I know janspeed make a centre section (well they did but it's no longer lsited on their site)
I currently have a straight through off a 1.1 but this is quite loud.

Would you think the janspeed would give more horses or the straight through system?

Would a 106 one fit? ax gt?
Can anyone else recommend another company?
Or does anyone have a janspeed one forsale?

Thanks!

I've said it many times b4 about the 1.1 mid section it actually loses you power on the xs engine

janspeed centre are ok but rust quick

I try and find a company that uses the xs for rallys they had a grp n set up for the xs

If the exhaust is anything like the GTI one, then the best one will probably be a good OE part, from someone like Arvin.

I got a centre section from CSC, to go with my manifold and backbox.
It is very well made with a straight through silencer that isn't too loud, just like the backbox.
The only problem is, it is too short! It is about 2' shorter than the OE pipe and when I questioned CSC about this, they said yes it is supposed to be. Apparently they sell it so it can be welded to the original pipe. Very strange. I had this done at a local exhaust place at a cost of 50 and it is a very good system now, but rather a funny way of going about things.

Don't know what they're like but i saw on ebay the other day, OMP group A/N center sections and back boxes. Fairly reasonably priced too, might be worth having a look.

Well just to update.

I now have a 'peco big bore 2' centre pipe fitted, it looks the same as the original to be honest! (but the words big and bore give it an extra 10bhp. :D )

Cost 99p off ebay. B)
