    Default Diesel's and aftermarket exhausts..

    ok, I'm looking into getting a new exhaust system for the vec c, but its a 2.2 diesel and I havent really heard an aftermarket system on a diesel, have heard a normal system on an Audi a4 cab when I drove it back for a customer.. anyways getting off track!

    What I want to know is has it made a performance difference and does it make your diesel sound louder (and louder, I mean the rickety noise that a diesel makes?)

    I want one that looks nice, not too loud but has a nice smooth burble...

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    My 1.9 CDTi Astra running a full decat Magnex Prototype Exhaust with Resonated Centre section.

    **** video but weather has been to poor to do anything decent yet. That is with a remap so will be slightly louder due to the more boost I am running. With just the exhaust and no other mods I saw an increase of 11bhp and 20lb-s torque.

    With a few other mods this increased quite a bit more

    I had a cat back powerflow system on my old vec and it did give a bit more ooomph! and made a nice deep rumble. The engine was no noisier either

    ald on here has a full powerflow cat back exhaust on his 1.9 and its not noticeably louder than standard and it has twin exits, if you go to powerflow they will give you the noise you are after
