    right note?!

    on the hunt for a new replacement back box for my coupe turbo and wondered if there was anything out there that doesnt resemble a bean tin nor does it sounds like a chavvy boy racer in his $hitreon paxo?

    im after something more 'maturer' that doesnt draw attention unless i want it too or only if its very subtle. ive done the 5" can on my fiesta which you couldnt hear what your passenger was saying, ive done the magnex 6x4 on the vectra which sounded terrible, now im on the hunt for something that doesnt sound silly.

    i know im not asking alot here lol but is there anything out there that doesnt sound too loud when at slower speeds ie 30mph, but does have a little bit of grunt when you boot it?

    rambled on too long now, thanks in advance

    Scorpion or blueflame, both are quiet when driving around normally.

    Mine is pretty quiet on idle and normal driving, but has a decent rip to it when the foot is down,

    It sounded to me like a Vxr, as my mate had a vxr at the time
