  • Milltek Help

    I want to fit the Full Milltek system but funds are tight due to final payment for holidays.

    If I go for the Cat back option, would this give me any improvement in power and give me that Millteck exhaust note, or should I wait and save for the full job???

    What should I expect to pay as I here prices vary

    Or is there an alternative

    Thanks All

      If funds are low at min do it in parts the Turbo Downpipe £240.00 first helps a lot then Cat Back System £425.00 then the cat. also the only bit of the exhaust thats VXR is the back box the rest is same as mk 4 astra turbo so you can get a Turbo Downpipe for £150 if you dont mind the make.

          If funds are low - try Magnex or Scorpion...both do decent systems for the VXR
          tuner talk: "Just get out and drive the damn things !!!"
          The truth is out there ...

            Im in the same dilema mate! I just fitted c/s turbo downpipe and what a difference just that alone makes! I even occasionaly get a pop or bang from the car now which is nice! Very race car like! The c/s downpipe was £190 delivered!

              Does the CAT back system have the jet fighter sound I've seen on Youtube under accelration?
              I have a difference of opinion to you.

                    Yeah i had the same problem with money issues so i decided to save up for the full system and stage 2 remap. Should have it done in a month or 2 [-o<

                        not that i have either of these systems but if you are limiting your mods to just an exhaust then try a magnex !

                        according to magnex when dynod it achieved a similar power figure to the full miltek at half the price :wink:

                        regal also use the magnex on their stage 2 so it must do the job

                          Milltek might sound better though. Any 1 know how often the milltek backfires with stage 2 remap??? If it does it every time you lift the throttle or just occasionally???

                            with stage 3 it's popping all the time when cold but not too bad when hot just every now and then sounds great though

                              News Flash
                              I have just been into Courtenay web site only to find that Milltek have now released a system like the magnex.
                              It still uses the main CAT.
                              £599 thats cheeper than the Magnex unless you go on EBay as you can get the full Magnex for £567 delivered!!!!!!!!

                              PS Still can't make my mind up either.
