    Got my astra back today from magnex and got to say im pritty impressed, she's now got on her a front cat replacement pipe, standard middle cat, and full system cat back, it sounds mint and goes a hell of a lot better. My car was there test car so i recived all for free , the power and torque figures have gone up to an impressive 258.2 bhp and 256.1 lbft [img]

    Have to say I prefer the looks of this system to the Milltek.
    Any ideas what they will be charging for this?
    Cheers

      Nice - how does it sound ?
      tuner talk: "Just get out and drive the damn things !!!"
      The truth is out there ...

        Should imagine its very similar to the Magnex 6x4.
        Very nice low down grumble without the BWAAARRRRRRBBBBBBB.
        It produces a nice deep drone on my corsa.
        have to say I prefer the look of this also.
        You say you still have the standard middle cat and removed the Pre Cat.
        How much was it?? Going on previous Magnex prices (I liek Magnex), it won't be anything like the Miltex hopefully?

          ITS SOUNDS REALLY DEEP AND NOT TO LOUD, AND POP'S OFF ALL THE TIME, MAGNEX TRY'D A SPORTS CENTER CAT ON IT AND IT LOST BHP DUE TO LOSS OF BACK PRESSURE, UNSURE OF THE PRICE BUT ITS GOIN TO BE ON SALE SOON. :wink:

            I also think that looks rather smart. Well done Magnex as the bumper cut out is not the easiest to fill nicely.

                Thats strange as turbos don't work on back pressure. Thats NA engines. With a turbo you want to exhaust the gasses out as soon and smoothly as possible.

                    Astra VXr ECU control is very sensitive to back pressure ,and can result in a drop in boost pressure the ECU calibration can require a re learning process it was a very sensitive area in testing the origonal Z20LEH engine. Boost control is not so simple on this engine.

                      Love the shape. Looks really good, but having full miltek fitted to mine.

                          I think that looks great. I wonder if they will do a system for the Vectra, as the milktek is still not on the scene.

                            Sent PM to John T requesting info, otherwise it may have to go to BTB , Haywood and Scott or Magnex. Have to say I'm getting fed up with waiting.

                              Just had a look at Magnex's website, they seam to suggest that they make OEM exhausts for TVR, Aston and some Jaguars. Does anyone know if this is correct?
