Janspeed exhaust systems advice

Hi
I have a mk2 105 and have got the twin pipe janspeed backbox, although it looks nice it ain't really that loud. I was thinking maybe if I get the Janspeed intermediate pipe it may add some roar to it?

My brother has got a mk2 120 with the Janspeed intermediate pipe and Janspeed oval backbox and it is pretty loud, alot louder than mine!

What you think guys? Anyone have the janspeed intermediate pipe with the twin backbox fitted aswel?

Cheers

i think in general the oval is a fair bit louder than the twin. Not sure if getting the mid pipe would make yours louder but im probably wrong

Not mine sadly lol!

I got it all at once so i didnt get a chance to see any difference. Ive read a few people say about the twin being fairly quiet tho. Someone might be up for a swap if thats what you wanna do.

My brother had the twin backbox and at a later date added the intermediate pipe. It didn't make much difference in sound.

The sound will come mostly from the backbox and the oval is notoriously louder.

I have the Magnex 5x3 Xpower oval if you want to swap? I want something quieter
