    Anyone recommend Sportex exhausts?

    Morning all

    Just one before I head off to bed, anyone had any experience with Sportex back boxes at all? Just wondering as there are some nice ones going on ebay for good money.

    Its going to be combined with a Modified standard pipe ( IE replaced silencer with a pipe )

    anyone reckon this is going to be loud?

    it'll be mega loud mate

    sportex have little sound deadening in and are stupidly loud

    one of our NE members has one on his 2.2 and its loud and not a nice loud if u ask me (sorry mate u know who u are!!) - some may say its like the kettle calling the pot black with my exhaust but sportex are noted for being on the loud side.....

    if u want a subtle grumble but with the increased volume due to the modified centre pipe id seriously recommend the GT3 ones from ebay

    Cheers for the heads up Geordie!

    The noisier the better, the more it'll upset my pr*ck of a next door neighbour

    seriously I'll have a look at those GT3 ones you've said

    i've got a sportex centre section and backbox on my 1.6 and it sounds really nice, sometimes it seems a little too loud, but i don't think it's too bad, compared to some of the saxo squad and their 4" bigbores. hope this helps
