    s/s backbox for gsi

    hi im thinking of buying a s/s back box for my gsi but i can only find cat back exhaust's. so i went up to a exhaust place up the road to me and they said they can make me one for £150 +vat or a cat back for £320 +vat . but one of them said to just have the back box's as the cat back would be too loud for the kids. i want some thing sporty but not over the top. is £150+vat a good price ????
    any replys welcome

    Hi fella. I also have a milltek resonated cat-back fitted. I was worried about the noise for my young babies, this was the reson for the extra centre box. Not a problems at all quiet enough when you drive it normally, then sounds nice if your on your own giving it some beans.

    Yup, very happy with my Milltek catback. I have the non-resonated and it isn't too loud. Got it for £287 delivered on the group buy that Gav did a while back. If you go for a Milltek, contact Thorney and mention the AOC and the recent Group buy, they may give you some discount.

    I don't think so, the bore is different and I'm not sure if they do a converter.
