With the honeycomb catalyst and DPF there's no way your going to get any change in tone from the exhaust and modern variable vain turbos which fins start small and get bigger the faster there spun; this is to eliminate excess boost meaning there's no excess pressure to go out through a dump vale.

Get an ST or a 90's Japanese import and keep it even if you only use it on the weekends and use the diesel daily, it's the only way you can enjoy this things I todays very changing world unless you go for a high end performance petrol the days of a modern vehicle popping and banging are sadly gone.

Loud or nice? There's a big difference. It's your car so you can do what you want but just know that 99% of people will think it sounds like a typical chavvy shitbox.

Also as soon as you change your exhaust you'll find your insurance is probably cheaper on an ST than a "modified" 1.6 diesel...

Waste mate, petrol exhaust will damage a diesel engine too, there smaller diameter and higher compression, 

Are there any 1999 Toyota Glanza's around ? There a 1.3 turbo same power as the 1.6tdci around 120bhp stock, the vitz Yaris was a 1.5 turbo, or a Nissan Micra super turbo was a 1.0 turbo and supercharged.

No problem, I too miss petrol I had mostly Toyota's had a Levin bzr and a Glanza 

Have you saw mightycarmods on YouTube? They have a load of great videos from across the years, great viewing since you like petrol engines and blow off valves, Gaskings is another good one and the early videos of muscle Vs tuner were a great laugh particularly "typical things honda drivers say"

 There all great channels and not chavvy like that London fella that always wears sun glasses in his videos can't think of his channel 

I'll edit with the name; ah yes "monky London" can't stand that YouTube channel
