centre pipe differences?

hi, just before i place an order for a forge dump valve and decat centre pipe, can anyone tell me if there is going to be any difference between a magnex straight through pipe and a scoobyworld afterburner straight through? (apart from the prices!). with delivery inc. it's going to cost 10 more for buying both items on scoobyworld although the afterburner pipe is about 30 more than the magnex. i maybe wrong, but a centre pipe is surely a fairly standard part, isn't it?

most importantly, is there a diameter difference? because neither specify the width.
does anyone on here own either?
cheers in advance for replies.
rgds, BB.

Only dif could be build quality and material used
Which is which, who knows
Both could be exactly the same quality and material


That's as clear as mud then.

If both are Stainless Steel go with the cheaper one

thanks m8, now that is really tempting! please stop now! looks like i'm going to be busking on the streets of cardiff again this christmas! or perhaps i should go to newport? you know what they say....'never shite on your own door step!'

looks like i'm going to have to wait some time before the TEK 3 remap. by the way, is this worth doing with just a green panel filter, centre decat and forge DV?

Hi brum, I would wait til you have all the mods onboard (panel filter, dumper, centre section and back box as it will be mapped to how you want it then and not part way. if you have it mapped when only part done you wont get the full benefit and would need a second session when all parts are on to bring out the best ( and that will cost an extra 150ish).

hi, buzz. all of which you have stated above will definately be in place very soon, but without a full decat i'm not sure how much power gain i will actually get from a tek 3. anyone have any ideas of gains, or places where i can get this info from? (MY99 uk classic).

also, when fitting centre pipe and vta dump valve, do i need to reset the ECU for either?? :?

Magnex - mild steel flanges
Scoobyworld - can't ever recommend their products and service enough. I've used them repeatedly over the past 3/4 years, well before I was involved in business with them.

Pagid pads are one of the best.

You don't need an ECU reset unless there was a problem with it already.
