Just had a new custom made Power Flow exhaust fitted by the boys at Top Gear in Burnely. It only took 2 hours for them to make & fit. It's a Cat > back system. 2.5' with a Boxster tail pipe.

Check out the pic >>>>
:P

Here's the guys web site for some more examples

Nice one Jamie!

Would you mind if I asked how much it cost?

Yea! come on spill the beans how much? Is that a talladega?
perhaps I should look @ the investment for my GM900 or 99 that way Ageybaby in his Ruby won't be the only one running a decent sound around Exeter.

No probs. The car is a Saab 900 (1997) 5D Turbo Tal
, standard apart form the K&N & the exhaust.

The exhaust cost 299 (hand made & fitted) If the wife asks it cost 140 though !!

Just taken it for a quick spin up the local by pass and what a difference !! The turbo spins in a lot quicker & it's now wheel spinning in 3rd at 55mph.

Not sure how long my licence will remain clean.

I SO want to do that, as well. I got the Saab catalog, and they have custom exhausts you can buy (the tailpipe has the Saab logo on it). I think it was $350 + $abitmore for the tailpipe.

do you think wife would notice if i p/x'ed her car (GM900s 2.0) for something a little more sporty!

Talladega would be kinda ideal me thinks! lmao

Are you sure your car is a Talladega? It doesn't have the Talladega badge on the back, and it doesn't have painted bumper tops or black bumper trim strips. According to my Talladega brochure, they all have those things.

That exhaust system has impressed me.
these powerflow exhaust systems, is this part of a franchise thing I'm sure somewhere local to me is doing something similar.

Yup, Power Exhausts are a US company, Top Gear run the franchise over here in the UK. The best thing about these exhaust is that you can specify the finish, the tail pipe design 2'- bean tin size, DTM, Oval, twin exit etc.. and how it sounds. Check out thier web site to view a large selection of exhausts they have made from Audi's, BMW, Maserati, Saabs..., Below are the details for all of their garages.

Thanks Ageybaby, I may well take you up on that soon, I am having my car superchipped today :cheesy: so my car budjet will be all used up for a few weeks. But I will keep wacking the overtime in, then stainless exhaust and sports air filter are next on my list.
Have Exe Tyre and Exhaust got a website or catalouge I could order to drool over?
Cheers Rob
