    Disappointed with remus pipe :(

    Hi, ive just got my car back after getting a remus centre section fitted and i had expected more sound

    Ive got an irmy back box on (oval split) and i can only notice a little change in the sound.

    Will the sound improve after time? Or will i need to get another back box?

    Im trying to get a nice rumble when idle and a deep roar when im driving but nothing too extreme if you know what i mean.

    If i fit an induction kit will it make it louder?

    Cheers,
    Neil

    induction kit will make it louder BUT will most likely decrease your cars performance

    to get real sound u need real power real race parts etc.

    yes mate it will, mine started off very quiet and i was quite disapointed, give it two months mate and it should be nice and burbley!
    dont bother with an induction kit, just get a K+N replacement pannel filter
    have a listen to my sound clips from an earlier post

    Why do you want it extremely loud? just for the attention?

    Drill some holes in it.

    Lol just remembering back to when I was 17 and had my Orion Ghia - we drilled the airbox and the backbox with loads of little holes. My god that thing was loud!!

    (Even had pepperpots and a Kenwood sticker across the back window pmsl )

    i have a remus centre section fitted with a sportex back box and it is LOUD! at first i was abit embarrassed lol but used to it now only been on about 6 weeks so i hope it doesnt get any louder! i floored it the other day and it set the car parked next to were i was alarm off. alot of people say with irmy back box on it you get a nice subtle sound so its prob that , i dont think an induction kit will make any difference to exhaust sound.
