    Just had a full stainless steel catback twin oval exhaust fitted, thought it would be louder.....

    Since its brand new, does it have to wear in.....

    If you’re just after loud forget a proper system, these are not meant to be loud, just a little deeper in sound than a standard box. These are for performance really.

    You should have just got a 4” slash Jap style (Chav) back box if you was after that pain in the back side drone, the ones that drive you up the wall sitting on the Motorway But I don’t think that is what your after is it or is it

    Styles of backboxes don't determine how loud they are at all

    Whether the backboxes have any baffles or whether you have a mid silencer determines how noisy it is...

    The more boxes/baffles on the exhaust the quieter it will be.
