    Right then, along the same lines...............................


    I need a new zorst for my P38, the centre box has given up an the MoT man will be castin his beady eye over it soon. I want to go stainless but with a nice sound that doesn't make day to day use require ear plugs. I want to hear the burble but not go deff!!


    I have seen Janspeed Cat back and also Double S exhausts for sale at similar prices. Can anyone recommend or NOT these systems, based on how they are to live with. Tis a lot of brass to fork out for something that may not be right.

    Not used those before so can't help I am afraid. I would say though that the Rimmer Bros stainless exhausts are a waste of time. A lot of money for something that is "stainless" yet the stainless part doesn't last very long at all!

    Cool 101 :)
