    Exhaust problem!!

    Wanting (not needing) a new exhaust on the car. Have bought the pre-cat replacement from Norm on here and am looking for full cat back system. Asked about a blueflame one on ebay but, he will not replace the 6"x4" oval tailpipe for a 4" inrolled, round Is it worth phoning Blueflame direct and "asking this question?" Or, just bite the bullet and buy a Milltek @ £325.96 inc P&P????? An extra £100 Blair will NOT entertain a 6"x4" oval tailpipe - no matter how cheap

    Advice please!

    How about going and getting the blue flame, then going to an exhaust fabricator and getting him to do a new tail pipe or even just the end bit?

    If its the whole back box, you could easy sell the BF one?

    N/P

    I would have no idea how much the back box would be worth on its own, but to gauge a price-age, I had my precat fitted, my one-piece precat and cat chopped to fit and a flange put on the cat for £60 from a fabricator.

    Not expensive if you ask me. And it would be the best of both worlds.

    For example...

    Blueflame buy it now... £250
    Fabricated backbox £100 (ball park?)
    Sell B/F backbox on ebay or on here £100? (ball park yet again)

    Does sound ideal! Money is of the essence just now (isn't it always) We're having a new bathroom/kitchen/skirtings/facings/doors etc and need to save as many pennies as possible - 4 kids and only one wage coming in

    Cheers Rob
