Do we get any discount on piper exhaust ?

Postby DavieBow » Sun 11.06.2017, 17:57

Does anyone know if we get any forum membership discount from piper on their exhaust systems , just about to purchase their downpipe and exhaust but at the best part of £1k it would be nice if i could get a little off the price first .

cheers

We don't have any discount on the Piper exhausts like we did when Geoff got us a good deal on the PECO group buy. But you could always phone them and ask for a discount :wink:

I have had 3 systems (ie PECO, Cybox and Piper) on 3 different M100s and think that Piper is the best for engineering, fit, noise etc.. It is the dearest of the 3 of the systems but worth it in my opinion.

By the way, where do you get the "best part of £1K" from ? Are you factoring in the turbo downpipe with ceramic coating ?

I've got an SE but was gonna go for the whole system from the turbo back so thought i'd need the turbo down pipe(£320 -£450) as well as the 2.5" system (£580) .

I've got a mountain chip in it plus gonna get the turbo re-conned and waste gate ported, so with all that in mind i thought it best to go for the whole system to get maximum benefits, is that not the case ?

You will most likely need the waste gate ported as you have the Everest Chip and are going for the 2.5" system. Not sure if you'll need your turbo reconditioned though. Is it working OK now or do you have problems ?

The turbo is fine as far as i know , but i'm doing a full strip down / detail and nut and bolt rebuild anyway , so stuff like that i just think you may as well do anyway as i'm going to that level , i know some may see it as a waste of money and if it ain't broke don't fix it , but i do this kinda thing anyway , both professionally and personally , so just for my own piece of mind i'll know that i put it all back together the best it possibly could be .

I've got the Piper downpipe I believe it was a group buy at the time, I also have the Everest chip and have ported the waste gate.

Nae probs ;-)

But have a look at HJ's post above. Looks like 21mm might be more suitable rather than the 20mm quoted on Wikilec ?????????
