    It will pretty much sound the same, but louder.

    You're wasting your money on a DTi. If you're looking performance, just get the cat removed. You don't need it for MOT, and it'll help the engine rev freer. If you're looking a bit of a note, just cut out the middle box as well.

    The exhaust fell off my mk4 escort 1.8d, and it got very little louder, it rusted through at the front pipe but you could hardly tell!!
