Who makes exhausts around here?

Postby Globbits » Mon Oct 29, 2012 3:30 pm

Myrtle's going to need a stainless exhaust system made up for her and it would appear that actually making an exhaust from scratch seems to be a dying art :(

Anyone know of any companies still able to make them? I don't mind traveling, but it needs to be worth it

Ooo - nice one!
Had found .com and .co.uk, but hadn't noticed the .net version. Have you any experience with them, or just done some Googlage?

Thanks buddy. Am putting in an enquiry now. Can't imagine a twin-exhaust system's going to be pennies whoever makes it :(

just emailed my next eldest brother, he is into drifting and tweaking motors
and constructing bespoke motored vehicles so if anyone will know it should be him.

I was thinking you weren't gonna pop down pat williams and pick up an Xhaust for the beast just off the shelf.

Yeah, apparently they don't stock one for that combination :cry:
Been speaking with a fella in London who's already done the conversion (but on an auto - that must be fun!) and his twin-exhaust setup cost.....
.....
.........
£1650! :shock: :o :shock: :shock: :shock:

Oh yes (or it will be)
And it's not like I want the exhaust made out of platinum or anything :(

Save on tyre in barnstaple or any powerflow stockist nearer you.


I make my own from mandrel bends but they are not cheap, I made the 2" delica one with a few scrap bits from Save on Tyres bin and a large stainless straight through box.

Pretty growly but not excessive, cost me about £40 all in and an hour to blob it together.
