    How to make a straight through exhaust quieter?

    I bought a mk5 astra 1.4 sxi with a straight through exhaust, it is to loud and i dont like it, could anyone help me how to make this quieter, while avoiding to much cost, also the exhaust tips are dual and come out the centre like a vxr. Anyone know how i can make it quieter, thanks.

    The exhaust is to loud even at 2,000 revs it gets to loud, so you cant even get to 30 mph to drive casually without being loud lol

    Is it an aftermarket centre section?

    Cybox and GT3 via eBay sell them, though you may have to e-mail them for pricing. I would guess at under £100 delivered for the silenced centre section from either of these suppliers based on what I paid for a full catback.

    Need to get under car pics to see what you are running, or to see what your best option is. every exhaust system varies. Best contacting a supplier to discuss your options and send them a few pics of your existing setup
