New exhaust for S2

Postby Braxted » Tue 24.07.2018, 19:21

I might be buying a 1994 S2 which needs a new exhaust, can anybody recommend a decent stainless steel exhaust?????

Plenty of people on here have them. If you are going to go on the well trodden upgrade path (with other work like chip/wastegate/brakes) then you can get a Piper or Peco (Cybox) 2.25" or 2.5" system. You might choose to also put in a pre-cat eliminator (which is basically the same shape as the original pre-cat bit with no innards) and you can replace the main catalyst with a sports cat. All of which might make MOT testing a bit marginal and they can be louder particularly the 2.5. If you want to stay standard then fit a 2 inch system with both pre-cat and main cat in place - in which case SJ Sportscars can sell you what you need in SS or mild.

Good luck...

I can thoroughly recommend the Piper system. Also the Cybox, and its precursor, the Peco (no longer available but essentially rebranded as the Cybox)

If you are averse to too much noise then you can get an additional silencer

Please be aware that an enlarged exhaust bore might cause boost creep though, so you might need to port the wastegate.

Any update, OP? Cybox gets my vote. It is a nice-sounding exhaust.
