    reccommend me a backbox!

    Currently got a middle section straight through pipe and an irmscher backbox, with the twin tailpipes cut off, and one brought round to my centre exit as you will be able to see in pics.

    Trouble is, its all drown out by engine noise, i want something with a bit more volume, but obviously dont want to appear a chav.

    So something louder but not crazy loud. Maybe that is quiet on a tickover or 2000rpm, but gets louder around 3500?

    Dont care what it looks like because its going to go to my vxr tailpipe like my current system.

    Also videos would be much appreciated

    any excuse!

    It's essentially the same setup as you straight through centre section reason i'm saying this is because mine was made from long-life the backbox itself is the "Mid sport" should you choose to have one done there :P lol
