vibrio,
u have 2 go back every year anyway 2 have a checkup 2 keep your guarantee valid and if you've paid 200-400 ,i think its worth a trip 2 sort it out.
if u bought anything with a guarentee and it broke within that time wud u not take it back?

If you're after a power increase, here's my example of my old powerflow exhaust.

Setting up my car on the rollers, exhaust seems a bit restrictive, so take out the smallest silencer and put a straight thru pipe in....ohh look 9bhp increase. Now this wasn't even a large box, it was the size of a bean can so I dread to think how much loss ya get from a big box.
