Good point, But it is old exhaust, and its only rusting which the pipe joins.

yeah its varied altho i belive custm exhausts are jst as bad as peco IMO they all use the same boxes (e.g powerflow, longlife etc) and i have seen better fitments and welding by monkeys and unless u specify and pay more u get a poor grade of stainless steel.

Proper manufacturers of exhausts use defferent size boxes bores etc etc, not jst whack on a stadardised box they mass bought and use for any car that comes in and make it fit just like powerflow and other varients of e custom exhaust fitters do.

save up and get something decent thats not goin to rust and not fall off i/e a decent manufacturer like magnex, scrorpion. mongoose and jetex and these will have a better quality sound about them too.

I used to have a Peco BB2 on my corsa...

was an ok box IMO, lasted a good few years & also looked quite subtle as the bodywork was fairly standard (except for being debadged)

Only problem with Peco I think is there fitment as standard, as they come out at an angle, but if your skilled enough, the pipe can be bent a bit more & you can get it out straight!

just check the welds where the tail pipes join the box and the main system under the car its apallling some of the pics i seen.

had my magnex on my car four years and it does the job nicely and sounds superb and its also copping with the 2ltr just fine
