Exhaust Silencer question
On the stock exhaust setup, you have the Cat, then a Silencer, then a Back box. Do you need that center silencer for an MOT? I may see if can come out and some normal piping welded in place? Any advice on that front?
you don't need the silencer for the mot no
nope not needed for MOT but be warned it may become very loud as I have had a single box system with a straight through design backbox before and even with a turbo it was very loud indeed.
I have had the same issue - OK it passes the MOT but with 1 straight through silencer it becomes embarracing to put your foot down at all and also too loud to bear inside the car. It can also be quite a harsh sound too.
I'd recommend puting a straight through mid section silencer in which has almost identical flow as a straight through pipe, but will take the raspy edge off the exhaust note.
All depends on how well you get on with your neighbours :oops: :imout:
