Making my punto sound better/louder..

Alrite chaps and chapettes. I want to make my punto sound louder/better, to make it a bit more interesting, but dont really know how. I dont want to change the exhaust, as its a pretty new one anyway (bog standard admittedly). Any suggestions at all? Cheers

Re: Making my punto sound better/louder..

id go for an induction kit, but then again i have never fitted one to a car.

i just rev my stilo hard and get a little turbo whistle from it - that sounds sporty enough lol

try to find a decent setup that wont slow you down either

Stay away from k&n, go for gsr! Fitting is easy.

Re: Making my punto sound better/louder..

yeah i suppose an induction kit to give you a bit of engine noise... but an exhaust is really the way to go for sound... if youd got an exhaust from a sporting/ active sport they sound raspy rather than chavvy

your exhaust sounds nice tris , its a subtle raspy noise as opposed to wake the neighbours up chav style

Re: Making my punto sound better/louder..

I like the sporting exhaust idea - would all three sections of the exhaust need replacing for full effect? Could i get away with replacing just the rear section? I really wanna steer clear of the chavvy noise, just want like an amplified engine noise really.

Re: Making my punto sound better/louder..

I think the back box is the same, but the centre section is different. Is your car an 8v or 16V?

its a one piece system i think but you could just get the back box and get it welded (not a big job), im sure they sound better because they have like a drainage hole of them. Amplified engine noise though... a GSR kit would definately give you that + more power a K&N or similar would give you noise but a decrease in power!

Re: Making my punto sound better/louder..

i think the 8v exhaust is better than the 16v as it only has one silencer
if you can afford it get a supersprint b/box it'll give you more power and not very loud untill you floor the throttle

Re: Making my punto sound better/louder..

if all you want is noise, just drill some holes in your air box, in front of filter, its free

Ta i had sig turned off! doh!
To be honest if you are going to buy a whole new system, you are best off getting a stainless steal one that will last the life of the car.
