Quick exhaust question

I need a new back box for my 1999 turbo impreza. I would like it to sound deeper at idle and accelerating. Don't want it too loud though and defo no motorway boom. I'm going to keep the original cats for mot's sake so it'll be a cat back system. A bit of increase in power would be nice. Have listened to clips on scoobyworld site and am impressed with ninja system. Choices down to 1) ninja, 2) blitz nur spec , 3) hayward and scott, 4)magnex, 5) afterburner. Anyone able to offer advice with my requirements. Thanks in advance

Good selection

Magnex may be a bit to quiet

Heard that from others about magnex. Would afterburner be too noisy? Basically want low speed thrum to be deeper along with more noise accelarating but not too loud.

Thanks for advice, will have to try to listen to some at shows. All sound good on mpeg. I have a magnex on a 106 gti and its very subtle but don't know if that is too subtle for low speed thrum on scooby. Decisions!!!

i have the blitz nur spec and this thing is annoying . for me and the people around me
ive had letters from the noise .it has a nice rumble to it but on motorways i find it can get a bit to much
ive listened to some of the sound clips and i dont think thay do the back box justice
its alot noisier lol
hence why im looking at a new system

where are you located? (i'm in andover - hants)

i have a magnex in the shed if you want to bolt it on and try - good low rev deep(ish) note but more quiet at speed so not a bad choice. i now have a ninja which is deeper and louder at both low and high revs.

I can whole heartedly recommend a Hayward & Scott Scoobysport Back Box. Lovely piece of kit that IMHO gives a superb sound and very much an understated look. If you add a Magnex resonated centre section too then the sound level will increase but its certainly not what I consider to be over the top.
