Exhaust options?
Hey, guys!

Are there any cat-back exhaust options out there that might spice up the MC's exhaust note and possible find a hp two?

My bud has been talking about getting one for a while for his '07 MC so I thought I would go ahead and ask the question on his behalf.

you could get a JCW exaust, a magnaflow catback, a megan catback, a borla catback, or alta. they'll all give you hp increase but each one varies. if you're looking for a good PRICE for the product, aka best bang for your buck, though then go with the megan. im gonna get that for myself just cuz its the cheapest and it was a great gurgle/bubble sound with good performance too. its so british lol. and it looks great frmo any angle too. go look it up you might like it. here:

Not much out there for the R56 MC.

We were waiting about two years hopefully that MINI will produce a cat-back exhaust like the JCW Soundkit of the R50.

But there is still no solution :mad:

That's the reason for our trip on last friday.

A small factory in Germany (we are from Austria) made this stainless steel single-piece production.:thumbsup:
The exhaust tip is taken from the R56S JCW Kit :grin:

I think we are the first with an exhaust which looks like a JCW :grin:
We don't know any other.

I will try to do one this weekend.

The soundlevel is like the stock exhaust but it sounds better :) . Otherwise there would be no chance to legalize it in Austria :roll:

We wanted an exhaust which is legal (in Austria). Therefore it was not possible to make it louder :roll:
But I will do some more clips when it is installed a little while.

HKS Exhaust
Where did you find your HKS Exhaust?

chubv 01-03-2009 11:18 AM

I've done two new clips.
You should use good speakers because a lot of sound is at the deep frequencylevel :wink:

Oxybluecoop 02-12-2009 12:53 PM

OXYBLUE, where did you get the exhaust? Is it direct bolt? What was the cost?

pillar 02-16-2009 07:41 AM

even if its direct bolt... it seems there was some bumper cuttage
