    thats my worry,

    i like a nice deep note, and want a bit of noise, but dont want to be one of those cars that everyone i live near hates because its so loud,

    ive got a remus centre pipe and irmscher backbox on my 1.8 which isnt to bad, but gets annoying on a long drive,

    just hard to tell what it'll be like with this backbox,

    can i just ask does the silencer very slightly restrict power like the cat does or not? (ie. is it purely for reducing the sound)?

    i think its just sound, and actually the silencer could possibly help power as keeps the pressure how the engine wants it?

    i dont think there is any power reason why removing the silencer helps,
