Fn2 miltek exhaust fitment and hangers

Hey

I have decided to take the plunge and get a miltek non res for my fn2 2011

Reading on here (as you do) i have seen a few threads re: vibration due to alignment of exhaust triangles. I am getting it fitted and i thought i would cover this off pre-emptively with new exhaust rubbers

I have seen the mention of ford escort rubbers or the powerflex exh011 rubbers which seem to do the job. I have just been out to the car yo have a quick look and the thing confusing me is that the rear muffler rubbers have hanger holes at 90degrees to one another (i.e car side hanger hole is perpendicular to the exhaust side hanger hole!)

All the pics of the exhaust rubbers show the holes all on the same face (paralell)

I might be being really stupid here, but am i missing something?

Looking forward the the car sounding as it should!

Will

Just get your fitter to make sure the exhaust tips are centered and don't touch the triangles. I got a local exhaust centre to do it and they did a great job, the guy told me he adjusted the tips to fit without me saying anything in advance.

+1

I got a mechanic to fit it and he knew that it was worth the extra 10 minutes after fitment perfecting the alignment near the triangles.

So no new mounts needed, no harm taking them with you in case original ones knackered from high mileage though.

+2...any decent mechanic will adjust both sides so no buzzing...having said that,i was driving out of the car park and had to take it back as one side was buzzing..tom blamed it one leo,who blamed it on pauley ...less than a minute and job done,hanger seemed ok on mine,but as lee said,could take them anyway...youll love the milli sound aswell

As oposed to this

MS42 Cerbera exhaust rubbers x 1 - ACT Performance Products - your source for after market TVR upgrades, components and performance accessories.

So the 2 holes are not on the same axis??? - so im not sure how the universal powerflex ones would work

I think i have figured it out

I was looking at those marked 6 on this diagram. When i assume others are talking about those marked 7.

Honda Car and Auto Parts | Honda CIVIC | EXHAUST PIPE/SILENCER (2.0L) | Genuine Honda Parts | Honda Cars | Honda Motorcycles | Honda Power Products | Lings Honda Car Parts Selection

Thanks for the help, will buy a couple of the powerflex ones for the rear tail pipes

Dunno bud, I just took the exhaust in and they fitted it. An exhaust centre will have everything they need

So the exhaust is good (quieter than i imagine in the car) but maybe it sounds loud outside.

Pipes were in the centre but it rattled a bit on corners with standard mounts, so i trimmed the inside of the exhaust triangles and the problem is gone.

Garage tried the powerflex mounts but said they were way too small (holes) so didnt want to damage the exhaust hangers or drill out the new ones.

Did other people just force them on? Or use grease?

Mate it to an induction kit and allow it to settle. It gets deeper over time
