Theres quite a lot of interest in exhausts lately, particularly for the TS it seems - and by happy coincidence im having a bit of an (expensive) dabble at the moment, so thought I would post up some results.
I hope this doesnt seem too rambling!
Manifold - std
Collector - std
CAT - std
Mini - std
Mid - ragazzon Alfisti mini box
Rear - Biscione 2x70mm with damper
As it currently sounds my exhaust is pretty fuking loud - it screams when pusing on (lovely), but around town its a bit embarassing.
I used to run the ragazzon alfisti with an unsilenced ragazzon 2x70mm rear - and that was just plain silly. Vauxhall Corsa barry boy eat your heart out stuff
Then, for a while, I ran the ragazzon mid-section with a standard (2 box) rear silencer. This produced a really, really nice tone - but of course not loud enough!
Now, im finally doing a switcheroo and mounting a ragazzon straight through MINI, followed by a CSC damped middle section, lining up the 2x70 Biscione rear.
It seems that the mid-section is what takes care of most of the sound reduction, so putting a straight or Alfisti box here really lets the sound out!! Im hoping by adding a silencer back in ill get the scream, but not so much the BOOM at low revs.
Heres some pics:

It might be a week before I can post any results, as the car is currently away having a CV joint looked at. But in anycase, stay tuned
ps: Never had any CSC products before, but it looks really well made
