    Default Exhaust advice please spoon n1

    Hi people I currently run an 02 ep3 with unsilenced b pipe and standard backbox.

    I have bought a 2nd hand spoon n1 off eBay in very very good condition 225 inc delivery

    Iím a tad nervous that this may have been a mistake due to the b pipe unsilenced and extreme noise levels that may come from this backbox.

    Any tips on what I should do

    Curious if a 2.5 silenced b pipe will make a difference or possibly oem b pipe just donít want to put the restrictive pipe back in.

    Always wanted more noise and a top quality backbox but not ear bleeding.

    Help me lol

    I had the Supersprint unsilenced centre section with an N1 and it was loud. And I mean really loud. Startup was bad but when you hit around 4000rpm the drone was nye on unbearable.
    I swapped out for silences centre and it made it a lot more livable.

    It wasnít night and day as such. But it was easier to live with. It didnít have the ear battering high note that Spoons are famous for.
    Mine was matched with an AEM cold air so that does add a degree of noise, but the main part was the exhaust.

    No worries.

    It wasnít so loud you couldnít hear conversations or the radio, but you definitely had to speak louder than normal to be heard.
    It would drone horrendously before the silenced section went in, but wasnít anywhere near as bad once it was in. There was still a noticeable hum though at motorway speeds.
    Longer journeys before and after silencing weíre a bit tedious.

    Looks to be decent bud. Good grade of stainless and all TIG welded. Should do the job.
