How Do i get my clio 1.2 to sound half as good as this?



  Clio 1.2 16V
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhbcViDvtMQ

I kno its a 182 with a kit that doesn't exist for 1.2's ( yes i searched ) but i was wondering if i can get something a little close to it. that nice clean sound but deep enough to sound like its a little upgraded.

Any help? And roughly cost and what i'm looking for exactly?

It is mostly induction noise to be honest! I dont think you will get close to that with a 1.2, raw engine power comes into play as well in the noise

Thats a AAS custom Exhaust (from newcastle) With Decat.

Guessing any decent exhaust ppl could make you a system

The non sport stealth is very quiet imo, even with the straight through centre pipe.

so in response to the video i threw up from youtube, the non sport stealth version is the most natural sounding exhaust for the 1.2?

anybody agree?

Just get a custom exhaust done up, will be better as you can tell him how loud you want it etc then he just wont be alot of baffles in the back box :)

I got my system off ebay, its not as raspy as the above as its still got the cat on it. It pops and bangs lots and isn't over the top like some of them are.

Think it was £180 ish with lifetime warranty and its been over a year with no issues the guy is nice to deal with also if you do have any issues.

I will try and get a vid of it and a link to the ebay shop if you want.

if you can, thanks.

if i was searching ebay, what exactly am i searching for in specific for sounds i want my car to make when i step on the gas. i dont want it to rumble all over the place and hurt passengers ears. jus a mild deep hum ( not too deep tho ).

I will PM you a link mate for ebay if i can find it, I will post up a vid tommrow for you of the noise inside the car and outside. its only when you put your foot down its makes alot of the noise.

I have got a 3.5 ish tip which is a nice size he also does other tail pipe desgins.

Plummer does the system you have come with a silencer on the centre section? or is it something you opted for.

wow them ktec exhausts sound wild!!

but i think its a bit much. i need a real subtle touch with a hint of deepness at the same time.

What ive got mate full piper ;) Unsilenced no baffles no backbox completley straight through if you want loud lol.

In my opinion if you dont want to go and get a custom exhaust done id say an off the shelf piper with the silencers etc in. Or the k-tec they do a super sports version or a sport version with an extra silencer in to keep it that little bit quieter for you.

I originally tried to get it without (the "super sport" version)
But eventually got the "sport" version which also has a silencer on the centre section. ;)

It's louder in the car than it is out, basically you hear the car when you see it.
It's not one of those exhausts you hear from miles away! :rasp:
Plus I would imagine it's a bit quieter with the cat on but I couldn't say for sure.

yes exactly like @rt's.

@rt what did you do to yours?

Its subtle but so mean at the same time. yes exactly like @rt's.

Nice JOB.
