    Default Couple of performance exhaust questions

    Now then all,

    Just a couple of quick questions. Most threads state that a backbox alone i.e remus will not really increase the noise or performance on a cdti. So from what I gather there are a couple more routes:

    Stealth look
    A) Get a custom exhaust from cat back with centre box removed & possibly leave original tail pipe on (sri one with stainless tip)
    Non stealth
    b) Get a custome exhaust from cat back with centre box removed & stainless backbox
    De-Cat
    c) Get a custom exhaust, remove cat & centre box & have new stainless backbox

    Could anyone tell me which would be best for sound or performance. Also will removing the cat or centre box cause any damage over time?

    Its a diesel so the mot does not require a cat - its just a soot test not emmisions.

    Just had a custom stainless steel exhaust made up for my Vauxhall Monterey 3.1 TD from the turbo charger to the tailpipe. It was custom made to my requirements i.e, sound, performance, and economy. Well impressed the company is; MIJ. Pleck Rd, Walsall, West Midlands. the web site is great, type MIJ Exhausts........

    When you say box do you mean a back box or air box? Sorry me being a doughnut
