Hi there!

I saw these 4" flame burnt tip exhausts in a R-Tech advertisement and want one! I rang them up,wanting to purchase one but they said they do not fit them as they require pipe BENDING :lol: and welding in order to be fit!?!? :eek: :eek:

Does anyone have a universal fit backbox on their car and how/where did u go about fitting it? Any ideas how much will cost to fit?

too much work required IMO, i bought a rage twin 3 inch backbox which was "universal" but bodyshop couldnt fit it as it didnt have the hangers, and i need all sorts like reducer pipes etc, so took it back and got an irmscher one which slid straight on :)

for what you pay, and the effort to fit it, just spend a few ££ extra and get a custom one made up

Exhaust trim! :lol: No thanks! I'd rather have the standard pea shooter hidden away under the bumper! :lol:

I probably get a peco backbox or sumthing cheap then. Basically,want a bit more grunt from me motor,not a **** off loud 'hear me comin from the next town' exhaust, just an exhaust tone that will give me an excuse to rev the engine (once in a while! :wink: ) but not deafen me on the motorways!

Any suggestions? :?

p.s. I have a 1.2 SXi

i got a powerflow exhaust from my mate, from the car that some1 wrote off, obv it wasnt a universal exhaust so i grinded the backbox off the centre pipe, grinded the standard backbox from my corsa off and then a straight swap fitted perfectly the welded it on, i also cut the silencer out and replaced that with a 2" straight pipe and again welded that into place, i then grinded off the hangers and welded them on to the powerflow backbox, overal it took me bout 45 mins to do all that.

Lol Anything that says "Universal" is so much trouble! Says it's easy to apply/equip/whatever but really not haha!
