Dont bother mate unless you can see their work first hand as most powerfows are fanchises so quality varies.

Also i would say the majority of them use poor grade stainless unless you specify you want t304.

IMO get an off the shelf item from the likes of Magnex/Scorpion or Jetec as they have been desinged and tested for your car. Fit and quality will superior to ANY custom jobbie unless it was a BTB or Tony Law.

In my experience I had a poweflow decat made up and it was absolute pelt and rusted in no time..took it to another powerflow dealer and they just botched it some more...Ive got lots of mates who have done this route and regret it every day

Oh Rite. Anybody except Rob had a good experience with them? They offer a Guarantee for the lifetime of the Car so what's the problem there?
I'm already aware of the Grade of metal issue. I'd bring that up for Certain

I always thought they were good quality systems? The dubbers seem to rate them on ClubPolo...

Other choice was the Sebring CAT back system like Dna23 has on his car. Don't know where to get that though, And I don't want a loud exhaust.

Not trying to start an argument mate, but You ask CS for advise on exhausts, someone mentions Powerflow and instantly, because of a couple of the stories you've heard on here, you instantly reject them

I have a Powerflow straight through system fitted to my car and it looks and sounds the dogs!!!

Don't disregard something just because of a couple of rumours

It shouldn't be so, but depending on which one you go to depends on the quality

Powerflow ROCK!!!!

longlife exhausts are a good bet though, same idear as powerflow but better

and you need a full system to get a few extra bhp

adge you forgot to mention its blueflame also.


powerflow are shite phil mate sorry, used to have one myself.


sebring/magnex are generally best back boxes imo, and blueflame are certainly unbeatable when it comes to full custom systems

I think I'm qualified to slate Powerflow!

http://alcoholic.custard.org/exhaust/

That's after just nine months on the car, the lifetime guarantee means nothing (they will only do anything with the exhaust if the rust eats all the way through the metal), the garage refused to fix it, and I lost 450 as a result...

Don't go Powerflow......Blue Flame, however, I have heard very good reports about, and a mate swears by them as they did him a nice custom t304 jobby on his GTi-R.
