  • Available Now - VW Polo GTI 1.8 TSI Performance Exhaust Systems

    VW Polo GTI 1.8 TSI Sports Exhaust SystemsThe latest vehicle to pass through the Cobra Sport exhaust development process is the MK6 VW Polo GTI 1.8 TSI. Having previously achieved impressive results from the 1.4 Polo GTI we were keen to get the MK6 Polo GTI into the workshop to develop a new range of Cobra Sport performance exhausts.

    The larger 1.8 litre engine in the new Polo GTI produces 190bhp as standard matched with an impressive 236 lb-ft of torque giving the lightweight (1272kg) Polo impressive performance figure on paper whilst creating an exhilarating drive. The 1.8 litre petrol engine is in essence a downsized version of the 2.0 litre TSI engine found in the Golf GTI. The engine shows hints of displaying a hard edged exhaust tone as standard, this is something we have taken much further to offer a deeper more vibrant pitch to the finished Polo GTI exhaust systems.

    The new MK6 Polo has been a big hit with initial owners and journalists who rate the 1.8 litre TSI engine as a big improvement over the 1.4 TSI which laboured at the top end of the rev range. The move back to a manual 6 speed gearbox has also met approval thanks to the extra torque available over the optional 7-speed DSG gearbox.

    The larger 1.8 litre engine in the new Polo GTI produces 190bhp as standard matched with an impressive 236 lb-­‐ft of torque giving the lightweight Polo impressive performance figures on paper whilst creating an exhilarating drive. The Cobra Sport team were able to reduce the weight of the exhaust system by an impressive 41% over the OEM system with the resonated 2.5” cat back system weighing in at only 9.52kg compared to the original 16.20kg. The de-­cat and sports cat front pipes have been enlarged to 3” bore and offer a weight saving of 0.60kg.

    The new systems benefit from all of the usual Cobra Sport refinements with mandrel bent, TIG welded, grade 304 stainless steel used throughout the systems as standard. You can therefore be assured of only the best quality in a Cobra Sport system. Matt Thomas, Sales Manager at Cobra Sport says “The new MK6 Polo has been a big hit with initial owners and journalists who rate the naturally aspirated 1.8 litre engine as a big improvement over the previous 1.4 TSI. We are very excited to have developed a full range of exhaust systems to offer an upgrade to suit the wide range of buyer requirements. The new Cobra Sport systems greatly improve the exhaust pitch and tone and add the sporty edge which was missing from the factory system. The resonated cat back system offers the subtlest upgrade offering an increase of 10db over the standard system in the 4,000 rpm static test. The resonated cat back exhaust upgrade is designed to provide a purposeful but unobtrusive pitch perfect sound quality which in no way interferes with day-­to‐day drivability”.

    The styling of the system is finished off with a choice of twin 3” and 3.25” tailpipes in a highly polished T304 stainless steel finish. These options include a less obtrusive oval slash cut version which further compliments the VW aesthetics.

  • Cobra Sport unleash the Venom of the Astra J VXR

    Vauxhall Astra J VXR Venom ExhaustCobra Sport have expanded on their range of performance exhausts for the Vauxhall Astra J VXR by creating a Venom exhaust system which features simplified rear pipework for the ultimate improvements in both sound and performance.

    The OE system has been replaced with mandrel bent 3”/76.2mm bore T304 stainless steel pipework and is manufactured in Sheffield with beautifully bent pipework in place of the usual rear box to smooth gas flow and maximise possible performance gains. The simplified pipework of the Venom system has been designed to create an unrivalled deep sporty sound which will set the Astra J VXR ahead of the crowd. Sound testing of the finished Venom exhaust system when matched with additional first and second de-cat front pipes recorded an impressive 98db on the sound meter @ 4000rpm with a sound track which becomes highly aggressive under load.

    As with the other Astra J VXR exhaust systems in the Cobra Sport range, the Venom system is finished with dual twin tailpipes which have been designed to subtly fit within the Astra’s built in stainless steel exhaust outlets. The system is manufactured with 3”/76.2mm pipework which splits to two 2.25”/50.8mm arms. The intricate pipework bends and resonated centre section of the Venom exhaust system maintain the necessary back pressure within the system.

    Matt Thomas, Sales Manager at Cobra Sport offers his verdict on the Astra J VXR upgrade “Our new Venom exhaust is the ultimate upgrade for those looking for a quality of sound which beats any other system currently on the market. Following the success of our Venom exhausts for other vehicles in our range, we knew that the Venom system for the Astra J VXR would be a great match for the 2.0 turbocharged engine creating a sound which drew large crowds when demonstrated at the recent Performance Vauxhall Show”.

    As always Cobra Sport are willing to back up their promises on quality, with a lifetime guarantee for customers who purchase the exhaust upgrade. Usual refinements include, hand finishing using advanced TIG welding techniques and all Grade 304 stainless pipework being formed expertly on CNC Mandrel bending machines, which ensures the smoothest of gas flow,with precision jig manufacturing to ensure a perfect fit.

  • Available Now - Ultimate Venom for the Ford Fiesta ST180

    Ford_Fiesta_ST180_Venom_Sports_ExhaustCobra Sport have taken their range of exhausts for the Ford Fiesta ST180 to the next level with the release of a Venom style system finished with either a single or twin tailpipes. The new Venom systems remove the back box found in our cat back systems to offer an exhaust system with unrivalled sound and tone. The bore size has been increased to 3” (76.2mm) and the stainless steel pipework runs the full length of the vehicle allowing unrivalled flow rates whilst creating the pitch perfect aggressive sound preferred by many ST180 owners.

    The Cobra Sport system Venom system delivers a significant weight saving over standard. Testing of the Venom system resulted in a staggering 21% reduction in weight from the OE system’s 14.42kg, with the Cobra Sport system weighing in at only 11.2kg. The most significant improvement of the Venom system is the incredible sound quality produced by the simplified pipework. The volume of the Venom cat back system which includes a resonated section increases by +8.7db to 89.9db at 4000rpm. Matched with the additional Sports Cat front pipe the sound levels at 4000rpm rise by +15db to 96.2db creating an incredibly vibrant deep sporty exhaust tone.

    Matt Thomas, Sales Manager at Cobra Sport says “When we developed our existing range for the ST180 we created a range of systems which allowed for excellent power increases and weight savings. The Fiesta has continued to be an incredibly popular model so we knew that we needed to give our system a further edge. The Venom systems really are the ultimate upgrade giving the car a sound track to match its performance, our Venom systems make a great car even better“.

    You can be assured of only the highest quality materials being used in the production of all Cobra Sports exhaust systems with the highest quality grade 304 stainless steel used throughout the components and each exhaust being hand finished and individually TIG welded at our Sheffield factory. The levels of quality achieved enables us to offer a lifetime guarantee on all exhaust systems which provides the ultimate peace of mind for the customer.

  • Available Now - BMW M135i Performance Exhaust Systems

    BMW M135i Cobra Sport ExhaustThe BMW M135i has been described as one of the purest, most enjoyable driving BMWs to have been released in a very long time. The M135i boasts a turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six engine matched with rear wheel drive, making it a very attractive offering with exceptional handling characteristics and acceleration to match. The 3.0 litre engine found in the M135i gives an impressive 0-62mph time of just over 5 seconds. Our development model benchmarked 306bhp and 290 lb ft when tested on the rolling road.

    The Cobra Sport research and development team quickly made the decision to base the new performance exhaust systems for the BMW M135i on 3" (76.2mm) T304 stainless steel pipework. This pipework allows the engine to breathe and contributes to our aim for the largest natural performance improvements. Independent testing of the non resonated cat back system revealed impressive gains of +10bhp along with 16 lb ft of torque. The outstanding power results are complemented by a significant weight advantage with the Cobra Sport system weighing only 16.32kg giving a 20% decrease from the OEM weight of 20.38kg.

    Cobra Sport Sales Manager Matt Thomas commented "We're very excited about the release of the system for the M135i. The 3.0 litre engine has a fantastic reputation and our R&D team have been able to extract excellent power gains. The pick of the systems is the non resonated cat back exhaust, the sound is incredible with a beautiful pitch and tone. The sound from this system brought a local street to a standstill when out testing so I anticipate it to be a great success".

    The new sports exhaust systems are available in a number of configurations to cover the many different needs of M135i owners. The systems are based around a cat back configuration with the option for either a resonated or louder non resonated centre section. These cat back systems can be matched with a choice of front pipe replacement with either a sports cat option to further increase the available power gains along with a de-cat pipe to create the most dynamic sound track.

    The BMW M135i has an aggressive stance on the road with wide flared wheel arches matched with a smart but subtle body kit. Cobra Sport are keen to improve the styling over the standard M-sport exhaust to finish off the rear of the M135i with a more aggressive and balanced look by finishing the system with 3.5" (88.9mm) inward rolled baffled highly polished stainless steel tailpipes.

  • Honda Civic Type R FK2 2.0 Turbo VTEC Performance Exhaust Systems

    Honda Civic Type R Performance ExhaustsView our full range of Sports Exhausts for the Honda Civic Type R (FK2) on our product page  > Honda Civic Type R Cobra Sport Exhausts >

    Cobra Sport have now completed the development of a full range of performance exhausts for the new Honda Civic Type R FK2. The new FK2 Civic has been into the workshop previously for the initial design stages and the completion of an initial exhaust test system, which was taken to the Nürburgring for full track testing. Feedback from the test system has been analysed by our research and development team and they have now made the final tweaks the system to ensure the new exhaust does the Type R justice.

    The new Honda Civic Type R features a brand new 2.0-litre four cylinder direct injection VTEC Turbo engine which generates as standard 306 bhp at 6500rpm and 295lb ft of torque at 2500rpm. These figures lead to an impressive 0-62mph time of only 5.7 seconds. The 306bhp Japanese hot hatch is reported to be the best front wheel drive Type R to ever be released. Featuring a six speed manual gearbox along with proper mechanical LSD the Type R is sure to become a modern legend.

    The Cobra Sport Exhaust systems for the Type R have been developed in a number of configurations to appeal to a wide range of buyer requirements. The new cat back exhaust systems are available with either resonated or non resonated centre sections to suit buyers looking to improve and deepen the exhaust tone whilst staying within a similar decibel range for comfort within the cabin. Along with the cat-back systems we are able to offer the ultimate upgrade for the Civic Type R with a number of configurations for a full turbo back exhaust systems taking the Type R to the next level in terms of both sound and possible power output.

    We were keen to improve on the standard soundtrack. During the design stages we were keen to put this right straight away by enriching the sound produced by the 2.0 turbo Honda VTEC engine creating a vibrant and pitch perfect exhaust tone to match the strong styling of the Civic. The aggressive styling of the Civic Type R has been complemented beautifully by the 4” twin tailpipes available in a highly polished stainless steel finish.

    The bore size of the mandrel bent stainless steel pipework has been increased to 3” (76.3mm) to significantly increase flow rate and produce a deeper, more vibrant sound. Rolling road testing of the completed resonated cat back system revealed a +6.2 increase in bhp along with an impressive +26.7 lb-ft of torque taking the Civic Type R to the next level.

    Feedback from early FK2 Civic Type R owners and long term test journalists has been that the sound track as standard direct from the factory doesn’t match the aggressive styling of the bodywork having been described as ’not tuneful’ and ’not nice to listen to'. This is something that were keen to put right straight away by enriching the sound produced by the 2.0 turbo Honda VTEC engine creating a really vibrant and aggressive exhaust tone which is something the Civic Type R really deserves. The aggressive styling of the Civic will be complemented beautifully by a choice of 4” twin tailpipe options available with a highly polished stainless or ‘Blackout’ ceramic coated finish.
