custom exhaust

Can anyone give some feedback on custom exhausts? i don't like the double one sided exhaust thats on the 2.8i and don't see any aftermarket options. Thinking about going custom but main concern will be the loss in pwr/ tq and it will need a tune. I don't know any of the local shops that can do this.

If you have patience, time and find a good shop in terms of materials and finish.... go for custom... Do not worry about power/torque loss, turbo engines only gain if "opened", since don't need back pressure, tuned or not.

Hi, the CV3s are a bit heavy but i love them.... Mine are 20x9 and 20x10.5 and look a bit exagerated on the rear. For sure are headturners when i driving around ... But I guess that BBS will be a better choice in terms of performance. For what concern the size... A good balance between esthetic and functionality is 9 et 35 front and 10 et 40 rear. 245/30 front, 285/25 rear or something like that. Ciao!

Running on customs now. Almost a straight pipe after the cat. Sounds amazing. Did a piggyback tuning after, no loss in power and torque.

Did 335bhp,470bm on crank. Not sure if it's accurate but car definitely feels more responsive after.

Think i have the dyno sheet somewhere in my mod diary hahaah. Will dig it up and post it here.

Gots the sound clip of me exhaust too!

Not completely happy with the results. Probably i'll try some HIDs.
