Be very interested to know what he impact on power is from these. Exhausts are always a nice upgrade but at the expensive end of the mod market in my opinion and would be nice to know (apart from noise and aesthetic) what the potential gains are. That said it does look very well designed and the finish looks excellent.

It's a naturally aspirated motor so any power gains would be too small to notice.

People who claim 10bhp etc. From a cat back exhaust system on a naturally aspirated engine are the type to have a very active imagination.

Hi buddy,

I had too many 'sent items' so have had a bit of a clearout. If I didn't already answer please feel free to pop me another message.

In the end I have now a scorpion exhaust, had to buy the car to fit the exhaust lol .. Having sold my pre face lift for the 3.0si by chance saw the for sale add here for slightly used system.
Installed today, got the local exhaust centre to do it, they are powerflow specialists, as the nuts were completely rusted up. They charged me 2 hours but took 3, so pretty reasonable it seems.

Does feel to me to be more lively at the higher revs, just keeps going stronger. Not as loud as I was expecting, which is a good thing as the standard was a bit of a drone, this is better. Sound pretty good.
It took over a year but I got there :driving:

Excellent stuff! Glad you're enjoying it.

Im absolutely gutted Photobucket has started charging $400 per year for 3rd party image hosting :( all my images from this build and my Z4 build thread are now gone as a result.

Oh well. I'm sure the written reviews will help this product :)

If you install the firefox/chrome add ons then this gets around the problems with photobucket

Yeah, I added one of the chrome add ons but it's stopped working, and I was more thinking for other people who won't be able to have a read and view of my threads. :(

Hi Ben,

Hi Jack, the 2.0 exhaust is completely different so wouldn’t fit your car :(

Are there any videos available of this in operation ?

Wondering whether it’s worth the added cost over a DLV exhaust mod ?
