    try ebay the gt3 + cybox systems get well rated if you want it loud youll need a straight through cat back to exhaust (no centre silencer), a backbox alone wont be too loud what engine have you got?

    I'd go for cybox mate, i just got the backbox at the moment and on idle it sounds good. Not very loud at all. Can be a bit loud when the revs get higher. But overall its good

    I have the same car and currently looking for a new exhaust/back box. Does the cybox back box bolt straight on? Is it the same flange fitment? Or do you need the centre section too...

    Basically i don't have access to welding equipment and would like to fit it myself.

    Could someone post a link to the cybox on ebay as i can't find it for some reason... found it last week but can't now :S

    Beds_Astra: Sorry to hi-jack your thread but it saves starting another one and the answer to my question may help you too

    Google is your friend:

    http://stores.shop.ebay.co.uk/cybox-...__W0QQ_armrsZ1

    The backbox is MK4 specific so has the right fitment ready to go.

    Cheers nry.

    Does anyone know whether you can get twin versions of these? I prefer the look of two pipes coming out rather than one. If not cybox could anyone recommend another brand?

    EDIT: Ignore me... just looked further and they do a twin one

    They do loads of tailpipe designs, I got a twin 3" slashcut, check all their adverts, they can put any tailpipe on any backbox if you e-mail them.
