Decent saving over the big name exhausts, what's the sound like, raspy, bassy?

Yeah is a great saving as I'm happy with the noise. As long as lasts is worth while. I'd say its a low toned raspy noise. It sounds angry and when in higher revs its certainly more raspy than bassy

As soon as its uploaded I'll post a link to my photo bucket of a video of the car being revved on my drive. Phone recording never really does it justice but should give you an idea

Sounds nice, very raspy I would say, not too different to a milltek.
Yeah videos never give you the full idea of the sound, but that does sound fairly loud! snigger

I just put a resonator on mine last month to make it a bit quieter, had a non resonated milltek for past few years.

Thanks buddy. Yeah is a loud one which typically is most annoying at 70 down the motorway gives my ears a bashing how much does a resonator quiet it down? I may end up doing the same. I want it louder than stock but don't want to get out with earache after a long trip

Oh dear, that sounds annoying. Resonator takes the edge off a bit and makes it slightly more refined, though it's still loud compared to standard. Luckily I don't use the motorway that much. Sometimes you can find a speed where it will get quiet(er), but might be well above 70.

Sounds like that's the route for me to take next then as I live in a small village and to get anywhere it's on a motorway and my options are 65mph or about 5000rpm in 5th would be my guess can imagine that's gonna be daft speed. Dou g that in 4th would just drink more juice stress the engine out. I'm still happy with purchase and would recommend to anybody living in a city not to much motorway miles.

Hi Devon how are you getting on with the toyo?

I've had greif with mine. the tailpipe sits deep into rear valance and it has come loose a couple of times at rear join. after about 2 months the sports cat does nothing. my post cat lambda follows the pre cat one so they seem like a total waste. i now need a new cat for this years MOT.

Hi buddy so far so good passed the mot no issues last week although I don't like how far it sits back from the rear bumper. Love the sound but can also hear a little rattle on tick over that ifi lift the revs to just over 1000 it goes so what that be loose lamps? Annoying though. Overall if say for the money been good not great but good

just bought a new sports cat for mine. apparently not getting it remapped when fitted is what has killed the cat. they should tell people that.
