    I kept my 2.5” scorpion system and it’s great. Scorpion downpipe and custom linkpipe. Made 271bhp so no restriction issues

    Want to go for a consistent 3” mate as I’m not keen on a bottleneck within the system. It also means that if I did want to go down the forged route later on I’m future proofed.

    3D printed spacer for the boot mounted aerocatches.

    Fair point. It’s almost a grand for the Scorpion 3” system which put me off!

    It puts me off too mate lol. Think I’m going to go for the PMS system as there is apparently a 6 week wait for the scorpion.

    I'll give them a call tomorrow. Theres a place near me who do custom systems in 304 stainless it's getting it there thats the pain at the moment. I've just bought a brand new X3 and it doesn't have a tow bar! More expense!!

    Don’t see many cars with custom exhausts. Would be interested to see how much you get quoted

    Powerflow used to be a name going back a bit. Don’t know if they’re still going

    I have been looking at this myself I’m at the point where I need to decide, I live close to MIJ in walsall and they did a very good job on a friends 325 track car keeping it track friendly. I have already bought a downpipe though as it looked a pig to do whilst the engine is in ‍♂️

    The company I’m calling are a dealer of Powerflow. There’s also Longlife just up the road in Birmingham.

    Worth trying Torque Flow in Brum also mate, they do all the exhausts for MSL (they are owned by the same owner IIRC).

    Small update. Called the local shop today and I'm going to take it down to them to have a full custom system made. I've also purchased a 3" downpipe and link pipe and they will work back from that.

    I will have them mounted on the weekend so you can see how they turn out. Initial fitment is perfect.
