    Smile sri 2.2dti stainless exhaust

    Hi, I have got a full stainless exhaust with twin back boxes on my car and i want to change the back boxes as i dont like them and they catch my driveway. I have have had a quote for replacing the back boxes with straight through stainless pipes with exhaust trims and was wondering if this would make any diffence to the noice level of the exhaust? As i want it to sound like it is now? Any info would be appreciated

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Do the actual back boxes catch on the floor..?

    What size and shape are they.. any pics..?

    Powerflow (and all custom places) have boxes in all shapes and sizes, so if you want it to sound the same, then replacing the exisiting ones with smaller ones (and not removing them completely) would be your best option.

    confused

    Yes they defo catch my driveway, I also have 18" wheels with lowered suspension so they are quite low. I have had a look to see if i could lift them but they are already very close to the chassis rails. The boxes have a boxer type tail pipe which i don't like.
    I thought if you removed the back boxes from a diesel it would'nt make a difference to how loud it is anyway?

    Diesels can be noisy too.

    Does it still have the centre box..?
