    New exhaust

    Had my new Powerflow exhaust fitted yesterday at MMV Performance (pics to follow), very happy, 3" CAT back with a 3" outward rolled tailpipe. Relatively quite but with a very nice burble indeed, only took 2 hours to have the system done, ad the car is certainly pulling a bit better better especially at high speed. Also decided to do something with the stereo so ordered some Pioneer components and bought a Pioneer bandpass box as well.

    On a side note, whilst I was at MMV I noticed they had a Milltek system sitting that had been ordered in for someone, after seeing it I am very happy in deciding to go for the Milltek, I was shocked to see that they don't use a mandrel bender, but simply sleeve and weld in pre cut bends on to the straidht sections, whilst the welding was very good I was shocked that this is the way they make their systems, especially given the cost, no offense to anyone that has one of these systems, just something I happened to notice.

    Dave, the reason Milltek are built in many sections is that they have to pack them to a certian size for shipping etc.

    I am suprised you went 3" Dave, this will cost you power/Torque on the long run.

    How come you did'nt go for the Milltek?

    Matt - mistake at top, its 2.5" not 3. I mean the the likes of your centre section where theres a bend instead of a bender it just a welded section, nothing to do with packaging etc.

    Didnt go for Milltek due to the cost and the fact I got my Powerflow done at a very very good price.
