ive got the standard exhaust on at the moment, i think i might saveup and get something a bit beefier. the twinport 1.4 sounds exactly like the 1.0 and 1.2s. i waited ages to buy the new twin port cos i thought it might osund a bit beefier, but hey!

its the inlet manifold on the old XE 1.4 and 1.6 16v units that make em sound great.

the new twin port i suspect sounds the same as the 1.0 and 1.2 16v units.

can't make them sound like the 1.6 and 1.4 16v XE units.

I got my box drilled with just the standard air filter in at the moment, does a k&n filter really make that much difference?

Exhaust will do it mate.

Thing is K&N's aren't made for sound, my 1.2 8v with K&N didnt sound all that good on its own but with a nice system it added a more deep tone to the exhaust.

You could pick up a back box for around 60 second hand.

the noise you can hear is the timing chain going around.

mate put ya air box in and drill it, put a performance filter in (k&n, piperx, green) then it sounds beefy through-out the rev-range!! Mines a 1.6 sport and sounds like a scooby.. :D

:boggle:

the note of your engine depends on the load on it, put 5 bags of cement in your boot if you want to go 10mph but sound good:lol:
