Not sure about the non heat exchanger model (their web site will show) but I've been very happy with my standard style Vintage Speed unit. +1 for Dan at Vintage Speed, a really helpful guy to deal with when I bought mine.

Get a custom system built by Rich aka TurboThomas 07817 602239. With or without HE's. His hideaway system is amazing.

If you are going to be running your van super low, stock exhausts will give you the best ground clearance by far.

I run a Vintage Speed back box on Turbo Thomas j-tubes (my bus runs a Type 4 motor). I was impressed with the quality of both items.
I ran a Speedshop stainless merged system with turbo muffler on my 2176cc Bug. Again, the Speedshop stuff was lovely quality at a reasonable cost.
At the end of the day, you pays your money and you take your choice...I don't think you'll go far wrong with any of the suggestions above.
Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Dave
