    jetex is the best aftermarket exhaust imo but this is quiet so it wont suit your tastes!

    probably best to go custom then you can choose how loud u want it.

    I had a custom one made by Custom Pipes in Doncaster. You can tell him how loud or quiet you would like it and which tail pipe you would like. I have a letterbox style on mine which looks good. If you want the details just PM me. He charged me £250 cash to make and fit it. I took the car to Vauxhall for its MOT and they were very impressed with the job he had done. If you do decide to get one, dont got to powerflow!

    definatly do not get peco absolute crap!

    keep ur piper back box as they are very well made then get a straight thru super sprint middle section which is defintly not quiet and makes a lovely sound! trust me its on mine and I havent herd another car like it! Not boy racer style but sounds powerful and goes from low down to high pitch which is exactly what I wanted.

    you aint going to have it roaring from B/box. it needs to be cat back or straight thourgh.
    I have a ashley back box. you can hear it, but aint roaring when ticking over.
    For £100 it has been a long lasting box, bearing in mind its mild steel.

    Full Bastuck system, quality!
    So....Sods law dictates bread will always land butter side down! A cat thrown out of a window will always land on it's feet. Take one cat, butter it's back and throw it out the window..What happens?!

    dont expect a lot from it though mate. Mine was only brought because it was twin 3, and The irmscher box I had on the car looked daft with the reiger rear, and after, going on a little spending spree that week, and the car going into the body shop that week I put it on as a temporary zorst.
    Never got round to changing it, and im waiting for it to pack up but its still holding strong after couple of years and 35k. So well impressed as a budget item.
    If your going to get one get a decent stainless one, they are extreamly long lasting, most places offer life time gaurantee on them.
    Best local guys I know for zorsts are Midland performance centre. There other buisness is ashley zorsts, but a reasonable priced on the other zorsts, and the lads and ladies there are top dollor, really do look after you.
