Milltek Left pipe

You can only adjust the angle that they sit at, using the clamp where the pipe exits the rear silencer. This will allow you to swivel it vertically, but they should be set up OK when new.

It's a standard characteristic of the Milltek that it expands when it's hot. You can mess around for hours trying to get it right, just to line the feckin thing up to start with when it's cold, let alone when it's warm.

The problem is that the pipe from the centre silencer comes in on one side and, because this has expanded, it tends to push the left hand side of the rear silencer further towards the back of the car.

I had some fun with my local VW specialist when we stuck the silenced centre section back on after taking the straight-through section off because it was so bleedin' loud EEK2.GIF

TBH Jimmy, I'd just live with it. Nobody notices when you've left a dust trail anyway... tongue.gif

They should both expand when hot. There is a noticeable difference on mine after going out for a blast. They 'grow' in length by a few cm. I think that would be difficult to account for. You would have to guess how far the metal will grow by and adjust the pipes, let them heat up, check they are right and if not, let them cool down, adjust again, and then re heat them. It can't look that bad, surely?
