Hello all, after my exhaust started rattling, discovered it was the rear box. The insides were rattling around like stones in a tin can. So after pricing parts, I decided to go for a Universal Stainless Steel Box from RAGE. I went for the single 3inch DTM. It has a very deep sound and kinda "thumps" with the sound of the 8 valve. I like it. Hope you like it.
Jorge, at first I thought it was a bit low, but 'cos it's mounted to the original exhaust fixings, unfortunately it doesn't go any higher. Jason77 has a box from rage and it sits at the same level. It also gets really hot, so don't want it to melt the valance.
lookin by the pix there it does lookas though it's kinda low... mine's about 1/2 inch from the top of the tail pipe dent on the rear apron... i'd like to take a look at how they've mounted the unit... I fitted my own and i know what i did to make it fit snugly. and i reckon they've done it a bit differently... i Gotta see!!!
BTW it does look good, maybe wee bit low mor me tho wink
Hi J, the box is mounted using the original rubber etc. It could be raised, but it will catch the rear plastic under tray and melt it. Yours kinda comes out at an angle which avoids hitting things. Have to say, it does look low on the pics, but in real life it looks OK. If I raise it, I'll have to cut a bit off the plastic tray. It is only 1 inch from the valance believe it or not.
Henry, what make is your exhaust? I really like it as it a similar style to the OE fitment. Mine is starting to rust nicely- the outer coating of the back box is peeling away so I'm browsing for a new one in readiness.
I've had a twin DTM Rage zorst fitted on my 1.8 16v for a while but am not v happy with how it's hanging, so to speak. I probably would've been better off going for a single tailpipe with a narrower box. It sounds pleasing though and so I will do what I can to adjust it before giving up on it and buying a Supersprint!
