Hi all, I currently have a Remus race pipe and am considering changing it for a Magnex Cat back. I would like to know peoples opinions on the 2 exhausts, both sound wise and power wise. I have a an Astra G 1.8 turbo so exhaust flow is an important issue for turbo spooling.
My opinion is that the Remus race pipe is just a tad over the top rally style. It is too loud and poppy. The loss of back pressure is just a bit too much down low and affects torque but after 4000revs its a different animal. It sounds like a bike and the free flow of exhaust gasses makes a huge difference to acceleration. My car pulls hard right to the limiter and power doesn't fade off like it did with the standard exhaust. But some days i just wish it wasn't soo loud. Don't get me wrong, I love a nice deep throaty snarl but Its just too much some days.
So I thought about going for the Magnex Stainless Steel system with a middle silencer as opposed to the Remus straight through but I can't make my mind u whether its the right choice.
