    cheap universal back box

    or do what i did on my old pug:
    remove the middle silencer pipe or cut out the middle box
    fit some flexible exhaust tubing in its place
    pipe work need to be a bit longer than you need (about 2-3" longer, cut the ends to push then downwards so the flex pipe fits)
    put clamps and exhaust putty around the joins

    i did have a savage back box as well with a 4 1/2 inch pipe so this was erm......loud

    it even set off a car alarm when dropping a gear going round a tight bend by work

    Remove the middle resonator would be sufficient and fit a straight pipe in place.
    Too much noise would be overpowering on long journeys and get on your t*ts

    If you go for the airbox mod .
    Drill larger holes on the cooler side of the engine bay ( towards the wing )
    And round the front and back drill smaller holes
    Bot don't drill holes on the hottest part of the engine bay ( facing the cambelt cover .
    On the Saab 's hirsch did an airbox like that for 300 but a drill and a hole saw did the same trick
    Gives you that little bit extra induction sound .
