Has anyone fitted slightly larger exhaust trims?
<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />
I really like the look of the rear and have removed the Kuga and TDCI badges but think it could do with tad larger trims just to fill up the gaps as they look like pea-shooters at the mo.

Thanks

Thanks, I'll take a look. I've seen exhaust trims for £195!!! (surely it must be the complete back box!) or for £7, so there doesn't look to be anything in between.

As it happens I also thought they looked a bit like peashooters so mine went from this.....






to this.....................







I had them done by a 'Powerflow' exhaust specialist and he cut the existing trims off and these were welded on in their place. They had about 100+ trims to pick from but these had the perfect step up from the existing pipe and were the size and type that I was after.



The guy did an awesome job and they took about 40 mins to fit (with lots of lining up)



Cost me £40 :)

I assumed the old ones are just clamped on and therefore could clamp on some new bigger ones.

If not will look at having some welded on like you've done.

Anyone thought about a bespoke exhaust system yet. Here's a link to a small firm up here though there are sure to be many more such outfits down South. For what I believe is not a fortune they will take the car, measure evrything up, make the system to your own visual spec and fit it in one day with a lifetime guarantee on the entire system.


I tend to keep cars for ever so I was thinking that when it needs its first repair, I'd take it up there and see if they can be a bit imaginative with it...like twin smaller bore pipes each side or two semi-circular pipes fitted together in each round bumper slot that together completely fill it (leaving 'bounce' room) - side by side or over and under style. They even do 'letterbox' and triangular back pipes too.

Can't wait for a box start blowing!!!


Back to work.

Old ones were pressure fit and welded - hence the need to cut them off.


As for powerflow - they are a performance exhaust manufacturer and do custom exhausts - they have powerflow specialists throughout the country and you basically take your car in and they build you an exhaust. I just wanted the trims and my local dealer was happy to help out

Thanks for that.



While you were replying I did a Google and lo and behold the firm I put the link up for is a Powerfllow dealer - Whata range! - Bingo. I like the tail pipes that are black with the S/S outer edge - SOLD. Now where is that blow coming from..........?

They'll take off as much as you want them to then replace it with stainless throughout. I think they do a fair bit of performance stuff too though I would simply want to replace the standard carbon with S/S.

Sounds good, may go for the trims in the summer as there is a dealer near my parents.


Nubby - did they take the exhaust off to fit these and which end pieces are they as their site has loads...



Looks really good.

Nope just got a plasma cutter and sliced through the end pieces. Took about 30 seconds each side.


It was quite scary to watch my pride and joy being 'chopped'



Not sure which tail pipes they are - I just had a rummage around the shelves in the guys workshop until I found something that I fancied and that was compatible

You either need to disconnect the battery or you can put module on the batter to protect it like we do here.

Nice thread bump from 2009?
