Hi guys,

I need a little advise..

I've got a milltek exhaust from a type r fitted to my 2.2 diesel.

The exhaust hangs a little low for my liking and due to being lowered on collies the exhaust catches on speed humps.

As a result of this, I have a flat area on part of the exhaust which I want to get fixed.

What i need to know is, can I get a custom exhaust place to cut and renew the flat part with stainless steel piping and also modify the exhaust to sit better in the channels?

Or would I be better off getting a new exhaust?

Thanks!

get it cut out and weld a piece of pipe in
Would it reduce the performance of the exhaust if I get another piece of stainless steel pipe welded in of the same diametre as the existing pipework?

is the flat bit affecting anything? why not try bending the hangers a bit to cause the exhaust to sit a bit higher under the car? or get shorter exhaust rubbers
cheaper fix that getting exhaust cut and shut.

Get a new exhaust and give this one to me.... But more seriously look at how it hangs and see if you can take it up anywhere you'd be amazed at what a couple of jubilee clips can often do. For a little flat spot i probably wouldnt have thought it would make much difference as it should be flowing more free than oem unit anyway... Sure someone will correct me if I am wrong...

Thanks for the advice all.

I dont think shorter exhaust hangers will do the trick because where the top of the exhaust is (engine side) the exhaust pipe is at a fixed angle and there is no movement.

Its hard to describe lol and I dont have a picture at the moment but I think the only option is to get it modified or raise the ride height hehe

hehe true true "if you don't ask you don't get!" :cool:

The milltek on a diesel is really subtle in comparison to if it was on a type r.

Cruising theres no noticeable noise difference but once you get into the revs there is a subtle note but not as much as the martelius exhaust.

If it's noise you want then martelius is the one :D

The flexpipe off the cat is more flexible than you'd think, the first hanger on the exhaust is the one that will bring the pipe up making it 'tuck' into the cavity better

you need to bend (slightly) the first hanger higher up and this will raise the rubber mounts :)

good luck pal



Lee, you had it fitted yet !?

we need a national derv meet ;) hehehe

never asked mate is it res or non res? mine has no centre box and if its not loud enough im taking the rear box out completely ;)
My one is the non res but its not loud at all. Theres a slight noise at full chat but nothing like the matellieus exhaust.

Would be interesting to hear how loud yours will be without the rear box :cool:
