    Exhaust system advice

    Hello everyone,

    I have just discovered this site, As such am still finding my feet so hope im posting this correctly

    Ive owned my coupe turbo for a few months now and still adore her.

    Had a few things done and am now thinking about the exhaust system and which one to go for, im looking for a nice loudish sound but to keep it within the emmisons of the mot.

    I know you can take the cat of when mot time comes round but is there a exhaust that will give me that nice throaty loud growl and make her breeth better while staying whithin the emissions levels ?

    Thankyou for any advice anyone can throw my way

    Hello and welcome to the site! Get some pics up of your car soon!

    Firstly, if you want your car to stay legal and therefore insurable, keep the cat on. Most aftermarket ones only replace the standard system from the CAT back anyway.

    I have read on previous threads that Blueflame Exhausts produce a nice sound, however, more suggestions may follow.

    Hope you find what you are looking for.

    Hi mate, welcome to the site. just for future reference i thinks this should have been put in the Turbo Cars Forum.

    most people recommend either Blue Flame or Milltek i have a Turbo back Milltek and it is a really nice sound deep grumble on idle and normal cruising but when opened up it sounds like all hell has just broken loose!

    a pre cat replacement is a must on a turbo astra!!

    below is a video of my car on the rollers it sort of gives an idea of the sound of the Milltek when you open it up
