I've been considering swapping out my standard exhaust for a nice performance system. I knew that Supersprint used to make it for the coupe, does anyone know of any other good brands that still make the exhaust for the coupe?

I'm sure Ragazzon will do systems for all variations. I bought one for the VIS from Balance Motorsport. Very nice bit of kit that even the fitters commented on.

I have a Bluefame stainless one one that was second hand when I got it years ago and it's still going strong.
Pity the engine let go mind smile

Cybox still available, have one on my VT6. Also do a decat pipe if needed.


This is how it should have come out of Torino!

Ragazzon aren't cheap. I've asked Cybox if they'll freight to Oz. Toyosports, a seller on Ebay has a coupe system, anyone know if they're any good? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/STAINLES...-0-20v-TURBO-OR-NON-TURBO-/400299701986. I've asked them if they'll freight to Oz.

I have this on my 20vt and it sounds great - not too loud - but definitely enough to let people know you are there - gets even better when hot
My 20vt still has the cat too :-)

Fitted one to my 20vt last week. Agreed not too loud but nice deep sound. Beware the tail pipe is 4 inches wide and very much looks it ....!

Does it look out of place? Is it difficult to fit?

They'll freight to Oz for 105 quid.

It does look big at the bumper but not out of place - but is a direct home fit in 30 minutes max

I’m a newbi so likely off piste here, but I’m sure that I read somewhere that a large bore exhaust tip could burn / damage the bumper lip ?

A good point - this particular cat back system is the same bore as the rest of the original system, but with a larger outer skin at the bumper area.

I have had a Cybox system with a large (4"?) tailpipe on for 14 years. No problem with melting the bumper:

That usually happens when the tip rots and falls off so that hot gasses hit the bumper directly.

I have this also, changed the overweight original cat as well and fitted a lighter slimmer cat at the same timel. I offered £138 I think and was accepted. DaveG also has one and cheaper again.

Yes I have a Toyosport system on my Plus, but needed to fit a sleeve around the cat outlet pipe for the centre pipe inlet to fit around, using a band clamp too. A good price and well made, but you may need to faff around a bit for a proper fit, not sure why they don't make the centre inlet pipe the correct smaller diameter to match the OE cat outlet?

Hmmm strange, I have a spare OE cat from my Porto 20vt and it's the same small diameter outlet as the OE cat on the Plus? Maybe the problem was the Toyosport centre pipe after all?

Interesting this as it came up in conversation twice this week.
A milltek catback I hat was 2.5" diameter. But a powerflow full system was 2.25" diameter, it came to me with a cat and downpipe, the rear of the cat had been sleeved with a welded on reducer to take it down to the 2.25"

Seems it could be either I guess - although you would imagine OE parts would need to conform to a single spec

I recently fitted a Ragazzon cat back to my 20vt.

I think it looks the job and sounds great.

I could't make an offer because he didn't have Oz as a freight option. I finally got sent a link that I could "buy it now" and the freight came up as 60 quid, which I was stoked about as he'd quoted me 105. I got an email the next day saying the freight wasn't enough and he sent me Paypal invoice for a further 38 quid. I could have argued and not bought it, but I have no local options for a stainless exhaust. So by the time I've paid the 10% GST on it I'll have outlaid almost $500 aud, but it's currently in transit at Charles De Gaul, so I'll just have to wait 2 weeks for it to turn up.

Do you have to cut the bumper on the Ragazon exhaust?

Im sure (if i can re-call correctly having owned one) that you needed to cut the bumper to get it sitting right.
