    Custom exhaust in hampshire

    Hi, I currently have a miltec cat back jobby on my car. however, it is causing me lots of problems at the moment. firstly, it wont stop knocking even after numerous attempts to stop this. also, my mechanic has spotted a crack in the backbox section.
    after a bit of a think, i have decided to get a custom exhaust made up.
    my question is, has anybody got experience of any custom exhaust fabricators in or around hampshire? what should i expect to be paying?

    cheers

    Liam

    if you have a crack in the back box id approach miltek, i know another member had the same issue and tried everything to rectify it, even approached Miltek....but his hadnt split so you should have more joy hopefully.... the box is highly regarded as one of the best for this car..... so id be reluctant to go for one being made up if i were you and opt for another miltek if they agree to swap
