I have done it , on other cars
its fine as long as you dont mind the noise in the summer with the window down,
there are no legal or mot issues
the only other thing is it will be louder because the system will be shorter and you wont be able to fit the main box in ie the back box ,
it purely up to you i think its different and i like it ,
and at the end of the day if you want to do it go for it :D

saw this done on an evo before!! obviously it must work but i always assumed it mite cause backpressure problems due to the exhaust being so short!!!??

it will definately be alot louder though i kno that atleast lol unless you magic up room for a silencer somewhere

4 stroke engines dont need back pressure

we have been through this before VIEW TOPIC :

viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1144&hilit=back+pressure" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
ah kk!

i put my exhaust system on in parts and with only the downpipe the car was pathetic, it had no power at all, with the cat and centerpipe on it was alot better but still

down in power, it wasnt until i put the rear silencer on i actually felt an improvement from the stock exhaust, surely is this not proving it needs the backpressure ??
