    Default After market exhausts

    Hi all

    I have been toying with the idea of getting an aftermarket exhaust system for the 1.9 but so far have only found the cobra sport exhausts to fill my needs.
    Primarily I want the two back boxes and a slight rumble under accleration but nothing that will drone at motorway speeds, my tyres do enough of that for me as is. Any suggestions and personal experience will be valued

    I have a 1.8 petrol and did fit a twin exhaust, which i think is what your doing. Althoigh it looked great and sounded lovely on tick over, when moving the drone was just so annoying at anything over 30mph. It had to go and i now have a standard one back on. This was a vertually straight through system and i dont think the car was built for that and as i say mine is a 1.8 so things may be different for yours. I have been given the two back boxes from a 2.2 and will try fitting just the right box to my standard system to that elusive twin smoke plumes on cold mornings soon.

    I have the 1.9 too. How about the scorpion system that's popular on here. Makes a nice noise when you put your foot down but otherwise very quiet. Comes with an optional cat replacement pipe if you want it a bit louder...

    I have a 1.9 also, had mine custom made and looks pretty much like the Scorpion system. You can have the boxes fitted to suit your needs,.. mine make a very subtle boom/rumble as the power is pressed, but as RichM's, nice and quiet - I asked for no extra noise, but it did come with a little. All in for £280.

    Seeing as your in Luton.. St Albans is close enought to see the guys at Top Gear (Powerflow dealer). You will get exactly wheta your looking for with regards to twin boxes and teh sound level too

    I had a cat back system for my Vectra B estate.. reasonable price too

    On my C I have a Jetex system as suggested by BSR.. using their frontpipe and sports cat. I went to Top Gear to have them fabricate and fit my Astra VXR centre exit tailpipe

    Was you thinking of twin tailpipes or single tail pipes? Only reason i ask is that i have the pair of twin tailpipes from my Jetex system i didn't use.. looking to sell them

    I think it was about £450 from a seller on eBay brand new. Can't compete with the price Chewy paid though if that's a cat back system.

    Cat back is what I'm after really but I'd settle for the twin back boxes only, heard the Y peices are a tad pricey though. Will have to pay the guys in St Albans a visit though and see what they can do for me

    MIJ quoted me £375 for a cat back system I need to get it booked in. In the end I couldn't justify spending £500 on a scorpion.

    Gotta say Chewy your vec does look good in silver with the SRI tail lights.
