    What exhaust system for Astra 1.8 SXi

    Hello,

    I have an Astra 1.8 SXi 3 door 52 plate. I have de-resricted the airbox, fitted a K&N Panel filter and done the Veccy C Deisel inlet pipe mod.

    The next thing I want is a sport exhaust system. Not sure whether to get a straight through, or a cat-back or something. Infact, I know nothing about the exhaust systems, what would fit etc.

    I would like a nice bassy, but not too over-the-top sound to it.

    If some people could tell me what they have, how it works/sounds any problems etc. Or if you could tell me what would be a good idea, at a reasonable price, I'd be grateful.

    Look forward tohearing from you.

    Ryan.

    If there is a reputable fitter near you, you could try powerflow. I have a cat-back system from them (straight through from the cat) and it emits a quiet but bassy sound - just right.

    However, it does rattle a bit now, so 'll need to get that sorted.

    well courtenay say full 2 1/2 inch bore exhaust is the way to go on that engine, i rang them before i bought mine and went for a full powerflow cat back from kingwinsford tyres 2 1/2 inch and the sound it gives off is some think else real bass sound and a small amount of popping when you let your foot off the throttle. performance is good also and if you plan on other engine mods like cams and inlet manifold it will help get the best from them.
