    centre pipe question

    I am thinking about buying this intermediate pipe to go with my gt3 exhuast thats on now. Just a couple of questions?

    Will it make the sound louder? because my exhuast makes no difference

    And is the pipe legal and MOT compliant?

    Cheers

    Will make it much more rumble combined with an aftermarket backbox, won't attract too much attention though mate

    which engine do you have mate? and which backbox?

    I have a gt3 straight through full system with a oval tailpipe on my 1.6 8v and it sounds lush, just right, not too loud either but nice tone aswell not raspy or chav sound.

    HTH
