainless not like the
falcon which is just stainless on the outside, the internals are not
stainless they say... I dont know for sure about that statement.
Too soon to tell about the sound. I have the engine running but the body is
still off etc. Not been able to test drive. But running in the garage it
doesnt sound any louder than my TR3A with it's std mild steel system.
Bell is made in the UK.
