Remove middle box on TBI?

Has anyone tried? Ive got a Brera S exhaust and the sound is way better, but could be just a little bit louder and preferably with some rasp. Would it help me to replace the middle box with a straight pipe?

(where do I get it?)

Hmmm, I think you should replace it with a straight through silencer box - so not just a piece of pipe. The reason I say that is because it is possible to make any exhaust far too loud.

I think you need some kind of silencing or you will get a droning noise in the cabin.

Get it custom made - should not be expensive, they will remove original and follow fit to make to your spec.

It won't work. The turbocharger mutes the soundwaves. It might make it louder but not beautiful.
