    Default 3.2 V6 GSI exhaust...

    I have a 3.2 V6 GSI that has corroding back boxes. I want to replace them with a stainless steel exhaust. Probably a Cat back system, due to price.

    I don't want anything particularly loud or big. A resonably standard look would be good.

    Any suggestions near Manchester that would make and fit it?

    I tried powerflow for my 2.0t siggy, s/s cat back with twin tail pipes £295. I reckon theres a powerflow or similar trader near you.

    Remember that although your back boxes look rusty they actually are double skinned so the in side is generally ok.

    Cheers for replies. The outer skins have already rusted and fallen off. I've also performed 3 repairs on the pipes, so I think it's time to change :-)

    I'm going to get mine done reasonably soon too, if all goes to plan. I like the look of the Scorpion system but am likely to go for an MIJ Performance system in the end. But I am watching this thread with interest. :-) Paul

    For me, a Scorpion system (watching one on eBay) would be £500 supply only. MIJ Performance want about £425 fitted. :-D Assuming quality is equivalent, that has to be a better option for my purposes. I'd struggle to get my car high enough to fit a system anyway. ;-) Paul

    So, Scorpion seems to be a common theme. Any decent fitters around the Manchester area that anyone has used?
