    Afternoon,

    I've got a Milltek cat-back system on my Bora 4mo but no matter how I adjust it the back box just doesn't seem to fit well and occasional I get a mild thud from it as I go over bumps or uneven roads.

    I think a back box of a different design would be the answer.

    Current Milltek back box looks like this.

    And I notice the blue flame system looks like this.

    Few snags with that though.

    1) With the blue flame box being half the size I imagine it will be a fair bit louder than the Milltek?

    2) The joining parts are different so perhaps I'm as well getting a custom back box made up?

    All rubbers were replaced last Friday.

    Never replaced the rear sub frame or touched the mounts, all mounts are where they should be.

    No issues at the front.
