I bought one last year and fitted it to my T-Spark - fitted perfectly (once we got the sleeve to fit my late PH2 car.....but there was no problem when I rang to point out it didn't fit initially). It was well made and sounded lovely - not too noisy but louder than standard and a great price.....you realise you're paying brand tax when you see the price of some of the Italian systems there or go to the likes of Autodelta! The tail pipe is very nice in chrome stainless....not sure if it would be interchangeable or not though.

I agree with all the above, had mine fitted for about a year now. I had the big square cut off and a rolled-out simple round welded on instead, much more subtle and suits the car better in my opinion. OI000149.jpeg

My experience is that it was very light and simple to fit, much, much lighter than the standard set up with a nice tone on my TS. The only problem I have encountered is that being very light it can rattle around a bit and I am looking into PU bushes to stop the movement.
For the price it’s good value

First thing I did was fit one to mine, managed to negotiate on price as I order a system for my other car as well! Only scary but was fitting it with the car on creaky stands! Sounds amazing without sound boy racerish!

I have a PH2 and and wondered whether there were any obvious things to look out for when fitting the cybox on my spider 2.0 TS ? I am starting the job tomorrow ...

Ive got a Cybox on my Spider and agree with all the above RE: ugly tail pipe.

They sound really good higher up in the revs and when accelerating and decelerating, the trade of is if youre sat at 1800rpm cruising along at 45mph on some of the countries longer A roads it does get a little droney not boy racery but less comfortable than stock system on the ears.

They seem to be well resonated though, they go deftly quiet when lifting off the throttle and have a nice growl when you punch the throttle again.

Very satisfied for the money

There is no break in the front pipe to attach the front of the cybox system to - might only be late ph2 like mine was though (2002).....I am no expert on different phases of production other than the fugly ph3 front end!). If you've told them the age of your car they should have supplied a sleeve - you cut the pipe, fit the sleeve and that bolts to the system.

Well - box fitted by my go to mechanic yesterday , slightly louder than I expected but so much more involved than the original - as said above great price and I am pleased with the investment. :party:

Any pictures of it installed? I'm thinking of getting one this year, just not too sure about the square tailpipe....
