    sports pipe

    Does anyone run a sports pipe with an irmscher backbox?
    I'd like to keep my irmy backbox and wondered just how loud it would be with a sports pipe?
    I really don't want it to be too loud but would like to do away with that massive centre section silencer!
    Just a nice exhaust note is really what i'm after.

    Not loud at all on my 1.8, very nice sound and cant even hear it when inside the car with music playing.

    I got a 1.8 with irmy backbox and sports pipe thingy. It's not loud at all. I thought it would be a lot louder but the irmy backbox isn't loud at all. It does add a very pleasing note to the exhaust though
