Corsa VXR Nürburgring Exhausts
13 Apr 2012, 16:08
Courtenay Sport are pleased to announce the development of exhaust systems for Corsa VXR Nürburgring by Milltek and Piper.
|Working closely with Piper Exhausts, a 76mm stainless steel tailbox has been developed for the Corsa VXR Nürburgring. Added to the existing 76mm system for Corsa VXR, a full 76mm system is now available for this car, to help release maximum performance.
As with the current system, the first main cat is removed and options include twin or single silencer systems with or without a motorsport cat.
Cars fitted with a full system will require an ecu remap to ensure optimum safe running and to overcome any issues with the emissions, as the VXR Nürburgring is a Euro 5 compliant model from the factory and removing the large factory fitted pre cat and just using a high flow motorsport cat will require an ecu recalibration to give correct fuelling and emissions.
Piper offer a range of tail trims, however the options shown here, 4" (100mm) Slash Cut, is probably one of the best.
Pricing is as follows:
Full 76mm System with Motorsport Cat* Twin Silencers £1385.00
Full 76mm System with Motorsport Cat* Single Silencer £1240.00
Deduct £255.00 for a completely decatted* system
Cat Back System Twin Silencers £750.00
Cat Back System Single Silencer £610.00
*Note: A motorsport cat will pass current UK MOT emissions. In some countries motorsport cats may not be road legal. Please comply with the relevant laws of your country. Removing both cats may not be road legal and will lead to an MOT emissions failure.
|After the announcement by Milltek Sport of a 70mm twin outlet cat back exhaust system for the Corsa VXR Nürburgring, Courtenay Sport are pleased to confirm that a full 70mm (2.75 inch) stainless steel system is now available.
The system removes the existing Euro V compliant first catalyst (pre-cat) replacing it with straight through pipework, the second cat in the factory system is replaced with a high flow motorsport cat*, and the cat back system comprises of a stainless steel performance exhaust system with a twin-box rear silencer design with twin outlets.
The system has been developed with three different Tailpipe tip options:
90mm Polished, 100mm Polished and 100mm Titanium
Regardless of which tailpipe option you choose, the system offers perfectly balanced sound quality.
The Corsa VXR Nürburgring exhaust is manufactured from the finest quality 14-16 gauge 2.75-inch T304 stainless steel and features TIG-welded joints, C.N.C. mandrel bending and offers a significant weight saving over the OEM exhaust.
This system will release additional power and torque over a standard system but will require an ecu remap to ensure optimum performance and no issues with management light illumination due to the motorsport catalyst, and removal of the first catalyst. Additionally the second lambda sensor wiring will need extending to fit. The system will also be ideally suited for customers wishing to further tune their vehicles to over 300bhp.
This full system is available at £1950.00 inc VAT and UK Mainland Shipping.
The cat back system is £925.00 inc VAT and UK Mainland Shipping.
Pricing is for either the 90mm or 100mm polished tail trim option.
For Dual Titanium 100mm tail trim please add £125.00
Please contact us for more details or to order.
*Note: A motorsport cat will pass current UK MOT emissions. In some countries motorsport cats may not be road legal. Please comply with the relevant laws of your country.

|For significant gains in performance above the OE Z20LEH K04 exhaust manifold, this new cast manifold offers an ideal solution. Developed in conjuncton with our German Tuning partner Klasen Motors, this manifold offers the OE durability of a cast manifold, unlike stainless steel tubular manifolds which are prone to cracking, has a high quality finish, is manufactured from high quality materials and has been flow tested to 600bhp, although Stephan has produced a 689PS conversion with the manifold. Features a Tial V-Band mounting flange for any suitable turbocharger plus external wastegate, again on a Tial V-Band flange. This can be capped if an internal wastegate option is required.
The V-Band flange provides better security of the turbocharger to the manifold, and is less prone to backing off unlike traditional 4 bolt garrett flanges, and also allows for the retention of the air conditioning system.
