just rung milltek and the pipe is 72 quid direct from them. my mate work out this exhaust place that make exhausts for tourin cars/rally car etc. they said they put me a straight pipe in for 80-100 quid. saves me fitting it i suppose. what you think. which was would you go?

will i definately notice the sound differrence then?

Deffo go with the Miltek one as they wont use the same grade of Stainless (if at all) as the Miltek system and you will get them expanding at different rates thus working the clamps loose. I know from experience.

got it done at the customn place eventually

turns out its a guy my old man used to play football with who owns it!!!

he`s gave me a very reasonable price for doing the rest of the exhaust also. so my milltek is goin in the way for something a little more meaty sounding (not ricey!!!).

Well good luck, if you want more noise then you will most likely want to move every silencer possible I have just the back box no CAT centre silencer and is just about loud enough for me.

well i`ve only driven mine for 10 mins without the middle box so i`ll give it chance to have a good run. i.e warm up etc. did you notice straight away?

When I was running with standard CAT it sounded better warmed up.

If you really want some noise get rid of the CAT as this seemed to release a very nice growl from 3000 rpm upwards and a lot more noise, if you want to take it another step get a less restrictive turbo as you may guess that is next on my list.

i`ve not got a cat mate at the moment. it sounds really nice now but i want the overrun sound. my m8 has a cooper s and that has loads of backchat sound on the overrun. can i achieve the overun sound if i get a custom system?

the place i`m gettin it done at make exhaust for lambo`s and ferraris upon custom order. will i loose any power going away from the miltek?

Nope, as long as the exhaust internal bore is of 2.5" or greater.

God if i were to remove my centre box it would sound even more like a groupA rally car than it already does... If i were to remove the CAT too, i would be spitting 2 foot flames out the exhaust...

....hmm...good idea for track use [:D]

How do you go on with fault codes with no CAT?

well my car has only got one sensor before the cat. so no faults codes for me!

think the later one have got 2 sensors. is that right?

Yes, the DBW versions have pre cat and post cat sensors.
