    Need a new backbox is there anything wrong with powerflow as the price seems quite good in comparison.

    i had one on my old vec b gsi, and loved the look and sound from it. my only complaint would be the welding job wasnt that great on it, whether that was to do with powerflow or the fitters i dont know, as it was on it when i bought it

    I had a cat back powerflow on a 1.6 focus with a subtle oval tip - sounded gorgeous, really nice sporty tone without the sh**y drone you get from halfords back boxes on Novas




    Also, had a not so subtle powerflow system on my Accord Type-R (Favourite car ever...)

    Decat, then stainless system back out of 2 backboxes and one silencer before it split = one hell of a noise.

    To answer your question, they are great, but it totally depends on who fits it. I got mine dirt cheap, £40 for the focus and £110 fitted on the Accord - Bargain hunter!

    agreed, the powerflow places are agents or even possibly franchises, not sure how it works.. But these places that list themselves as Powerflow exhaust centres can vary as can their workmanship.. their parts are good but be sure your local powerflow place has a good rep..

    Yep - Guess they just get a selection of cans and piping etc from powerflow then up to them to add te bends and joins etc.

    Mine had a slight blow on the focus had to get it resealed on one of the joins when it was first fitted

    I have had two powerflow systems, one good, one I sued them and got my money back for. The powerflow parts are good but they just sell them to third parties to fit and take vey little interest in what those parties do with the stuff.
