It would be nice if they did a 4-2-1 that connected to the existing standard K silencer/cat. The system looks very nice but I prefer the smaller diameter of the stock system. I think powerspeed only provide a 7 inch diameter silencer.

Hi chaps,

I spoke to Fast Road and a couple of things have changed.  They no longer offer group buys, and their prices have gone up....significantly.  Prices as follow:

4-2-1 no cat = £1,500+VAT

4-2-1 with 200 cel cat = £1,680+VAT

Fitting = £300+VAT

High Polish finish = £200+VAT.

So you're looking at £2,400 for a no-cat exhaust system. Not sure how that compares to others, but that put it out of reach for me. With that expense, I might as well just trade up my car, as it certainly wont add to the overall value. 

Will continue my search for a used example!

When I joined the club 15 years ago there were a number of bulk buys. I can't remember how much they were back then but it feels like it has gone above inflation. According to the BoE £1000 back then would be £1470ish now.

If buyers back then could confirm how much they paid we can see how the price has climbed

Speak to Mike Edwards.....

You will also find he uses properly merged collectors, not clipped bent pipes and his TIG welding is an art form, no scruffy MIG !

Thumb Up

I just looked out my payment details for an October 2002 club bulk-buy Powerspeed 4-2-1 exhaust.  It was for a 1.8 supersported SV.  I don't think there was a cat in it but the can was part of the deal.  I think mine was the first SV they had seen so I took my car to them to make it up.  The price included fitting.

£450 inc VAT

Mine would have dated from around 2006, had a full system but no cat as part of a bulk buy. I can't remember the price exactly but from memory i'd say a fitted price of around £1000 sounds about right. They also modified my old exhaust to fit the headers for use at MoT time.

£2400 with no cat sounds an awful lot have to say.
