    Question Exhaust suggestions

    Hey guys am after a beefier sound to my car and was wandering what backbox to buy next?

    I've currently got a magnex box on my 1.8 sport which I do like the sound of but it sounds raspy at times and only sounds how I'd like it to sound at 3,500rpm lol, I don't want to go chavy loud just beefy

    pointless considering hes got the X18XE1 therefore mani dont have a cat



    you have a few choices

    cheapest - non-resonated centre section

    middle - decat

    costly - sports cat


    Personally id only opt for the non-resonated centre and a sports cat, sports cat can be had for £100 for a weld in jobbie, or £220 for a complete front pipe in stainless steel with sports cat included.

    centre section - anything from £50-80

    sports cats are only a ton and get it welded in - best of both worlds, legal and will pass an emissionts test

    decat at your own risk, not strictly illegal but without a cat youll struggle to pass any emissions based test, remember the MOT isnt the only time you can be tested

    err on the side of caution and still reap the power improvements and sports cat it!

    should still get a little added tone

    if u want more noise, then ditch the daft rear silencer - either for a smaller one or better still just a length of pipe with the tailpipe welded on.
