    Default 3.2 V6 Elite Exhaust

    I think i might need to get a couple of back boxes for my 3.2 V6 Elite.

    Should I go for standard or performance?

    I do a lot of miles so do not want to get a loud exhaust. Also I dont want to cut the bumper so can I get performance boxes that still point down?

    I live in hampshire so any dealers for any performance options?

    How much are back boxes?

    As you have an Elite bumper, you'll need to change it for the SRi one with the relevant insert. Other option is to cut the existing bumper.

    I`m going to put some tips on my Vec soon, and I`m planning to mod the skirt to show them around, may be not the fancy option but do to the lack of mods around here it`s may only way out.

    I had 2 of these from my Elite taken off when my Milltek was fitted, they ended up in the skip as it was way too big and dirty to get home! I bet it costs a bomb to replace them with VX parts.

    To use Sports (Sri style) pipes i will need a new bumper.
    So i need to get the standard.

    Also will painting the exhuast in high temp paint make it last longer?

    Does anyone know anywhere that makes customer stainless backboxes? I have seen one place on the south coast that would charge about £100 per backbox. Custom made to my car.

    Does anyone know of similar companies?
