Default Bent/dented exhaust, will it be a problem?

Hi all,

Just bought an my04 over the weekend and was given an nvidia exhaust though it has a dent as per the pictures attached.

Will this be an issue, should i get it repaired? Im chasing 220kw atw

Many thanks in advance.

It will make zero difference in making power more power / less power

Put it back on

Dent or no dent, you may struggle getting 300hp with just an exhaust!

Awesome, thanks Guys.

I bought the car with the following:
• 3inch turbo back
• VF22 turbo
• Ecutek
I’m in the process of sourcing a silicone and cold air intake and fuel pump.

Im guessing I should be able to reach my target with over 20psi?

I know the vf22 is not the best. I was looking at purchasing a td05 18g though not sure it will be worth the cost.

My Butler system has a huge flat spot like that, made no difference whatsoever.

First off get fucked Neil, funny thing is last week I was talking to one of the members on here about finally fitting that Blitz Dual EBC I bought off you about 7 or 8yrs ago (probably fucked) and whacking it up to about 21psi from the standard 17.

Rear diff is pretty fucked after driving on a dodgy sized wheel for a few hundred K's so no more launches and I finally took the non working power steering pump out, just gotta get around to putting the one that rolled around in my boot for 8yrs back in and finally see if it works

I don't have a 4.44 diff to gift you Tom

I still recall you with the trailer on the back of your car chopping every fucker on the freeway haha.

I have high respect for your shit box. Shows just how good these old motors are. Hence why I have been with the brand since the RS Liberty.

Have to catch up for a beer. It's been 4 years
