CNT Racing Version 2 07-13 R56 R58 S Catback Exhaust system (Polish Tips) (turbo models)SKU CB-07MINI
The new CNT Racing cat-back exhaust system for the R56 MINI Cooper S is one of the highest quality and best sounding exhausts on the market for the R56. It features dual tips and 2.5" piping to guarantee free exhaust flow through your turbo Mini. It's designed to bolt up to the stock downpipe and eliminates the second cat. All necessary hardware and gaskets are included. If using the GP2 diffusers on your MINI you may need to cut them to fit this exhaust.
Exhaust was a pain to install. I suggest don't use the clamps that come with the exhaust. After installation the exhaust is very quiet but Droning is horrible over 70 mph. It does look nice though. Very shiny and new compared to factory exhaust
Some of the welds were janky and the included clamps were not tight enough to prevent sag, but that is an easy fix. I ended up using 3" flat band clamps. The exhaust was too tight to my rear bumper cover, but also an easy fix. I ended up putting in shorter mid hangers and longer rear hangers. It sticks out a little bit more that I would like, but I honestly don't feel like cutting it. It looks and sounds great on the car.
This system fit perfect and was easy to install. For the $$ you will not find a better exhaust. Super high quality at a bargain price. Beautiful welds, hangers all in the correct location and clamps work perfectly. It doesn’t come with the OEM dowmpipe clamp and this clamp is not reusable 90% of the time on every MINI I have worked on. So do yourself a favor and have one prior to pulling the stock exhaust off.
