dont know what it will sound like on your 1.8tdci but when my exhaust snapped on my 2.2tdci which only has a rear silencer it sounded pretty cool, but it didnt make any more exhaust noise really just some noise from the turbo. snapped just as it went into the rear box, so was pretty much a straight through system then

When you say straight through are you ditching the CAT??

If your coming straight from the turbo to the back of the car with one pipe then youll get a bit of a burble, but more noticable is the cool turbo spool noise ;)

Don't expect similar noise to petrol, its a different beast!

My mate has a 200bhp Peugeot 306 D Turbo, with straight thru exhaust, and that sounds awesome!
I also know a guy with a 1.6TDCi fiesta. He has a straigt trough powerflow system, and that sounds pretty cool! burbles along, then a whoosh of turbo ;)

this should give you a good idea... i have heard better though

i couldn't help myself when my exhaust snapped, i was annoyed that i had only had it a week but at the same time the noise was keeping me amused. trying to drive home late at night when the streets are quiet and all you can hear is my turbo, sounds like there is a pigeon stuck in the exhaust somewhere :lol:

i would imagine you might get a little more noise. im keeping my original exhaust but hoping to buy a decat pipe from racebits if the group buy goes well.. hopefully make it breath easier and more responsive :o not expecting miracles but certainly an improvement

The turbo will spool easier and quicker, the car will breath better. Also if you decide to get a remap, you will then get better gains over just a remap alone.

Many ways of remapping.. and various costs..

Generic remap, Man in a van, Will take your map form your car, email to someone sitting in a cosy office in some european country, download the edited file, and put it on your car. he will then take your money and drive away... Any problems you may have you will have to try get the bloke back.

Generic Remap, Bluefin, By superchips, so a good company, comes with a handheld unit, so you can swap between your original map file and the new map file as often as you like via the OBD port.

Generic remap, on a dyno, Some companies offer this, where they take your file, do the same as the man in a van, then do a power run on a dyno, and give the car back to you. This will at least prove that the BHP has been improved.

Custom remap, On a dyno, A tuner will take your car, and work on it for as long as he see's fit, and until he is happy with how the car runs, how it fuels, idles, drives etc etc... some custom maps can take a couple of days for the tuner to be happy, but you will see the best ains with one of these.

Do you have the 1.8 TDCi 115?? if so i know of a company in Leeds that has a very good and strong Remap for this engine. 146BHP and IIRC 240lb/ft. and it goes like stink!

Your looking at about £350-£450 for a custom map!

I had a bluefin done on mine as soon as i got it and it really improved the turbo lag in second that was very noticable.
Figures are pretty close to a custom remap but is totally reversible if you're worried about emissions for MOT's etc.
Also the bluefin unit is good for reading fault codes too (not that i have needed it so far)
