Nice one Tom,

That looks lovely Tom! I have had Ragazzon catbacks on my 147 and my 145 QV and adored them, I'm actually looking for a Ragazzon catback for my 155.

Can't wait for the vids btw, also if you need a hand fitting it, lemme know

Look forward to the pics and any videos....

Is it very noisy from the back when driving, does it overpower the noise from the engine so it could be anything under the bonnet?

I fitted a system last year and had to remove it as my kids had issues with it but also found it drowned out engine noise and almost sounded like the boot was not shut properly... seemed better when warm however and was a nice sound.....just noisy from the back

I had the wizard system and dont get me wrong it looked and sounded great when warm but was a bit loud for my daughters ears (medical issue) and they kindly had it back after a week on the car. I had bought the car for the noise of the v6 engine and felt it was a bit too much for the GT and moved the sound to the back from the front, but probably suits the GTA charachter much better...

No it's not very noisy whilst driving, at idle sounds a lot deeper took it down a dual carriage way up to 90mph didn't sound a lot different from the old system but i did notice around town in lower gear sounds a lot deeper, you can still hear the engine note though was going to get the mid pipe without silencer glad I didn't I think it would have been too loud. Picked it up this afternoon so didn't get time to get some pics, should be able to do something at the weekend

I take it they had to do some metal work to get the second pipe across?

Tom, that is probably the worst video I've ever seen

Looks great though

Let me know when someone makes one that sounds better than standard
