    Question Exhaust Note

    I have a SRiT and I have a magnex precat, std cat, milltek resonated cat back

    I want my car to sound like the VXR in the following clip, what else do I have to fit to achieve the burble sound.

    I have noticed a lot of VXR with remus exhausts also have a burble sound when accelerating

    What do I need to be buying to achieve that sound on my SRi T astra g

    try changing the cat for the 200 cell sports cat. less restrictive and allows more power and a bit more noise.

    on my mates 2005 SRi turbo he has a sport cat with a non resonated centre pipe (racing tube) not sure if it is remus or scorpion centre and a scorpion back box, it is loudish and gives a nice burble sound. You need to get rid of the resonated centre for any real noise and maybe look at a smaller resonated backbox

    agree with steve for noise ya dont want a resonated exhaust. imo milltek are quieter than most exhausts. but remus exhausts do sounds the dogs nuts lol

    I originally got the milltek because I wanted it quiet on tickover and whilst driving around upto 30 mph, the resonated milltek sounds good above 30 mph but the burble and popping noise would just finish the system off nicely, If I could achieve this some how I will be more than happy


    if you have a video clip and know the setup, please post and let me know
