    Free bump...

    Iv looked for a 3" turbo back system also.... closest I could find was a 2.75" pre-cat ... rest would have to be custom for a decent price

    2.75" will be more than adequate for 300+ bhp applications

    its just often easier for a lot of suppliers to source 2.5/3" pipework so they tend to suggest one or the other

    2.75" is readily available and therefore this is what Id suggest - best of both worlds but then again Im assuming you want 3" no matter what!

    there are companies out there who can supply systems in 3" but id rather not recommend them as they are simply crap!

    I was running just under 300bhp with a 2.25" exhaust Am now looking at high 300's/low 400s so needing a 3".

    Pipers prices are silly, £900 for a turbo back? Got quoted about £550 for a turbo back 3" inc 100cell sports cat made to the car but I dont have an engine and wont for a few months and pvs will be just around the corner by that point!

    where was this £550 figure from?

    was it a reputable supplier? please dont tell me it was sheffield cowboy customs aka exhaustsuk? lol

    900 for a 3" turbo back sounds good to me!

    I would be looking at paying close to that for a regular 2.5" and i did albeit half of it is custom

    Nope not exhaustsuk, I have a cat back from them on my mk3 gsi and its a good system. Also know of a forum member with a 3" from them on his Z20LEH (from the company quoting me £550)

    I originally paid £100 for 70mm pre cat (LMF) £110 powerflow 2.25" stainless steel de cat and £280 powerflow 2.25" cat back exhaust so that lot cost me just under £500.

    I then bought a 2.5" 100cell blueflame cat section for £235 delivered, 2.5" miltek for £250 and kept the 70mm precat...

    I guess am back to paying yet another £500 for a 3"!!!!

    sorry but they are 2 of the most overrated names imo

    milltek are over priced and common for cracking

    blueflame arent the best either

    but then again thank god for personal choice and opinion and we all have our own experiences with each
