    Default Vectra c 1.8 vvt back box /Silencer

    Hello
    I've recently brought a Vectra c 2008 exclusive just need some advice the back box on it sounds abit meaty it looks pretty new but still sounds louder than it should I am thinking of replacement of the back box silencer can any one assist on which is the correct one as I've seen several.
    The rest of the system is fine as it's had a new flexi in etc
    Thanks

    Turn down tip is if your car doesn't have a hole or arch cut out for the tip.... ideally you want one with a straight exhaust tip if you have the above described rear exhaust arch/hole

    If it looks original maybe someone has taken all the inners out if there is no sign of a hole ,so making it an empty shell

    Yeah I do have pics but not sure how to upload yeah I did that but ended up getting a new clamp but no leaks still sounds beefy when I rev and you can hear it in the back box if that makes sense
