    What Exhaust?

    Hi,

    Have just been to Jabbasport (well worth the trip as they found out what was wrong with my car) and they have told me the centre section of my exhaust has corroded and a clip has fallen off. I am going to bite the bullet and replace the lot from the cat back.

    Who shall I use???

    I have heard lots of horror stories about Milltek not fitting and knocking etc.

    Has anyone used Powerflow? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] (Have I just offended anyone) are they any good performance wise or is a max power type of thing.

    I want to get a decent exhaust as I am planning a remap in June.

    Or, shall I just get one from kwikfit and noone will be any the wiser?

    Cheers

    I think those powerflow exhausts are crap. They are knocked up from generic sections and well... i think you got it right first time, they are too maxyP. For the corsa brigade IMO.

    None will actually make any notable differnce to power both standard and once remapped from what i've read on here.

    Re: What Exhaust?

    I liked the look and sound of my Supersprint road exhaust. The twin 90mm fit the S3 cut out on the bumper nicely. They're not cheap though... about 500 for cat back.

    Remember the standard exhaust does not cause any restriction... so spending on an aftermarket exhaust will only give you better looks and sound rather than extra power.

    Re: What Exhaust?

    My problem is that the Audi parts are 444.68 plus fitting and powerflow quoted me about 350 all in.

    I am not going to be too Maxy P as I do not want a tailpipe hanging out the back. I am going to keep it hidden as it is now.

    Jetex do one, but it sits below the bumper and I think this might look a bit odd.

    Milltek have had too many problems for me to be silly enough to get one.

    Supersprint are nice, but pricey. Plus I will have to cut the bumper.

    Maybe Kwikfit might be an option???

    Will a powerflow really be that bad?

    My mate had a Jetex on his A3, it sat very low and just didnt look right.

    Supersprint a very good quality and worth the extra in my opinion. I will be getting one in the next couple of months.

    Re: What Exhaust?

    Cheers Revdup,

    Got the email and it is a good price. Only issue will be the travel really.

    Have spoken to Jabba again today and they can do me a deal when I go up for my remap in June. Am a bit concerned about performance of custom systems as I have been told they dont always offer the right back pressure for the engine etc.

    How far from Bromsgrove are you revdup?

    Cheers

    Rob

    Re: What Exhaust?

    MIJ based in walsall, also why not use the AA route plan or using the post-code.

    In regards to performance, i will tell you that im certainly pleased with mine and jojo of the forum has had a visual and listen of it.

    Also DGannon of the forum has had a backbox from us, he's pretty happy. I guarantee you'll be pleased. Also tell me what exactly are you after?

    A quite system setup like mine. Just whooshes when turbo comes in.??

    Hi Revdup,

    Sorry, realised it was a bit of a lazy question to ask. I reckon you have twisted my arm, will drop an email or call to try and book in. I am coming from Kent, but my mate lives in Bromsgrove so will sort it when I am there.

    Cheers again, see you in the near future.

    We can use these or if you would still like to keep the exhaust hidden, not a problem... we'll have a chat on the day. S3 look??

    We'll do all the modifications to the bumper to suit! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    Re: What Exhaust?

    Nice one! Looking forward to it now. Wife is a bit fed up with me going on about the car now. Have finally broken her!!! Getting the exhaust and the remap from Jabba.

    My advice is to keep at it and the wife will eventually cave in. I am sure the Mortgage company will understand how important it is to have a quicker car!

    See you Saturday Maz!
