    Default Milltek VS Cobra

    Morning everyone!

    For the past 5 months I've been trying to decide what exhaust I want for my VXR.

    I've finally narrowed it down to three systems

    Cobra 3" Turbo Back Double Decat Resonated
    Milltek 2.5" Cat Back Non-Resonated w/ TX precat delete and Cobra 2.5" Decat
    Milltek 2.5" Cat Back Resonated w/ TX precat delete and Cobra 2.5" Decat

    Does anyone have one of these systems? If you do please leave a comment about whether it drones and how nice it sounds and whether you get a lot of pops and bangs <3


    I would of loved a Remus but the cost of them are to expensive and the ones I find for good prices are usually when I have no money lol

    Thumbs up Milltek gets my vote

    I have a non-resonated 2.5" Milltek system with TX decat (not sure what my precat is, possibly Milltek as well) - not quite what you were asking but here's my thoughts. Low revs, quiet but a nice burble. Open it up and it sounds nice, drone level is more than bearable. I listened to a few Cobra systems before I got mine and it was just too asbo for my liking. Mine used to pop and bang loads until I had it mapped (standard to stage 3), now I get very few but a nice run-down popping sound instead.

    Only downside is it takes a lot of adjustment when fitted, they all seem to knock on the rear bumper. Mines been adjusted a couple of times and each time it goes back to knocking. Don't know if the Cobra is as bad for this, but otherwise I find Milltek is generally very good quality.
    I did it...I got me one!

    I have a cobra non res, good system but not the best tone - piper is better imo. Will drone on motorway etc but either embrace the noise or stick the radio on (loud)

    I've got a sub and upgraded speakers so I'm sure I can block out the drone if I'm by myself or with friends but the journey to work with family would be the only time I cant blast my music...that's why I'm looking for one without drone XD

    You live local to bromley bud?

    Same here, although tbh hardly have the music on. Noise tends to be a fight between my diff and the exhaust so I just dont bother. I dont use it everyday so thankfully not too fussed with the drone.

    Find the drone fine if your in the front, passengers in the rear however always like to tell me it is really loud, so I dont have people in the back now

    Live near Hampton Court, about 40 mins from bromley fella

    I had the milltek with a TX sport cat and it sounded superb

    Avoid the Cobra if you like a nice tone they are just noise
