    That system is from a Sheffield based custom place called ExhaustsUK - bloody top notch guys to deal with and fantastic quality pipework.

    Ive just had a Dual exit fitted a few weeks back - there prices vary depending on what u want but on a NA model (ie where the pipework is slightly smaller diameter than the turbo models) the rear box assembly is circa £285 or cat-back systems for £420 (£400 for straight thru centre section cat back)

    Various tailpipes add extra ontop of that - but the above are for standard NA models so expect a little more on top for the bigger bore of the turbo models.

    They do 200cpi sports cats for £120 each so can virtually tailor the system to your requirements.

    They can be contacted on 0800 043 5011 or www.exhaustsuk.co.uk - they also have a dedicated page in TV magazine for anyone interested.

    Pics of my Dual 6x4s can be found in the garage <---

    Have you got the standard GSI back bumper? if you have a quad exhaust may not look as good as odd jobs as there is a recess on the left hand side for the standard exhaust.

    Powerflow will make you a custom one on site. Might be easier than trying to find the seperate bits.

    You will lose power if you go for a quad system. Too much back pressure.

    On my old coupe I had a system with a pipe either side and it lost a lot of power, changed it for a single exit and the power came straight back!

    did a dual exit with powerflow on the bus, it robbed me of loads of power. i wouldn't advise using powerflow IMHO in fact i'll be buying a miltec cat back system in the new year, not that i'm unhappy with it, it sounds great! but its a bit 'lancaster' like when on the motorway (it is also extremly loud when stamping on the loud pedal )
