    exhaust has had it

    My 172 is exactly 2 years old today. When i started it up this morning the exhaust started blowing quite badly so seems its on its way out. Are there much options other than a ktec or magnex, also Im tempted to get a custom decat pipe made up to get fitted at the same time

For only £20 it doesnt seem worth getting my own oil. As anyone got the...
