Pacemaker King Brown 3" Stainless Exhaust - Mitsubishi MQ And MR Triton 2.4L TD DPF Back System
Pacemaker's King Brown range is specific to 4WD vehicles.
Each system is mandrel bent and manufactured from 1.5mm wall thickness 409 Stainless Steel that is coated in a unique King Brown powder coat finish for added protection.
This system is a DPF back 3" system to suit the Mitsubishi MQ and MR Triton with the 2.4-litre turbo-diesel engine.
The full system as described in the product title made up of a number of sections depending on the vehicle type, and all fixings needed to bolt it all up to your 4X4, including top-quality hardware and flange gaskets.
If you've read our About Page, you'll know that our mantra is to only sell top-quality gear, preferably, the best available, and that's why the exhaust systems we have for sale are all made by Pacemaker.
Pacemaker is a mid-sized Adelaide-based manufacturer that has been making exhausts for decades. It's a family business and the owners, aside from being petrolheads, are passionate about making the very best exhaust systems available, systems designed to last and just as importantly, to fit, first time, every time. That's a big deal if you're paying a fitter, or lying on your back in the driveway doing it yourself!
You'll find cheaper exhausts out there if it's cheap that you're chasing, but you won't find a better exhaust than a King Brown.
We've had two Tritons fitted with King Brown DPF back systems and ran the MQ up on a local dyno to see if it made a difference, and it did - click here to view the dyno sheet.
While there was only a modest change to the exhaust note due to the DPF, we saw a 12kW gain in engine output, and even more impressively, a very worthwhile drop in EGTs, which is a good thing both off-road and when towing.
Our current MR Triton oddly has a more pronounced 'note' than the MQ Triton, which just goes to show that there are differences from vehicle to vehicle, which cannot be explained (these two should be identical in theory). You can hear the MR note in the video below.
That aside, we've visited the Pacemaker factory many times, witnessed their attention to detail and pedantic (sorry Mike!) approach to every aspect of building the best exhaust systems on the market.
Note: The above is our experience with our own vehicles and the results will vary between various vehicle makes and models.
We offer free shipping on all Pacemaker exhausts listed in our store, to most locations within Australia.
Some 'out of the way' locations won't be covered by this deal, and if it turns out that you happen to live in one of those (you'll find out at check out), get in touch with us and we'll get delivery priced for you.
COVID-19 has had massive impacts on the manufacturing industry, freight, and ironically, also spiked demand for many products that have experienced supply restrictions.
Most products are still available, but you should expect to have to wait for some products, that you might want, to come back into stock.
Unfortunately, it's just the way it is right now and it's unlikely to change for the foreseeable future.
Front Runner - Products that are in stock, in our experience, ship very promptly, usually within 24 hours, direct from Front Runner.
If the product is out of stock, we'll provide a pre-order option and if you proceed to pre-order, we'll set up an alert so that we can arrange purchase and shipping to you, as soon as the product is back in stock.
Out-of-stock products can take 1 to 4 weeks to come back into stock again, as a general rule.
Pacemaker King Brown Exhausts - Pacemaker's product is literally as good as it gets and since COVID-19 hit, they've been working flat out to keep up with demand, which means many of their systems aren't kept in stock right now.
We've set all of their systems to pre-order and we will order your exhaust as soon as your pre-order purchase is processed. Expect a 3-week wait for your system to be manufactured and then a few days for shipping.
If it happens to be in stock, your exhaust system will ship directly to you from Pacemaker, within 2 to 4 days, and yes, you might get lucky on this one as they are slowly catching up.
CSA Alloy Wheels - If the wheel you want is shown as in stock, it will ship directly to you from one of CSA's Australian warehouses, within 2 to 4 days.
If it's not in stock, but we know the next shipment is coming through, we'll set the product to pre-order. Pre-ordering means that CSA will reserve the wheels you purchase in the next stock delivery that they receive, effectively putting you up the front of the queue.
If you choose to pre-order, expect a 6 to 8-week wait, again, due to COVID 19 related freight disruptions for the most part.
Milford Products - Milford makes some products to keep in stock while others are made to order, and like many other manufacturers at the moment, it can be a battle to maintain the usual level of 'in stock' products.
If a product is in stock, it will ship directly to you from Milford in Adelaide within 2 to 4 days of your order being placed.
If a product isn't in stock, we'll provide a pre-order option on this site. Pre-ordering means that we'll place an order with Milford for your purchased product.
Allow 10 to14 days for it to be manufactured and then shipped to you from Adelaide.
If you have any questions regarding delivery timing, stock availability, or pre-ordering, let us know via ourcontact page.
Here's a couple of our recent video reviews. Steane and David have been reviewing the latest 4X4s for years, nearly as long as Brendan has been designing suspension for them!
Great exhaust gives a nice note also seems to boost quicker
Super easy to install in the driveway
Loaded 4x4 store is super easy to deal with
Thanks again for the great service
Great exhaust system, fits straight on as they said it would. Makes a difference, particularly helps get rid of turbo lag down low.
Easy install and sound however 2 nuts needed to bolt on the DPF pipe weren’t included so I had to source those myself.
I had the Pacemaker King Brown 3” stainless exhaust system installed in my MR Triton 6 weeks ago. I’m happy to say, while initially being a little tentative prior to purchase with concerns about increased exhaust noise, I’m very happy with it.
It has a very slightly increased exhaust noise and a little “sigh” when you come off the accelerator, but other than that, it is barely noticeable. The mechanic that fitted it pulled in after a test drive and commented “Gee you realise how much the DPF must contribute to noise suppression as you can barely notice any change in noise with this exhaust.”
The benefits, while subtle, are clear to feel. The turbo spools far more quickly, which in turn all but eliminates the previous turbo lag when decelerating for a corner and then giving a quick squirt on the throttle to get through a gap in traffic that it occasionally suffered with before.
Seat of the pants, it spools up much faster and has better midrange power. Although untested by me, it also boasts lower EGT’s when towing which can only be a good thing.
