Looks great! Post up the video if you have it, I would love to hear how it sounds. Couldn't find it on facebook (havent got facebook)

For selling your used cats, give these guys a ring. If I remember correctly they gave me £127 each!

If you get rid of the nagging FB pop-ups (the ones that try to coerce you into registering) and keep scrolling down, it's still there, around 20th September.

This is a direct link to it on FB (I think).

Also, I've managed to download the video from the FB page (attached).

Thanks! It sounds great!
Maybe with no crossover it sounds different than with a H or X.

Interesting - do you reckon this could be added to the custom system to reduce the noise?

A crossover pipe and a centre silencer with some wadding in it will make a fair bit of difference

I recently had my exhaust done. Both cats had failed and I could not find any anywhere to replace them with. I used a firm in High Wycombe called Style Dynamics (who do have a website and a phone line thankfully!) I had both cats cut out, replaced with sports cats and new piped down to the start of the Miltek system. They charged £850 (but remember this wasn’t a full system) and they were an absolute joy to deal with. The result is fantastic. Noise is as it was when it left the factory with the added Miltek growl. Very good service and very solid outcome. Can’t recommend them enough.
