Exhaust

Post by Drew2k » Sat May 11, 2019 10:37 pm

Hi guys!!
I’ve recently installed a custom R32 style rear bumper to my Maxi.
Not sure what to do in terms of exhaust?
Would most people go for a custom Stainless Steel exhaust to replace the standard exhaust - so probably back box delete.
Or
Leave the standard exhaust in place and just install some “fake” tips in the bumper? Or is that a sh@t idea?

I was just thinking a lot of new cars you see these days have what look like fancy exhausts built in to the bumpers and then there is just a small exhaust pipe running up behind them?!

Hi mate, ive fitted the rear R32 bumper on a few vans now and when i had the 1.6 diesel engine i made a custom rear pipe out of 316 stainless with no back box. However ive since put an R32 engine in mine and now ive modified a Golf mk5 R32 Milltek catback system which works great. But if you have a diesel, just pipes with no box will work fine for you, some photos for youImageImage
And here are just the pipes on my diesel silver van.

Nice one Hef, thanks for your valued input!!
Would you poss’ have any shots of the under side of both your vans?
Obviously with the R32’d weapon and Miltec back box you must have had to remove spare wheel is it the same story with silver diesel?

Hey buddy, no probs my friend, i do have some photos somewhere on my pc i think. If not i’ll take some photos from underneath my silver Caddy. I removed the spare from both my friend. It’s a fairly easy job to fabricate twin pipes with spare removed! Leave this with me mate

How loud do you find the tdi engine with the black box delete and the custom r32 twin exhausts? Thinking about doing it to mine but not after a sound which is really in your face, going for a relatively subtle sound improvement

@Barrybooner the back box delete made hardly any difference in noise on my previous 1.6 but after it built up some carbon inside it developed a bit of a slight rasp which was quite nice. The silver van is a 2.0 litre and that is equally as quiet. Hope this helps

@hef355 - no worries. Thanks and I look forward to seeing your work in the pics!!
Do you think it’s possible to do the back box delete and leave the spare wheel underneath?
I’d had a price from a well respected exhaust builder near me in Leeds called Tony Banks of £329 for a back box delete or £429 for middle and back (whatever that means) this comes with a lifetime warranty. Does this sound reasonable and would you just go with back box delete? As not sure if it is something I could tackle myself? Not much cop with a welder?! 🥴 Pigeon pap springs to mind?! 😬 good to hear not much louder and like the sound of a little rasp note though!! 🤓 Thanks again fella!!

@barbel330 looks well fella. Is this just a back box delete? Did you tackle this yourself or where did you have it installed, prices etc?

It’s a custom cat back system hand made by EMP. It was £500+.

I’m removing the rear section very soon and may well sell it along with my rear bumper as it all fits together.

All i did mate was take the rear section including the back box off and fabricated a piece to join onto the existing mid exhaust. I have a mate with a superb pipe bender so found it quite easy removing the rear spare. It’s too tight in my opinion if you leave the spare in.

Mine looks pretty similar to what Stu’s done (Barbell330) but ive just used rolled chrome tips rather than posh Miltek type tips like Stu’s.

From what I can see Stu’s taken his spare out also. As far as prices go, I think over £300 is excessive for making the back piece in my opinion and I think closer to £200 to £250 would be more than enough as its a very simple job if you have the right bender and decent welding skills even in 316 stainless. When mine is on the ramp i’ll take loads of pics for you buddy ok

Great Hef thanks!!
Just a thought as I’ve seen the quality of the Caddy’s you put together, would you be interested/up for fabricating something for me if I came to you etc?! No worries at all if your too busy with your own bits and bobs tho’ pal. 👊

I’ll take a pic of what i’ve done for you buddy but I borrowed my mates bender to make mine and time is a bit tight at mo. However if you only want the back piece done i can ask Ryan my mate if he can make you one based on my rear piece pattern. I’ll have it up on the ramp in next couple if days so i’ll take a pic first ok fella. Where are you in the country?
