Turbo Back Vs Cat Back on 1.4 T-jet 150

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience, I've been looking at supersprint kits, http://www.supersprint.com/en/GB/pro...093E280BA.aspx

and wondering the pros and cons of running the catback vs the turbo back.

Now I know the Turbo back will be noisier and probably get better performance, but I want to know what your experience is with either, and if it makes that much a difference.

Re: Turbo Back Vs Cat Back on 1.4 T-jet 150

I'm currently running a cat-back, custom from longlife, I love it, sounds great, pops and bangs, going back for a turbo back with screamer pipe in April, they say it adds up to 10 BHP and will sound better and backfire a he'll of a lot, I'll let you know how I get on

Instant MOT fail, VOSA impound if they catch you. "Did you notify your insurance sir?" from the attending traffic officer.

That aside, how is it noise-wise?

You'd expect it to be a bit noisier. But remember, turbos attenuate a lot of the noise: if you want a really noisy car, revert to n/a.

Quite the contrary, I want it as stealthy as possible,

Cat back, then, for stealth.
