Hello and welcome to the forum. The 'other' box is another silencer, the exhaust goes to that one and then back across the car to the box with the tailpipe on it. I get a water leak from the front of the right-hand box where, I believe, there is a small manufactured slot to allow the water out.

Do they sound as good from the outside as they do inside? I'm in love with the V6 growl!​

Either I have a busted cat, or they all sound better on the outside:
Smooth growl on the inside, but wind the windows down and I get a spitfire-like exhaust roar that makes the engine sound primal. I fell in love with it 3 years ago...

I don't know what exhaust set-up you have dj, but if it's OEM, you wanna get yourself a stainless steel twin exhaust from MIJ in Walsall, near Birmingham. You can choose between sport, mid-sport or full sport on the exhaust note, believe me, you wouldn't be disappointed, we had a Group buy there earlier this year.(y)
