This is a very much talked about subject, depends on how noisey you want, be warned a noisey back bax can cause a lot of drone in the car and you will wich you had not bought it!

If you want loud the the scooobyworld afterburner, not so loud is the scoobyworld ninja.
there are models by magnex which are not too loud ( the 6x4 oval is nice) mongoose, hks, look in any parts catalogue the list goes on!

If you replace the centre section with a non resonated section this will make louder still !
You will also by replacing the centre section and backbox help the system breat more and gain some more horse power, at the same time replacing the panel filter will help too.

have a look at
www.scoobyworld.co.uk (they have sound clips)
www.scoobymania.co.uk
www.jap-innovations.fsnet.co.uk
www.tsl-motorsport.co.uk
for a start.
Have a look around and go to a fem meets/shows before you shell out and have a listen to a few, ask someone to take you for a spin, cos there iare so many to choose from and mistakes can easily be made

HTH

Have to say, I have the Vortex after burner... sounds good as far as I'm concerned, and not much noise to be heard inside.....(unless you have the windows open and go through a tunnel... )

You can still have a conversation and be heard, which isn't too good if I have my mum in the car.....

Personal choice though....

I'm going for the Ninja cat back system from Scooby World as the sound files made the exhaust sound rather lovely And judging by the review in Max Power with the power increases, it's well worth the cash [/url]

As with Pete have WR sport Prodrive back box which sounds good - but not too loud on long journeys as I do 12 - 15k miles on business a year - will be fitting a full sports cat system T75 from Power engineering but intend to keep the same backbox unless it shows up some problems on the RR

very nice System the T75 8) good idea keeping your Prodrive back box, save yourself 275 on the T75 back box hope you have no problems.
