View Full Version : SS Pipe

19th March 2001, 09:17
Help!!! I have an sti v wagon.
Someone recently rear ended me and as a result my exhaust needed replacing. As I wasn't paying I thought I'd try the full ss
system. Great, I can feel the power difference but it's just waaaaaaaay too loud.
How can I keep as much of the power increase as possible and lose as much of the noise?
Will a new bb do the trick and if so which one? I did think of trying the aftermarket one Prodrive do for the P1, but they were so
unhelpfull when I spoke to them I don't think
I'll bother.
Cheers Chux

Give Pete @ Scoobysport a ring. They do a quieter version of the backbox.

Aswell as a quieter version put some extra carpet in the boot http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

A handy hint is to get some Dynamat or similar (car stereo sound deadening material) and line the boot with it, along with a nice boot carpet!! http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/smile.gif

I have a very nice Prodrive boot mat in my car. Bought it from Jim Childs of Cheam Motors. Have a look at http://www.cheammotors.co.uk for contact details.

Hope this helps

Will this work even though, as a wagon, I havn't got a boot per say.

I've heard that 5 doors are worse than 4 doors for noise because the open back amplifies the sound. Try Andy's/Anders tip of fitting some sound deadening material.

Or, my mate has a SS DP with magnex centre with the resonator and a Miltek BB and his system is very quiet compared to my full SS system. He can hear my car but I can't hear his when we accelerate together http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/smile.gif

I have a ScoobySport backbox and downpipe, along with a Magnex centre section with a resonator.

It's much quieter than a full ScoobySport system, and hasn't really affected the performance.

It may be worth having a word with Pete at ScoobySport, as they can get centre sections with resonators, or quieter backboxes.

When my car gets to about 3 years old, I will look at getting a centre section with a hi-flow cat. Haywood & Scott (makers of the ScoobySport system) can more or less make anything you want!

Hope this helps
