  • Scorpion exhaust,which one?

    Is it worth buying a cat back system,or would i be better saving a bit more cash for a turbo back to get a full 3".Does the cat back system sound good?.

    Cheers

    Surly the cat back system is cheaper as it's only from the cat and the turbo back is from the turbo

      Save up more and get the full turbo back system.

        The catback should sound more or less the same as a turbo back but you wont gain as much bhp due to leaving the standard cat on. Its mainly the backbox what gives you the noise.

          do the replacement cats pass mot's?? or do you have to hope they dont spot them or put the original one on for the test.
          just a thought.

                if you are refering to "sports cat" - NOT necessarily.

                With regards the OP's original question:- Cat back exhausts simply as their name suggests, back upto the cat and in your case the VX supplied main cat and I assume you will still have the VX fitted pre-cat. These really make no difference to performance, they are merely a half way house before going for the FULL system ie. turbo back exhaust which is the remaining pieces. Please note though, you would have to get the corresponding pieces from the same manufacturer to ensure they fit! The only real effect 'cat backs' have or could have is it may look more pleasing to the eye and make a wee bit more noise - hth

                Full turbo back exhaust with a decent sports cat all the way IMO - you wont look back but they aint cheap
