From what I heard, people love the TOGS.

there have been some noise issues with the SLPs, the TOGS has a better flex pipe.

Pretty much goign to be your choice. The SLPS are cheaper and do the job but the TOGS are probably an easier install with less problems such as swaybar clear or the ticking. I run the SLPs and am happy with them. I think caminated2k runs them as well so you know they perform.

There was a great comparison a year or so ago between the two. Plenty of pictures to show the differences and there wasn't too much doubt that if price weren't an issue, the TOGs were the way to go.

Good question. Kinda of surprising that with the L36/L67 market in Canada (especially in SE Canada) that there isn't a a Canadian vendor.
If you want to save some try checking the Toronto area Club GP site (sorry I don't know the address but no doubt there is a link over at www.clubgp.com) and see if there are any GP guys selling theirs.
If no one wants to sell your best bet would probably be Intense seeing as they are probably the closest(?) vendor.
Good luck,
Martin

I have the TOGs on my car and I'm very pleased with them. The only issue you may have installing them is a clearance issue with the torque mount bracket attacheched to the tranaxle.

I had to remove about 3/8" from the top of the bracket for the front header to fit.

If you'd like to see my car I'll be close to you on Saturday. I'll be at the Tim Horton'* on McGill street in Hawkesbury at 10:00 AM Saturday to meet on Ottawa GPer. Actually I was in Rockland doing a rocker install last weekend.

If you'd like, I could ask the guy I'm meeting to bring his just received *&* headers so you can peak at those too.

Cheers,

Hey Paulnold, if you haven't gotten any yet you might check over at www.3800tech.com -Jonathan Cain is selling his TOGs and flex pipe for $575 including shipping (to Canada maybe at this point as they've been listed for 1 week and no replies).
Anyhow here'* the link if you are a member there -otherwise you will need to register to view the post. If you don't want to sign up there I can get his e-mail and PM it to you.
