    Remus V Magnex opinion poll.

    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.

    The back box i have at the mo is a twin exit F1x Racing or something. Not all that impressed with it to be honest..

    Dannny, would you class your as loud with the magnex back box?

    Isnt the remus louder than the magnex? The magnex is fairly silent, i heard Forsies system some time back and it werent no way as purry as mine and ive got a Scorpion. It probably does the same thing though. Depends on the look of the back box too, personal opinion in my eyes.

    Do you get much popping and banging when your changing gears at high revs or is it just my motor?
