    Z18XE Backbox

    Right guys, heres my delimma, my backbox is pissing me off to put it simple, it looks ace, but the noise is driving me up the wall at the moment, so i want a nice shiny new one. My current system, lexmaul manifold with sports cat and remus centre section and powerflow backbox.

    Its a COUPE by the way.

    What backboxes can people reccomend for performance and a nice deep exhaust note? Ideally oval design.

    what about changing the center section for one with a silencer if you like the back box you have now?

    Sebring 6x4 should do the trick, that's what i have with the same setup as you and it's not too loud, it's just right

    Coupe now being broken for parts

    Good point leeeeshad. By adding a centre silicener it will just take the edge of the noise and soft the tone a tad. Poss effect the performance not sure though. Will be cheaper than getting a new back box

    liking dave's idea, not keen on putting a huge centre silencer back in, kinda defeats the point of a performance pipe....?

    I currently have a powerflow system from the cat back, with centre and rear silencers and 6x4 oval at the back.

    Its only a little louder that standard so something like that may suit you. It however has quite a deep bassy tone when decelerating at low revs.

    Its still of the 'straight through' type though, so I dont think performance will be affected if I'm right?

    I've just puchased a Remus Centre and backbox now though as its too quiet for me lol!
