Standard exhaust downpipes+collector wanted
« on: April 21, 2018, 10:25:03 AM »
I know its early days to ask, but does anyone here in the UK have a stock exhaust system for sale? I al looking for the downpipes and collector/cat, don't need to silencer. I love the polished finish on the standard downpipes, especially being double skinned to eliminate heat stains, so intend to cut open the collector, rip out the internal baffling and cat, install a perforated pipe section and wrap it all in exhaust packing, then re-weld it back together. The whole idea is to have a louder exhaust but retain the standard appearance.

Alternatively, does anyone produce a collector to use with the standard can where the finish is highly polished stainless, with a similar finish to the original? From what I can see on images of the Akropovic, the finish is quite a raw stainless finish.

I have a set that I dont need, You can have them for £150 plus postage. They are in Rotherham at the moment so it will be a few weeks before I can weigh them and get a quote for postage.

Still on the lookout for a standard exhaust system if anyone has one they are looking to sell?
