New exhaust fitted

I got my new cat back and centre section decat fitted Christmas eve should have been the Monday but scoobyworld forget the decat pipe DOH !! Anyway it's all fitted now and sounds amazing so I'm saving for the the induction kit and remap now , but very happy for now. I tryed it with the bung in but it rattles alot and sounds naff. It is quite loud but it's very deep so it doesn't hurt your ears ( unlike my MG powerflow system) and it's ok as my son hasn't even noticed the sound, just got on his hands and knees to look up the tailpipe lol

Thats interesting to know that the sound is livable as i'm due to take my scoob to hayward & scott for its decat downpipe and centre section. I'm also running a ninja 2 back box.

Re: New exhaust fitted

I can't garantee it will be as liveable with a downpipe decat as well as a centre decat but it will sound amazing, it is loud outside the car and gets alot of attention but it makes you grin like the village idiot driving slowly through town and flooring through the twistys

Re: New exhaust fitted

well i'm keeping the middle cat handy for mr mot so could always re-fit it, although it will be getting a remap when fully decated so probably best to leave it off. Will update when its all on.

Should be good, so much I want to do, where to start. Handling upgrades should help too in the meanwhile. Thinking I need the sti front and rear bumpers needed as wrx are too shallow

Re: New exhaust fitted

Loud or Liveable are very subjective - everyone has their own opinions on what sounds good, what sounds loud etc.... and long may that continue

Enjoy!

Too true,for me it's a case of giving the power increase you expect of the product whilst improving the sound but not to the exstent of blue light filling your rear window

Re: New exhaust fitted

If you decat yours, you will need to remap I would say.

Best option is to sell your existing prodrive ecu which will have the Gems piggyback ecu in it as this can't be remapped and get a standard 01 wrx ecu (pick up v cheap).

Re: New exhaust fitted

i had a full decat system with no resonator/silencer on my classic. 3" downpipe, vortex centre(no resonator) and ninja back box. It was really REALLY loud. on long journeys it becamre irritating at times, but it did sound awesome! my advice to anyone would be to get a centre section with a resonator so there would be a little less cabin drone

It does pick up abit quicker but it does need a remap to get the full potential out of it but I'll get other kit together first and get it all done at the same time. Whether I'll get all my mods together including vf34 I'm not sure. It'll cost roughly 2k in parts plus fitting with the turbo 1200 without
