    Just fitted a Jetex system with a milltek 3" downpipe but find it way too loud.
    Anyone have any sugestions about a quieter option? Would like to keep the downpipe and change the cat back

    Hmmm, the front can is VERY small so its no great shock its loud.
    How long has it been fitted?.

    My car was really boomy inside with no center box but it sounded fine on the outside.

    You could try dynamatting your boot to cut some extra noise down inside the car.

    ok cheers will give that some thought

    quite surprised at the noise as i was told that jetex are one of the quietest systems

    tempted to try somthing else or even refit a standart 1.8t system to the miltek downpipe
