1.2 EXHAUST SYSTEM HELP

BOOers

I am after a stainless centre & rear exhaust for my 1.2 Bravo. Looking for something that is going to give it a bit more power but doesn't sound chavishly loud!

All i have been able to find is this.

http://www.motorspeed.com/store_main...roduct_id=1653

Any advice or links to sites etc would be appreciated.

Cheers,

James.

Re: 1.2 EXHAUST SYSTEM HELP

sportex is going to be the cheapest aftermarket , exhaust and it doesn't have to be the dtm style shown you can choose different tailpieces, there not to bad either

try gazella racing they got loads of stuff

or there is euro performance

Re: 1.2 EXHAUST SYSTEM HELP

Thanks a lot for the response Ant.

Im fairly new to the world of modding so was wondering if there's any exhausts that stand out from the rest or ones that i should avoid?
Also wondering what sort of price i should be paying for someone to fit it?

Cheers mate.

Re: 1.2 EXHAUST SYSTEM HELP

where u based, there is a few what will make it to ur spec, ie blueflame, powerflow, there based all over the country,

im from wigan and i always use dan mar in orrell, prices vary from 300+

for instance you can tell them u want it to sound like a subaru an they will get it as near as they can or u want it to sound standard but with bhp gains

Re: 1.2 EXHAUST SYSTEM HELP

I'm just outside Oxford but not too fussed about travelling to get the job done.

Im thinking of getting a twin exhaust but with single pipes split each side, would something like that be covered in the 300 or would it be much more?

Yeah im looking for something with better bhp gains firstly and then a tasteful tone

Cheers.

Re: 1.2 EXHAUST SYSTEM HELP

James,

you'll only waste time and money on a 1.2 buy changing the centre pipes. A full 4 branch manifold will gain most improvement as will removel of the cat, but thus not advised for MOT reasons(+ if you can get one too). A universal backbox is your best bet for sporty sounds and looks, but you'll not gain any power increases on a 1.2.
fit a k&n panel filter, and do a direct air feed from front bumper (ram air) and that'll gain you a couple bhp, but thats all. An ecu remap will prove slight more bhp results.

Re: 1.2 EXHAUST SYSTEM HELP

for non chavvy sound forget the sportex, its like a drain pipe and noise maker only, plus the quality of their kit is not really all that good either.

Personal preference was the Ragazzon system for me (had a 1.2 for 4 years) they are pricey, but they have a really nice exhaust note (raspy with a bit of a burble, but nothing ott is any way) and also, the quality of the kit was superb!

if you manage to get your mits on a supersprint manifold (the Punto ones dont fit) you will be one of the lucky ones, i looked high and low for 3 years and never found one at all...

Re: 1.2 EXHAUST SYSTEM HELP

Cheers for all your feedback guys, it's helped a lot. Ive managed to narrow it down a bit now so should have something sorted soon.

Was also wondering what people thought of the Colombo & Bariani Performance cams? Are there significant bhp gains with them?

Re: 1.2 EXHAUST SYSTEM HELP

i have group n rally cams in my hgt with a ecu remap from abarth italy , it was done through a company called avanti motorsport.

c&b cams will be good but you will have get a piggyback ecu

there will be good bhp gains ,
