  1. This is the brand new 76.0mm Golf R Mk7/7.5 Downpipe from BCS Powervalve... Following on from the demand for ultimate flow we have developed this with clients looking at up to 600 bhp in mind. Featuring the oversized 100 cell cat with an open area equivalent to an 93.0mm open pipe and the brand new 76.0mm 'Softflex' specifically developed with flow in mind having a genuine 76.0mm I.D. unlike previous 76.0mm flexis which only offer a 69,0mm I.D. To further compliment the downpipe both the catted and cat delete pipes will now be supplied with the 1200 degree titanium thermal wrap to enhance power further, and the 200 cell lambda mini cat. Thanks for looking Nige
  2. Images of the Mk6 Powervalve Sport (Single rear silencer) with cat delete pipe Thanks for looking Nige
  3. One or two of the members wanted to listen to the new Rev III design Powervalve system, which features a greater deal of popping and burbling when free revving. In addition there is a larger amount of reverb on the overrun... Thanks for looking Nige
  4. Recent review in VW Driver magazine.Thanks for looking.
  5. Another recent members car installation of the Powervalve full turbo back variable tone system with Ceramic black coated trims. This one features the new 100 cell cat as the car was utilizing a hybrid turbo pushing 500 bhp. Custom mapping was performed by Rick at Unicorn A perfect result and zero drone. thanks for looking... Cheers Nige
  6. Not sure if this is the right section but.... Thought I'd do a quick review of the BCS Powervalve turbo-back exhaust system on my 2012 Golf 6 R. For those who don't know, BCS offer their Powervalve system as a 'best of both worlds' option. In layman terms, it has a boost activated valve which opens when you give it some stick. When driving sensibly, it retains the OEM factory sound. All of this without a drop of drone. I've always wanted a BCS system, however they are certainly at the top end of the market, in terms of build quality and price. Last year I was offered, and stupidly bought, a cheaper system. The drone was unbearable, it rattled every panel and sounded like a tug boat off-boost. It lasted around 20 miles/24 hours before I reverted back to the OEM system. I noticed earlier in the year that BCS were thinking of running a group buy - that's where it all began! Ordering I called BCS on a Saturday morning and had a lengthy chat with the wizard/frontline man that is Nige. We'd already spoken on PM but I had some questions and Nige carefully talked me through the engineering and mantra behind the BCS system and brand. I thought I knew what I wanted, but there were a few options which I hadn't thought of. Nige advised me to have a think and give him a buzz back on Monday morning. Needless to say, I spent the weekend watching just about every BCS/exhaust video on YouTube and speaking to BCS owners on their thoughts and opinions. I decided on the 200cel downpipe with Sports Cat (to keep MOT's hassle free) with single centre silencer and twin rear silencers & stainless tips. The photo below isn't my car, but it's a near identical system, albeit with a twin centre silencer as opposed to single. The valve is positioned on the rear boxes, and therefore when opened, bypasses these. When off boost, the system is using three silencers, and retaining the OEM sound. When boost is activated, the rear silencers are bypasses, therefore only using one single centre resonator and amplifying the sound. I opted for a single centre silencer (as opposed to twin) for a louder on-boost tone. Called Nige back on Monday 06 March and placed my order. Delivery & Installation Had a call on Friday 07 April from Nige to advise the exhaust was ready for dispatch. Sorted out payment and, as promised, the exhaust showed up on Monday 10 April, carefully wrapped in two rather large boxes. The system took exactly 5 weeks from date of order to delivery. As there are several options, the 6R Powervalve systems are built to order hence the short lead time. Untitled by Ollie Dunstall, on Flickr Initial impressions - fantastic build quality, perfect welds. I didn't actually unwrap much aside from the rear boxes and exhaust tips. The system also comes with a Powerflex dog bone mount which is recommended to install with it, all of the fixtures and fittings, the line that is required to be run from the valve to the engine bay and a Forge Motorsport boost feed valve. Untitled by Ollie Dunstall, on Flickr Unfortunately, due to being around 4hrs from BCS, I opted to have a friend who is a handy spanner twirler/Audi tech to install the system. He fitted it in around 3/4 hours. He installed & removed my previous (rubbish) system, and commented how superior the BCS system is in terms of quality and also fit. Untitled by Ollie Dunstall, on Flickr The Verdict One word, amazing! A more sporty tone when idling/normal driving, a touch more volume but still sedate. Not 'look at me I've got an exhaust' at all. But as soon as you hit boost, this thing comes alive. I'm really shocked at the deep grunty tone which is pretty impressive from a 4 cylinder engine. I was worried about it sounding like a tractor off-boost, but thanks to the Powervalve it really is the best of both worlds. Perhaps the most impressive factor is there is absolutely ZERO drone, at any speed. The only negative I can think of is the noticeable increase in fuel consumption as I can't seem to help myself booting it when given the opportunity! Unfortunately I haven't yet been able to get any photos of the entire system when on a ramp, but here's a quick photo and video I managed to snap yesterday whilst out for a blast: Untitled by Ollie Dunstall, on Flickr As a footnote I'd like to give a massive thanks to Nige @ BCS who has been a pleasure to deal with throughout. From initial enquiry to receiving the system, it's clear Nige knows his stuff and has put a LOT of time and research into his product. Couple this with the fantastic customer service and build quality and it's worth every penny. If you're thinking about taking the plunge, do it!
