    .Im soory to bring this up again but as i said before my jetex exhuast system is annoying me it so quite and it feels a waste of cash. i want a roaty sound. So is there abolt on replacement that will remove my side baffel box. if this was a normal car and it was in the middle i could obviously just attach a piece of straight pipe. but it fit behind and to the right of the back box. im not saying i want hi im chav loud but i want this foot to floor and little smile comes on face loud?? HELP!! Im serious if this isnt sorted soon im going to sell the system and buy another better one

    That is probably your best bet, get a custom one, thay can more or less make it sound however you like

    I had a Powerflow cat back system made up and the sound is exactly what I was after.. explained what I wanted and they did the rest. It's probably louder than most people would want but I love it!!

    Sound like you have gone from one extreme to the other.

    Has this affected your petrol consumption in any way?

    an exhaust should have no bearing on fuel consumption whatsoever tbh

    It may be the case that on a non-turbo engine, with a badly designed manifold, you would lose some midrange torque by fitting an exhaust will less restriction than standard, which may result in reduced fuel consumption due to the engines reduced performace as you'd tend to put the welly in more ;)

    On a turbocharged car (and on a nat asp car with a properly designed manifold) you basically want the largest pipe possible to get rid of the gasses and to make the engine as efficient as possible.

    Kind of makes sense Aragorn, but I was comparing the noise you get from a peirced back box to this style of exhaust which from personal experience sank the juices from my old astra Gte.

    I suppose if the gasses ar being dispersed of optimally, there should be no reason for the fuel efficiency to change.

    WOW. !! I could do that flat out, but something is wrong

    I have managed 60 miles on £20 before, even 40 miles on a tenner is still 20mpg ish, you are probably enjoying the noise a bit too much
