    Hi all ;)

    Been looking into getting a cat-back exhaust but not sure on what size exhaust. Emailed Jeff at pipe werx,told him i didn't want anything too noisy/droning but wanted to notice the difference when when accelerating.
    He suggested a 2.5" with standard look twin exit back box for £375 all in fitted. Has anyone here had this size fitted and did they notice much noise difference or do i need a down pipe/de-cat aswell?

    Cheers,Tony

    Std system is 2.5"... Miltek is 2.75" iirc... downpipe makes more of a difference to the engine than a cat back... helps bring EGTs down making the engine a happier place and the ECU won't be fighting the heat so much meaning you will have your power for longer... aftermarket downpipes are typically 3" and reduce down to 2.5"

    Tony you could get the same set up as mine (but twin tips), it was really quiet on the motorway inside the car but sounded meaty outside on boost ;)

    I've been tempted to take the middle box out myself too but currently my car is quite loud outside but quiet inside and i think the middle box is helping to keep the booming away in the cabin

    I had the system put on ages ago so i've forgot the price, it was when Ian Birch was at Pipewerx, from memory though i think it was around £350-£400.
