    well visually, the milltek pips are round where as OEM are oval and the milltek will have milltek written on the tips. also the milltek will normally be a lot louder and deeper sounding

    I know. I have a milltek back box. But not sure if its just a back box, cat back or turbo back.

    Cheers

    ahhh got you
    you will have to get under the car and look at where the cat is, if its just a single pipe going into and out the cat then its a tbe system, if there is a bypass pipe running next to the cat then its a cat back, very much doubt its just a back box but you will have to see where there is a reducer section
