147 Air Intake/Exhaust suggestions.

Hi all, This is my first post here been a member for some time however.

Anyway I finally bought a 147 2.0 TS (2001) a few months back and been loving it. It just failed its MOT on a rear shock which has now been fixed. It also have 1 Advisory of the rear silencer seriously worn. i.e. I can put my fingers through it :P

So Im looking for a replacement rear silencer preferably stainless and after browsing this forum it seems most people are going for a supersprint. Is this really worth 350/400.
I would like to change the sound to a more raspy noise but isnt this achieved by removing the center section to a straight through pipe?

Also im looking into getting an induction kit just purely for sound and not performance gains so Is the BMC CDA the best one to go for? I dont want it too loud as I dont think the neighbours will appreciate it.

So options are...
1) Replace rear silencer with a OEM one 66
2) Replace rear silencer with a supersprint one 350/400
3) Replace rear silencer with a supersprint one and remove middle silencer 450/500
4) Replace rear silencer with a supersprint one and remove middle silencer and replace air intake with BMC CDA 650/700

Im open to suggestions as I said I really want a raspy sound but dont fancy forking out nearly 700.

Welcome to AO

You can go for a custom stainless steel catback system for less than the price of your option 2.

Just had mine done last after looking on the side after a seeing this hole

Here is a thread I did and got some pictures of the installation and I got 2 vid clip.

Hi Gazzb.

Good timing! I'm selling my old Twinspark setup.

Here's a vid: Exhaust_Blur.mov - YouTube

As you can probably tell, the raspy combo is the Supersprint backbox + unsilenced Ragazzon centre section with the GSR intake.
The intake gives the engine a richer note, the backbox a nice deep exhaust sound & the lack of silencer gives it the rasp.
PM me if you're interested.
