    Default Quiet GSi

    Having recently changed my Vectra b 2.6 GSi for a Vectra c 3.2 GSi, I am finding the new car too quiet compared to the previous one which was fitted with a Remus centre section on the exhaust. Does anyone know if its possible to get a similar thing for the new Vectra? Or any other low cost suggestions? Thanks.

    Get a custom job to boost the sound level - then you can taylor it to what you want in both looks and sound.

    well i spent a bit over 500 on my cat back system, its nice, deep sound, but as u say, not as loud as on my old veccy b, which had a cat back powerflow too. i can still remove the middle box to make it louder, but i ll wait for it to carbon up a bit. good luck!

    I'm happy with the loudness of the custom system on mine - any louder and I would be upsetting the neighbours (£400 by the way).

    Thanks for the advice guys. What system have u got Swatty? I was hoping to get a direct replacement for the centre section like the Remus I had before, because the standard back boxes are fine. A complete back system would be nice, but cant afford it at the moment!!

    I know the new V6's are supposed to be a lot quieter than the old ones in the B.

    Hi GSI550, I posted the link below when I got it done (you get a wide choice of tail pipes - from normal to bonkers). Its cat back by the way.
