Im about to purchase a stainless steel exhaust for my beloved TT, now which do i go for, do i go for back box only cat back or full system ?? dont really want to spend more that 400.. not quite sure where that leaves me, theres so many on the net/ebay im a tad confused..i want a nice sounding, slight power increase system.. would rear box do that? ive seen them for as little as 265, or do i need more, any helpfull advice welcomed.. oh and can i fit myself, or do you recommend for an extra 30 odd quid going to a exhaust/tyre bay.
thanks

off the shelf and easier to access is:
blueflame
miltek
magnex

do a search on those and for 400 notes, it's going to be a catback option

miltek for me looks too much like stock
magex, is nice, but on some angles the tail pipe looks maybe too big
blueflame, the tail pipes are good size, but the back box hangs low.

I'm in the same boat, and equally confused - especially by the apparent recent low quality stuff that Milltek are putting out. Another name to check out is Jetex, they seem to be a quality product.

thanks, looks like im swaying towads magnex, at around 400 delivered, theres another called scorpian, but i think its non resinated, looks like from the pics theres no little silencer mid pipe, for £370 will that sound toooo ladish ? or do they sound nice without the mid little silencer?

my mate bought one of these of ebay direct from blueflame £380,a 225 fitment and put it on his 180, because they supply a 180 to 225 fitment adaptor in the kit...its not noisy at all :) which is good but i think it sticks out to far compared to OEM one!!!

have a look on the powerflow web site try to find a fittin centre round you.
they hooked me up with a full de cat exhaust with 4" slash cut tail pipes for £405 thats fitted. custom work so can make it sound as load or as quiet as you like mine has just the one silencer in the midle section and sounds and looks awsome


short sound clip gives kinda an idea of the exhaust note

I had a miltek for 3 years, the tips went rusty, they cleaned up but still see spots even when polished, I gave that to Juber and he has used it for about a year I think unless he has passed it on, so the baffles are good quality,

I now have a blueflame, it sounds better and has more power in mid range, maybe this is because the miltek was getting old? Also the Miltek leaked from the mid section from day one I always had to get it done up at the tyre place.

I love the look and sound of the magnex

Yet another rusty Milltek. What's got into these guys? They're a sponsor of this site, there's lots of bad press about their exhausts floating around at the moment, yet not a peep out of them to explain if there's been a bad batch of metal or something. I think they're going through a seriously rough phase.

that's the cheapest place i've found for them aswell. direct off ebay £391 and free if you collect which is what i'll be doing as i'm only 5 mins away.

Perhaps we could get a group buy to drop the price further?
