GTV 3.0 Cat back???

Im deciding what cat back to get for my gtv 3.0, this is the set up ive come up with:
Ragazzon large silenced centre pip
Ragazzon unsilenced twin DTM.

I want it to keep the v6 noise, or like to sound like the 8c with the over run noise, but i dont want a bass, droning noise on the motorway or deathening!

Not sure on the large or small centre silencer?? will there be any difference between em?

Also, you can only get one size centre box from Ragazzon
Secure UK tuning store Alfa, Ferrari, Fiat, Lamborghini, Lancia, Maserati

The centre box is a sound killer even with straight through exits.

I put a small box into the straight through pipe. Cheaper.

If you go with the larger centre pipe, you might drop the back pressure and the low end torque though? May be better off with the smaller perhaps?

It's not the size of the box thats the problem with the back pressure. It's the rather large bends in the pipe work. Another part of the reason why I put a box in that was directional in line with the rear, rather than bent around like a snake!
I found the centre box is the biggest sound killer.
