I wanted a stainless system as the after market ones kept failing, so booked it in asked them to copy the standard system from the cats back with all mounting points and flanges, so basically a stock exhaust in stainless, they quoted me and I said ok go ahead.
And what I got was the flanges cut off the cats 1 centre box and 1 pipe to the back box and a bodge of hangers no flanges or joints completely welded.
Now the lambda probes have gone week and the cats are rattling, ordered new lambda probes but they are seized into the down pipes so ordered new after market cats and boy is it a pain in the arse trying to get them to fit.
I'm now binning the stainless heap of shat and going back to a normal one

Another vote for jetex from me I got one just under 2 years ago and it wasn't that bad price 550 iirc and fitted with no problems yes 80 double outlets but I personally think it looks better than the smaller original

Just down at profusion here at heathrow. At the moment just getting a stainless back box fitted. I was talking to the chap a full cat back system using magnaflow. He said he wouldnt go the route of 2 into 1 but would fit a crossover then bring them both into back box.
 After taking my back of he started the car and rev'd it.(what a lovely sound). Idea behind this was to get a sound level so we could decide what size rear box to put on. It now sound nice without any low down drone :y

Hi, I am planning on taking a trip to them in a week or so to price up some exhausts for my show cars. What sort of price did you pay for the rear box?

I realise this is an old thread but info only, it looks like Jetex is stopping its Omega exhaust - saloon not available, maybe limited estate sets left

They will do a production run if you can get 10 or more confirmed buyers, speak to Neil @ Jetex.  Have done this a couple of times including a batch for 3L 24v Carlton GSi.

The Jetex system on my Omega is over 10 yrs old, still looks and sounds as good as new ;)

If you Elite an MV6, does that make it an MVee-leet?
