    Default Sportex or Scorpion

    Hi everyone,

    Can anyone show me a pic of their Vec C with a 4" exit backbox. I'm torn between the sportex 4 x 3" oval which looks very similar to the standard SRI backbox and the 4" round version from Scorpion. I prefer the OE modified look so am a bit worried the scorpion one will look a bit daft.

    Thanks.

    That looks 10 times better than I thought it would. Swayed towards 4" scorpion system. Thanks for the pic mate.

    Ended up getting the sportex 4" oval back box, it was the closest to factory I could find and fits perfectly in the SRI rear lower skirt. Just one quick question though, around 4000 rpm I get this very audible whistling metallic noise, is this a trait of sportex back boxes?

    It might sound a bit rough until it beds in a bit. Sure all the joints are good?
