    How cheap and how loud!!!????

    The cheapest and loudest option, I would think is Remus straight through centre section, roughly £70.00 from LMF and Back box from your local powerflow franchise, circa £100.00

    OR it may be cheaper to have the hole lot made at the Powerflow dealer?. Get a quote...

    Ha, Ha, I know what you're saying BUT, I have had two custom exhausts made by 'Powerflow' dealers, The first was a bag of S***.

    But the second, which was fitted by a different dealer last week is absolutely spot on, both build and noise wise, I just cannot fault it and that's saying something for me!!!!

    P.S. I will send PM later about mesh mate!

    aye, but will you fault it when the low grade stainless gets surface rust


    i have heard success stories with powerflow, but tbh they are far outwieghed by the failures... they need some serious quality control attention

    I'll tell you the one I DID go to and it was these guys....

    http://customperformance.co.uk/

    They are at West Raisen, so not far at all from you!!!!

    It's a bit of a pain to find, but well worth it in my opinion!!!!

    Let me know if you decide to go for it....

    That's where I got mine done. The place looks a bit of a s*!thole but the eggy they did for mine was spot on. They also made me up a precat replacement pipe using 3" and 2.5" mandrel bends and the original flanges from my precat (which was knackered anyway!) for about £80.

    The only thing that disappointed me was that they used the original flange for connecting centre section they made to the original Cat - I was hoping to keep the original exhaust to put it back to standard at a later date.
