  • Magnex pre cat D/Pipe

    Hi

    i was woundering if anyone knows much about the Magnex Pre cat down pipe thinking of getting one but wanted to know if anyone knows the differnce between the magnex and the Courtenay Sport High Flow 70mm Front pipe
    the bore size is different the magnex one only being 63.5mm.

    i have heard the courtenay one pops a bit does the magnex one do the same?

    Cheers

    No idea, i would recommend going for a full turbo back exhaust as you will get the most benifit, a remus which i have is amazing, pops and bangs all the way and i felt the difference when i had it. Save up and get a full system.

      i can answer this question!

      when i bought my milltek system i had the magnex downpipe fitted and it worked well until one day i was going through town and i basically lost all power and seemed like i was driving about in the biggest tractor ever! opened the bonnet and the top weld had completely broken off! i may be the only one this has happened 2 but the weld was really poor! also magnex have gone bust so if the same happens to you then you wont get a replacement!

      after this happened i bought the courtenays pipe and i felt a diffrence straight away with the bigger bore pipe over the magnex, felt more responsive and so far so good on the welds

      thats my speel over

        put a full magnex turbo back system on mine 10 months ago,no probs so far, I found the remus to loud,magnex is quiet untill you give it the beans then sounds like a jet taking off,pops and bangs on flat out gear changes.

              Remus is the exhaust of choice i would say, especially as its vauxhall apporved as it can be brought as an extra on a new car. Milltek used to be approved but no longer are, and magnex have gone bust.

              Best bet is to do abit of research, find which exhausts intrest you then have a ride in VXR's with them on, a meet is a good place to do this then you can make up your own mind.

                    milltek and remus are both 'approved' exhausts, milltek used to be the one in the brochure but remus now replaces this, both will keep your warranty intact though
