    Powerflow, that is what i am doing. now.

    Have a sleeve backbox which im kepping now and gettign a centre section made up.
    for £94 fitted aswell and its a bargain in my eyes as its fitted and ill have a entire brand new exhaust, alot throatier aswell as it has no centre silencer.

    So it wont sound like a hairdrier any more, hopefully

    I would advise u to avoid Powerflow. Theres alot better alternatives out there that I'm sure people will tell you about.

    I have had powerflow and i know there is alot better out there.
    Having a powerflow system before i wouldnt go for a full P/F system..
    As i am retaining the rear silencer and they are goign to use the same bore on the centre section i am hoping that it wont be bad atall and will still have all of the back pressure as im usign a standard rear silencer.

    Im not goign to have a centre silencer, think that this wil be too loud?

    I want it near silent just so you can notice a tone, thats all

    Ps the rear silencer is a brand new coupe sleeve fitment, that is the main reason that i am going for this

    Even powerflow should be OK doing a sleeve fitting centre pipe, as they will only have to weld two of their coathanger gauge rods on the top to act as hangers.

    It will only entail bending a pipe, two welds for the hangers and two clamps.
