    astra mark 4 backboxes

    hi,

    ive been looking for a while for a new performance backbox for my astra mark 4 1.6 8v. my friend just got a new one for his polo. its made by scorpion. its called a letterbox i think but comes out then up. its sounds really nice and its the design i want. but find the same design for the astra. ive found some by sportex, but they look a bit tacky and i dont know wot there like. Any suggesions on good sounding exhausts and links are very welcome!

    cheers

    Hi Watty, Welcome to AOC

    Personally I love the Irmscher twin oval (coz I have one) ... it just looks the part... not much roar, get a Cone filter too that'll give a nice little growl!

    i have the irmy twin oval on my 1.6 16v, no noise but did notice more throttle response, alot of people on here have said about the remus centre section for the mk4 astras so thats what im going to get to link up with my irmy box.

    I have a glasspack backbox, it sounds like an oldskool 325i
    Designed in 1968 for the mopars, it burbles and woofs when you let off the gas and sounds superb
