...so at the risk of suffering a severe wallet injury - how do I achieve the above?

SWMBO has mentioned it several times after yesterday's run - is an intake & backbox combo the quickest route to this, anyone got first hand experience or feedback & any ideas on the effect on your insurance premiums?

I await enlightenment Laughing

I got mine to first start doing it a few months ago! No mods needed (I didn't do any anyway) just put the sport button on let it warm up a bit then in 2 or 3 gear at 3000 revs then let it drop to about 2500 and pop and bangs you have!

Never fails to put a smile on my face!

Cut the centre resonator out, that should help a lot. Though it'll never pop as much as a manual one will.

You have a N18 engine Emily as do you James, Lee you have a N14 engine.

To answer your question Lee, I was told it can't be added.

The sport button has to be on on the n18 yes (though mine sometimes does it with it off since having it converted), but due to how the auto changes gear it won't pop at every gear change due to how the throttle/torque convertor/gearbox etc work in combination.

It'll only do it if you accelerate a bit, then let off to over-run. This bit probably isn't technically right, but for the purposes of understanding it'll make sense - when you change gear in a manual the engine will go on to overrun (this is where you get the pops), an auto won't. The only time the auto is on overrun is in neutral OR when you accelerate, then let off but don't change gear. Manual override would be the easiest way of guaranteeing it doesn't change gear!

If you look underneath your car, you'll see that there's the two back boxes at the rear, then somewhere towards the middle of the car (probably slightly closer to the front than back being a clubman), you'll see there's a further box in. This is the centre resonator.



It's not the best sound quality, and by the looks of the rear bumper it's an n18, but the same principle is there on the N14 - it'll probably pop a little more though.

Getting the delete done shouldn't be expensive, and any exhaust type place should be able to do it for a few quid!

N14s don't need the sport mode selected to get pops..
