United-Kingdom Help with making my exhaust louder.

Hi Guys!!

I have a R56 cooper s and I have the JCW cat back. Its still not loud enough for me :-/ I still have 5 months warranty on the car left also. I looked into a sports cat but they are quite pricy. So I then looked at decats but although they are cheap, there not legal really and I don't want fault codes coming up etc and because of my warranty i dont think i could get away with a decat. Can anyone help?

Thanks

Emma.

And the car manufacturers spend millions trying to get them nice and quiet too.
Do you hate your neighbours?

Evolve sport cat

Lohen do sports cat as well


Sport cat will give you a bump in power n torque plus more pops n bangs


A decat will fail the MOT with emissions

The JCW cat back on my countryman cooper S All 4 auto is only marginally louder than the standard system, slightly louder pops. Not sure it was 750 but keeps car all Mini.

Emma,

fit a bean can to the end of your exhaust.

it is not only cheap ( make sure you eat the beans first ) but will sound brilliant and make your car go much faster.

it will also up your street cred somewhat as well.
