  • New Race Exhaust From Tms?

    any1 no the main differences between the standard milltek and the new tms race exhaust.

    1. i believe its still milltek just a bigger (3" or 76mm)
    2. and it has no back box just a straight thru pipe

    thats all i "know" but it may be wrong....any1 got any more details?

    I've only seen the pre-production system fitted on Daz's car but it is a Milltek, complete system in a 3" Bore.
    It did have a back box but I'm not certain whether the VXRR version will be Resonated or Not.
    Sounds much deeper than any current exhaust system and produced improvements to the power and torque curves on Daz's car over the standard turbo back system.
    Will also come with the tailpipe finished in Powder Coated Black.

                Might need to upgrade the 10 to a 12

                Seriously though, wanna know how your placed for tracks, I know the remus can't be used on certain tracks due to the noise - would be interested to see how the milltek compares

                  Its also the road id be worried about as the police can make you put it back to standard as its an aftermarket and there is a section of the law that they can use and take you to court if your car is louder than it was when it left the factory!

                  Ive been through the courts with my last one but couldnt fight it as it was a magnex and they would not take anything to do with the case.

                  Ive a remus now which i bought from vx so i havent been stopped with it touch wood!

                    There will be two versions. First a 3" bore with rear silencer and black chrome tip (which is fitted as standard to the VXR-S and VXR-R). There will also be a non cost option of the full race system which is stright through from centre silencer back (ie small centre resonator but no rear box at all) - this is what the race car runs.

                    As for noise the one with the rear silencer is good for all UK tracks as its been tested to maximum of 93db, the race version is 98db so good for all UK tracks (some question marks over the noise sensitive ones such as Goodwood), but it passed Bedford (evil Bazi noise police there) with ease.

                    If you want pops and bangs (and I mean you really want them) then the race system will set the hairs on the back of your neck on end, when driving it on the road you find yourself deliberately lifting off at high rpm just to hear it - juvenile I know but bl0ody funny

                              If i wanted to upgrade from my current milltek, would it be mean changing the whole exhaust system or just replace certain sections???

                              what gains are there to be had over the usual milltek system?
