GTV V6 - Straight Through Centre Pipe
Feeling a desire lately to get some more 'sporty-ness' out of my drive, and whilst I'd like to solve the problem by dropping £20k on a Maserati... I don't have £20k to hand...
Soooooo, I was thinking about rasping up the exhaust a bit on my oh so quiet GTV Cup. Now I don't want really loud, I don't want booming, I don't want boy racer. I just want it to sound like a sports car which at the moment, it doesn't. If I drive through a tunnel and floor it at the moment, nada, nothing, it's so quiet anyway there's nothing to reverberate. This is not how it should be!
So, what's the verdict on simply loosing the centre silencer? Does this have a positive effect whilst not becoming overly loud?
I'm assuming the answer here will be fairly positive so, what's the best way to do this? I see Ragazzon have a SS pipe for c.£120 all in, but I'm feeling tight at the moment having just shelled out for four new tyres so that sounds like a lot for what is essentially, a single piece of pipe! Is there a mild steel version? Does anyone else do them? Anyone had one made up? Anyone got one for sale?
