Had a Beaudesert 3" cast dump on my GU 4.2 ute and was happy with it rang them up for another as I have just bought a GU 4.2 wagon and they said they only sell it in a complete system! Anyway what is the best 3" cast dump out there now as I want to build my own exhaust again?!?!?!

The only true 3" cast dump I have seen was done by manta I believe. Happy to be corrected. Failing that just grab a fabricated item. Have you also looked at Scott's rods?

out of interest, what is the benefit of a cast dump pipe over another variant?

Keep temps inside the pipe rather than radiating into the engine bay.

Thin wall cast stainless negatest this almost entirely.

The only other benefits are to the manufacturer, they cost less to make a cast dump pipe than a fabricated one. The tooling is expensive but after they sell alot of them the cost is recovered.

Cool. I originally was going for the taipan ceramic coated. Maybe the better choice ?
