Afterburner Vortex or Ninja

Hi all Hope everyone had a good weekend

I know this might end up coming down to personal preference but without being bias which is the better or the two and which is louder :?

I can second what Scooby-tc says - I don;t have a Blitz on mine but have been tempted a few times to go for it

Awesome piece of kit I would however go with what Cat has suggested. Get yourself along to a meet and listen to some Exhausts

Hi,

as far as i know, the vortex is a bit louder than the ninja.

I have a vortex (angled exit) on my wagon and it sounds superb. If you want about as loud as you can get, then go for the Nurspec or a 5Zigen fireball. both are pretty antisocial

I'm used to the noise now

having a wagon, it's a bit boomier inside, at 80mph, roughly 3k rpm, it's not too bad at all, open it up and it growls like a possessed grizzly bear!

it is actually at it's most offensive for driving at 30mph in 4th (about 1.5k rpm) where it is quite boomy. the first couple of days it actually made me nauscious, but i soon got used to it.

I know that the way i have described it, it sounds incredibly offensive, but it makes me grin everytime i drive the car, and you do soon get used to it. I want the decat centre now though as much for the extra increase in burbly-super-nice-fun-noise-superb (my jap to english translation of scooby burble) and for the extra gee gee's

It's a superb pipe though and the angled exit one looks very cool!
