just rang peco then to see what i can get for my car, the woman who answered asked what car, i said honda civic, she said "type r?" so i told her it is a 1.4 but its the same as the 1.6sohc straight away with no hesitation she said "no we dont do anything, bye". i know peco are sponsors and everythin but i think that was a load of crap, she was not helpful at all.

Thats a bit off, theres absolutely no excuse in my book to talk to a customer/potential customer/member of the public like that, but she may just be having a bad day I suppose, or could have been rushed for some reason.

Try again in a bit or tomorrow matey. Has anybody else had this with Peco? Im assuming it "must" be a one off as they wouldnt have been in business for years n years with customer relations like that lol.

You can call in,
there is a intercome on the main door.

Bare in mind that Not all cars are stocked,
they tend to do main stream.

Meaining that they have to justify the devolopment etc..

Your best trying to calling again,
or visit there online shop - see if its listed there.

If not then i guess the lady - as rude as she may have
been could have been right.

That is poor phone manners there. Where is the place that u phones,is it in the same building as dave and the rolling road? or was it just some supply call centre? u cud just get a type R one and have it adapted to fit,the shape of the underside of the car is the same no? i know with mk6 escorts the back of the cat is in the exact same place on every model and the floorpan is the same shape so if u buy a "GTI" magnex exhaust it can be fitted to every 1.6 and 1.8 straight off,with a 1.3 or 1.4 it "may" need the end flange modifying but thats a 2 minute job to any good welder. Why not try a custom system from sprayforce or powerflow etc

There was an EK type R, which shud have the same floorpan as a normal EK

Powerflow exhaust can range from cheap to expensive depending on what u want,im assuming sprayforce will be the same,but put it this way. For 460 quid i had my old escort De-catted,straight thru mid section to a DUAL exit with 4x6 ovals either side of the car, altho i'd recommend just getting the backbox custom made with a tailpipe of ur choice,and then,if u really want,get the mid-box removed for more noise.

Powerflow is...i dont know,the one i went to was in coventry,but i was based in the west mids at the time so thats why i went there

the floorplan for the EK9 type r will be the same but they are even more uncommon then mine so im assuming that coz EP type Rs are more common that she meant that

Scotty what year is your Civic? I may be able to help

Only thing with Scoops suggestion is, using his example for example (:p) yes the exhaust system does fit BUT the bore sizes are different between a 1400 and 1800 Zetec <-- Someting to watch out for.

standard 1.4 escort system is godknows what diameter, the aftermarket system i had made up was 2 inch midsection with no silencer in it, and it fitted onto my 1.6 system straight off,and the 1.6/1.8 bores are the same,backbox sizes are different tho. If u get a type R system,theres a chance it'll be a larger diameter than ur standard mid pipe,but so would ANY performance exhaust,weather its meant for ur car or not,thats what helps with the performance,aswell as the better silencer boxes

hi there, i've got a 53 plate vectra 1.8 sri, and i got peco to build me a twin exit system cos no one else does one. they were great, i took the car to them and let them have a look,and they jumped at the project. , let me choose my tailpipes etc. i then left the car with them for two weeks when i went to america, and came back to a fantastic system. Try emailin Sales@peco, to gerry. worked for me ! cheers jonah(the new boy)

You can actually get a cat back, stainless system from the states for less than 200 rips - maybe worth considering.. think
