ive got an ashley competition3inch backbox which i bought a while ago because the quote on the site was "loud as fuck". But on my 1.2 it aint. Its a bit deeper than standard but cant really hear it wen the revs get up.

How cud i make it louder, dont mind it being raspy i just wanna get noticed.

Wud it be best getting rid of the cat or replacing the centre with a straight pipe?

Any1 have their 1.2's very loud?if so wot setup you got?
cheers for the help

well the straight pipe replaces the original centre section with has a silencer on it. Running decat is a risk you're going to have to take. Although the straight through centresection and cat will make it louder.

buy a straight through pipe or get a garage to cut out the sliencer and weld a pipe in place.

40-80 on ebay for mild / stainless direct fit pipes.

wouldn't bother with a decat tbh, will be loud with a straight thru.

I agree with some of the points in this thread BUT you are right ppl could put them across better to you.

My personal opinion would be to spend money elsewhere but if you really want it that bit louder do as was suggested and straight through pipe..

A wee note, In my old XE GSI corsa I had a straight through pipe, no cat just backbox..The noise done my head in and I fitted a centre silencer and It sounded loads better but still loud but a better sort of loud if you get me...

DO you have an Induction kit? If not get one and that will make a slight difference to the sound, not much but better..Thats what I would spend my money on if I was you..

Don't let a few bad comments put you off CS..

When did he ask for people opinions on where do spend his money?

If u've got nothing decent to say or ur just gonna slate him, why post?

He simply asking to make his exhaust louder, no need to rip him.

As people have said, put a straight thru centre section on it, if it's still too quiet put a de-cat on it. If it's STILL not loud enough, put a different back-box on it

Im not going to slate you, your money your choice at the end of the day, I've got my views but I'll keep them to myself.

To answer your point, There are exhaust noise level restrictions and roadside checks on emissions may well include this test aswell. Just be careful

not yet maybe, but if you take the cat off i's likely you will fail the emissio test, so you will be then

It also just pisses them off and will make them likely to do a road side check on random things, pointtin out silly things and getting you points on your license etc

Iv got a straight thru centre section and a twin 2.5" back box, its fucking loud and unfortunately has landed me with a 30 quid fine. Think about it (which is wat i didint do) can u get away with a loud exhaust in your area, if you can, will your neighbours complainlike fuck. Im speaking from experience ever since i got my zorst fitted iv been pulled by the cops and have cops knocking at my door. The way my neighbours see it is im the only one on our street with a modified car so any loud music or loud exhaust noise is me. Is it really worth it? I dont think its worth 30 quid everytime the police stop me, or the hassle with police at my door every month.
