    Exhausts

    would i benefit fitting a non res centre pipe to my act ?
    i already have a scorpion back box on and want to put a pre cat pipe on as well.
    i dont want to change the cat for now as funds are low.
    cheers
    will

    if funds are low then just do the precat as that is a definite improvement

    the non resonated is purely just for sound so only u can say if u want to improve on that

    save for a full 2.5" system is my advice

    with me having a scorpion back box already(been on a week) would a non res pipe make that much difference mate?

    yes it will make it considerably louder

    the central silencer is the main silencer so take it out the equation and the noise goes up

    EDIT: ooooh local too

    coupes had 189 or thereabouts standard

    we should be having our next regional rolling road day in Novemeber or thereabouts so u may be interested in getting the car on some trustworthy accurate rollers around that time to find out for sure
