you can get just a simple back box most exhaust shops do them now it wont give any power gains just make a noise avoid induction kits just stick a performance panel filter in the airbox you have

If you can i really reccomend a sportex cat-back race tube system there loud and very bassey also give you a little bit more kick where as backboxes dont do anything bar sound better also the biggest tip you can have is a 4" circle as good as the cossie oval looks they just dont fit :(
