  • Goodbye Remus - Hello Cobra!

    Hi folks, so I've gone from a Remus 3 piece and sports cat (single exit) to a Cobra 3" resonated turbo back decat (nurburgring).

    At first the idea of swapping the Remus for anything else was 'Emotional' lol but I have to say the louder deep tone of this set up and the grin on my face is totally beyond my expectations

    Unfortunately for unknown reasons the diffuser I painstakingly spray painted Matt black has turned grey in parts

    I am thinking to buy the same as you, I was considering last month, what is your opinion? And where did you buy it?

    It looks really nice and awesome quality

        I like the cobra systems but the tone for Remus is better imo

          Thank you, I am very impressed with the tone, I am glad I went for the resonated version of this as it seems to be around the same volume of as my old Remus 3 Piece, although that was more raspy - I would recommend a 3" system if you are to go beyond stage 3 at some point in the future, this upgrade has come out purely due to need and I wish I had thought about this a while back when upgrading my exhaust system.

          I brought mine through my tuner as he was carrying out maintenance on my car at the time.

          I am actually going to get it mapped and dyno'd tomorrow along with some tweaks so will try and take some vids of it.

              isn't the remus backbox 57mm ?

              when you go full 3"(76mm) will the remus backbox be restrictive

                  I got the diffuser from Ebay, was a perfect fit for the VXR

                  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-C...UAAOSw-vlVkp~Y

                  I was informed that the setup I had before would be restrictive hence the complete upgrade

                  I took a vid today but the quality isn't great as there was a lot going on in the background I will have a stab at it some point later
