Sounds really great. Nice deep tones. I've got a R55 non-S and have been thinking about an exhaust mod. Considered Miltek already, but these vids may have convinced me. Thanks for sharing.

Anyone know if it sounds less throaty with a stock intake? Im interested in the Milltek but am trying to go for a more subtle sound....also, is there any difference in performance or mileage with the Milltek? Usually freer flowing exhausts improve mileage and throttle response but I havent seen any mention of that.

I hear my intake more than the exhaust. I mainly get this nice deep bass from the exhaust which my wife loves.

that's pretty good fitment. I'd only get it if it weighs considerably less than stock - are there specs of this? does it drone on the highway between 65-75mph?

Well I got mine from a fairly local tuner. Here is the link they are in Charlotte NC. They had to order it from MILTEK USA and it came directly from Britian. I have included a link for you to find a local MILTEK dealer.

i havent actually go on a dyno, because is too hot here in australia now lol
but i do feel a increase in hp, with the mileage , i would say is pretty much the same to me, but mayb thats becoz of my driving style
