    Thank you mate appreciate that yours is definitely the sound I'm after its just figuring out with configuration I like

    In one of your vids it sounded a bit like a cobra not that keen on that

    And then in this video it sounds too quiet

    The description I put on the 1st post video says resonated mid section and the other 2 are non res mid section, all of those videos have the sport cat in as I bought the decat pipe after those videos.

    There is one video on there without the back box and it sounds terrible (maybe that is the one you mean sounds like a cobra) it is very hard to video the actual sound/volume/tone as my recording equipment (GoPro Hero 3) and your speakers on pc or phone will distort the true sense.

    The video where the exhaust is really quiet was due to a **** up on Blue Flames part, they sent the back box from a european order which has to have a baffle plate in the rear box for emissions and power restrictions so it was limiting what power courts could tune it to, this is why they removed the back box and used a boroscope to find the baffle plate, Blue Flame rectified the order immediately and sent me a replacement back box which had no problems with the tuning.

    If you fancy a Jolly to Great Yarmouth I am happy to take you out in the car but alas I fear you are millions of miles away

    Most welcome always happy to help where I can.

    Unfortunately there is a reason I have no videos of the decat pipe fitted and that is I buggered it up at a track day I had removed the decat and fitted the cat again and stupidly did not move it out the way enough when I brought the car down off the jack it kinda landed on the non flanged end and bent it and at a cost of £100 to replace it I never got round to it, it is not just a simple straight piece of pipe with a flange on the end and it was madrel bent which kinda means BF have to make a new one to their jig and they have stopped doing anything for production cars and will not make me a new one.

    Downsides to a discontinued part I guess.

    Heard a 3 inch cobra turbo back the other day and wasn't very impressed to say the least

    Didn't seem overly loud just didn't have the rasp of the piper that I like

    Heard a Milltek recently too, wasn't that keen on that either but preferred that to the cobra

    Annoying thing is i can't find any vids for the blueflame or the enhance performance on an astra
    I'd be the opposite on that. I'd only want rasp at the very top of the rev range if at all. Down low I prefer deep tone.

    Here's a modified 3" resonated turbo back Cobra with sports cat for further confusion:

    Might not be to your taste though
