    Help with exhausts?

    I know this has probably been covered a good few times, but trust me i did search and couldn't find buttons!

    Basically, i'm looking for an exhaust for my 1.6 sxi Mk4.



    As its the SRi rear, i cant get the Irmcher twin as theres not enough space. So i would be looking for just a single exit back box probably.

    My question is, whats the best place & manufacturer to go for? I've been looking on POTN etc and theres loads or companies.

    Also i dont want the exahust to be too loud, its more for how it looks than how loud it is!

    Finally, would people recommend getting just a back box? The only reason i wasn't going to get a full system is because the car is only a 1.6 and i don't think i'd see a dramatic increase in power, would I?

    Sorry for all the questions, but i'm totally new to this exhaust thing!

    Milltek's usually give the best performance and arent loud, which is what I like. Better than loadsa noise and no extra performance.

    As for quality, well Vauxhall use the Milltek for the 888 and as an option on the VXR so ... i think its safe to say their prob the best made exhausts in that price bracket (not cheap).

    the irmscher ones came standard on the 2.2's didnt they and alot of them were fitted with that bodykit so they do fit,

    Do you not need the twin exit splitter for that, i'm sure LMF told me there was two i could get, and one had a twin exit - which i assume was a bit wider, i think! Not sure though...
