      Hey so I've decided I'm going with a Miltek Cat Back Exhaust from a place called City Performance in North Sydney.. They have an amazing reputation and have done cars such as the Twin Turbo R32.. Which has an R36 motor in it and it's pushing 650bhp ++ at the wheels... Amazing car!! 3secs to 100kph.. But nonetheless; I've seen they're work and have a lot of trust in their doings..

      The guy who runs it recomends to go resonated as non-resonated is for teenagers who just want to be earth shatteringly loud...

      So what I haven't decided on is whether to go resonated or non-resonated..

      Apparently resonated will be about 30% louder but non-resonated will be insanely loud..

      Would love to hear some feedback !!

      Not sure which to go for....

      im no teenager but i love my cars loud. honestly if u dont like the loud exhaust, go with the resonated.. in the future if u decide it isnt loud enough.. just take that resonated exhaust to a exhaust shop and tell them to do a resonator delete..

      Mine's actually the resonated one. If I had my choice again, I'd probably get it non-resonated. It's not loud enough :\

      Must admit - those scorpion exhausts look pretty tasty.

      go nonresonated, it's still quiet. Milltek doesn't make loud systems.

      I think we are! We should get everyone together to do a cruise!! MaXius is over in Melbourne so it's just us 3 on here!

      Scorpion exhausts???

      Are you located in Sydney?

      What can you tell me about the noise? As a stock car; it's a very muffled noise so I imagine it would unblock that muffled noise.. However I want it to be unblocked and I also want it to be louder.. My question is; how much louder are we talking!! But thinking about it I am leaning more towards the non-resonated.. It's also $200 cheaper apparently.. hahah.

      Interesting to hear... I worked it out yesterday roughly; if it's 30-40% louder it means it'll only be 2-3db's louder.. Thats not much at all..

      Good choice for getting the non-resonated. You won't regret it!

      I'd love to see a dyno before and after. I am VERY skeptical about any performance increase in this system.

      Hi Sentari,

      If you go over to this thread - http://forums.fourtitude.com/showthr...RS-on-the-dyno! - you'll see a link to a dyno plot - http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/6169/dynow.jpg ... After I had my original stage 1 tune (Which nett'd only 10kw extra power), I fitted the milltek, which released another 12kw.

      Cheers,

      Well that was unexpected... I didn't think it would have done anything.. Can you feel any power increase??

      I am only doing it because I want it to be louder haha

      If you're in Sydney man we should catch up and see how it sounds between resonated and non-resonated!!

      Well that's good news. I had bought a Miltech, but decided to skip it for a custom made complete solution from HPA. I assure you, the Miltech was less expensive! But i'm reaching for 475 HP/500 TQ... So I must make sure this beast can exhale properly.

      Too be honest - I'm not sure if you would get that gain on a standard car (without a tune)... Couldn't really feel any difference - just marginally louder.

      Nahh - I'm down in Melb... If you're ever down this way - let me know - will let you see what a tuned one feels like. It's night and day between the two.

      Got the Miltek Non-Resonated Cat-Back on Monday night.. Sounds really good, very meaty, probably about 25% louder (not as loud as I thought it would be unfortunately). There's no drone, I think a SLIGHT power increase very down low.. Feels torquier and up high it sounds better as well. Overall very happy with it! Went for a great drive through the national park for the day yesterday..

      Now... City Performance Centre.. THE professionals. I'm extremely happy with their service, the quality of work and the knowledge they possess. I can recommend them to anyone looking to do anything from the smallest of jobs to the extreme; Sam (who I dealt with) was fantastic. I couldn't be happier and I will keep going back.

      Job well done!

      Is it worth it to not order the exhaust package and throw on the miltek catback?

      In Aus we don't get the sports exhaust ( ).

      I've got the miltek now and as it's wearing in it's sounding better and better.. Money well spent, although I was hoping it would be louder.. My only option next is to do a full turbo-back.. Except to do that I need a tune, and that voids warranty.... This is what I'm contemplating at the moment....

      The guy who runs it recomends to go resonated as non-resonated is for teenagers who just want to be earth shatteringly loud...

      So what I haven't decided on is whether to go resonated or non-resonated..

      Apparently resonated will be about 30% louder but non-resonated will be insanely loud..

      Would love to hear some feedback !!

      Not sure which to go for....
      The race system is the only way to go.

      I wish I could make my exhaust quieter.
