    Straight Through Exhaust.

    On my current exhaust system I have three boxes, the cat, a middle box and my backbox. Do I need the middle box? Can I just get a straight through pipe to attach onto my sports exhaust? Thanks for your help!

    Cheers for the help I will order it today. What is the correct fitting required as the end of my cat 'tube' just looks like the end of a drainpipe.

    Not too sure on the fittings mate, I have to own up and say that I got a mate to do it for me lol but you may need to buy a fitting kit for between the centre and rear sections. cost me £10 off ebay and you get springs, bolts and a gasket ring.

    I would say mine was a little loud at first but they do settle down the more mileage you put on. Defo not stupidly loud... though I did start my car in a multi-storey car park yesterday and set the alarm of an Alfa off who was parked next to me
    Morale of the story... don't buy an Alfa :P

    You can also get cybox exhausts with a silenced centre section if you want something a little more suttle

    Hahah I won't buy an alfa then. My mate has already got the middle silencer at really cheap price so I'm just going to get that. And in a stroke of luck my other mate has the peco twin dtm stainless steel backbox I want and is going to sell it cheaply to me, only problem is it's off a vectra B so will have to check it fits first! Hope it does though!
