Do it yourself its not that hard. Buy the tubes, bends and boxes and DIY.
Only consider Powerflow if you are absolutely feckin minted. They make out their stuff is cheap, yep the parts are cheap but they mostly charge about £100 an hour. Most systems take 3.5+ hours to make.
In plain English it will rarely be cheaper than £400.
Buy an aftermarket one and fit it yourself.

I have just booked my Mk2 punto in for a custom made exhaust at powerflow. They approximate £170 for a twin 3" round s/s back box. I know of several people who have had a powerflow exhaust system and have had no complaints as yet. Go for it

If you only want a back box to make your car sound more powerful instead of actually being more powerful you could contact www.essesxracing.co.uk and buy a Rage back box from them, for about £40 they'll fit it too.

Forty pound for a back box? That wont last two minutes, get it done properly. For the previous message mate i have a 2002 active sport as well. If i interpreted wot you said correctly, i have been told the exhaust in the middle of the bumper wont be possible until you remove the spare wheel wheel, which unfortunately means invalidating your existing warranties, unless you have a kind considerate dealership. Let us know how u got on

I got an exact fit 4" round single exit back box for my punto GT. Made to fit. Cost £165 to buy and £20 to fit. Took less than an hour to fit. No need to touch rear bumper. Looks sweet. Tidy sound when driving. Not loud, sounds perfect with a DV and you are not at the level of nova boys.

I thought about powerflow £270 fitted for same thing! Too much for me.

for d back section and didnt have to loose spare tyre although the poxy thing is useless.if u get it at powerflow
its tempting to say u want it loud but its a pain in the arse in the long run coz motorway journeys require a packet of paracetamol plus ur girl friend will h8 it. go for sporty sound its quiet till u put foot down.

[^][^][^]the best exhaust advice around for a mk one punto is get a full stainless system PECO BOXER BIG BORE TWO as it gets the airflow out therefore extra horses and sounds great also you get a lifetime guarantee. they are made right here in liverpool but are well known and demon tweeks, merseyspeed, ripspeed stock em! so wot r u waiting for:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

My local Powerflow dealer is Top Gear in Burnley. They are a really good set of lads, well into their cars. I went with my mate while he had his done and the job they did was first class.

He drives a Rover (old mans car, dont tell him i said that!!) and they fitted a decat pipe, 3" stainless steel exhaust system with two 4" pipes out the back for around £300. The quality of the workmanship was excellent and it guaranteed for life. They didnt like the route of the original system as it was restrictive so they moved the system into the best possible postion. I've got a stainless steel back box on my mk2 and its s**te compared to the fact that you can custom design where the tailpipes exit from and what pipes come out. Well worth the extra money, plus if you only want a back box, they'll fit that and you can choose your tail pipes for £165.
