    I have put Milltek in mine. Sounds sweet. A bit deeper sound not loud though. U can only notice when u floor it really. Makes throttle more responsive and smoother Deffinately.

    The milltek is a cat back and can sound really boomy, expecially on a motorway or long drive.
    If you want a noise then go for the Remus but why not just try disconecting the town/country flap on the std exhaust first and see how you get on. Your not going to get a performance upgrade from either because the std exhaust is not restrictive anyway.

    Paddy,
    I've often considered doin this to my 3.2 manual, is it easy? (any step-by-step guides). Does it make a noticiable difference? Any downsides (fuel etc...)?

    I have never tried it but i must make a little diferance or they wouldnt fit it. Its easy to disconect, its just above the tail pipe where it leaves the back box.

    Make sure you block the pipe up. If not it burns the vac. pump :)

    I think the vac. pump keeps pumping as it's open to atmosphere..... should be a closed loop....


    The pumps are easy and cheap to replace tho. if they are the same as R32 ones.... :)

    Have a search for R32 flapper mod. in google that will give you the idea. If not ask again and i'll take some pics.

    It doesn't make much difference noice wise just means both pipes are open all the time.
