I used to have a Vortex until I went for the ppp, so I have the prodrive back box now...

Have to say she was quite loud, turned a few heads, usually girlies (and chests out ) until they saw a girlie driving it......

They might still have stuck their chests out as they may have swung the other way........................ and their chests

I have a sound recording on my phone i can send to you if you want....

I have a 2000 Model 2Ltr Sport with full manifold back 'Afterburner Vortex',
I think the turbo would be slightly more quiet as the turbo should soften the ROAR!

PM me if your interested in hearing it as i cant transfer it to my PC whilst at work..

Gareth, I will upload it tonight for your exhaust sounds gallery.!
