Guys I did some detective work on google with very interesting results. From a discussion among MG owners on their forum, I found out that Peco turned into Cybrand, which is basically the manufacturing arm of Cybox. So I decided to call them up. The guy I spoke to told me Peco folded in 2011 and they absorbed some of their tooling and staff, they also took ownership of the Peco name. He also told me that they had worked with Alfatune to make their downpipes. I was trying to push to see if this means they are the same but given a different name and as far as I can tell the answer is yes. They are SS, lifetime warranty and use mandrel bends. Cybox can do them for £307 but if several of us get together and they make a batch it will be a bit cheaper (easier said than done). May I suggest that if you are interested the first step is to speak to Jerry/Gerry at Cybox on 0151 343 0330. He is very helpful and I think maybe Cybox have realised they have missed a trick here. I think I am going to go down this route but not instantly, mainly because I don't have my car at the moment (it's being restored and is sitting in the paint shop queue).
I am CF3.
Good detective work James2375. Thank you. £307 is much better than £450 from Alfatune. And mandrel bends means they will be in one piece rather than pieces welded together. I need a set for a phase 2 v6.
The Japanese ones look good but are just too expensive.
For the poster above, CGC, wondering how equal length front pipes affect the GTV sound, this is my experience.
1. They remove drone from the exhaust ( should there be an after market exhaust)
2. They tend to accentuate the tonal changes throughout the rev range. These tonal changes are already there with the v6 but are accentuated. They make a drive more pleasurable as distinct tonal changes every 500 revs are even more distinct and crisper.
3. The lower rev range is .... ..... I am not sure how to explain but drone is removed and it is a bit meatier when under load. 2000 revs let's say.
4. In the higher rev range the engine just screams
Overal they make the v6 sound more refined. Not quieter. Not louder, but refined. They make the v6 sound even better than it did before. And makes it sound like it is of a much more expensive and exotic Italian marque. These make the v6 sound even more Italian.
