    Thinking of changing my miltek backbox??

    Hi guys just wanted your advice my miltek backbox just doesnt look right to me i was wondering if i say went to MIJ and got them to put a different backbox on would it change the flow/performance of my miltek system?

    Ive got a full miltek with hi flow cat.

    Thanks

    weird, how come you want to change the backbox? is it just hte tail pipes that are bothering you? or the noise? I'd say give MIJ a call see what can be done. Still surprised why you'd want to change the Milltek

    If its just the tailpies look, they could proabably just change your tailpipes, although chopping the miltek will kill your warranty. So maybe a new Backbox would be better, then if you have anywarranty claim on the miltek bit of it, you can refit the miltek if you need to.

    In answer to your question on flow etc, i'd be quite surprised if it made a huge difference right at the rear fo the car like that. So long ans the new backbox is not stuffed with three cushions or anything!!

    I have heard good things about them at MIJ and intend to go speak to them myself for a "quiet" system for my S3 eventually.

    One of the memober son here works there I think...?

    Yeah MIJ are very good i had a backbox and a De-cat at first the decat caused me problems so it had to go and AMD fitted me the full miltek,

    Just dont like the way to backbox is on the miltek the pipes curve down and under my bumper which i dont like,

    Which is why i want a different backbox!

    I went for the letterbox style pipe a while back (same as Defratos has got on his), went to MIJ to have it done a few months back. They did a good job of it and it suits the car better than a great big round chav style exhaust. Mine's a diesel so they had to trim the rear bumper a bit though.
