I have read several members on the forum saying that a standard (or silenced at least) centre exhuast section, with a straight through rear section sounds the best compromise between LOUD and loud enough / nice growl n' howl when wound up. I currently have Ragazzon centre (small silencer) and straight through rear section and it sounds great but its just a bit too loud? Anyone have any suggestions where to get a standard centre section from, apart from having one made up by a specialist?

I have done exactly the same thing myself.

The centre sections are common to all versions - so a breaker would be a good bet.

Failing that there a pattern parts on eBay and elsewhere.

Let me know if you want to sell the ragazzon centre!
I have a standard silenced centre that's done less than 100miles sitting in my garage if you wanted to swap?

Thanks for the offer, what is the bore of the pipes on your centre section? Is it a standard size? I ask because all the rest of my exhaust is larger bore than standard.

The bore is standard, so slightly smaller than a ragazzon, it matches up perfectly to the raggazon on my car (quad silenced dtm) but I found the system too quiet (3 silencers in total)

Currently run a straight through centre pipe which is loud but drones a bit so was thinking the small silencer centre box would be just right!

Ditto!

Haha, I've also got a straight through centre section and boy, that was REALLY loud! The Ragazzon centre section is slightly quieter but as I have a straight through rear section too, it's still pretty antisocial to be honest, hence me wanting to change it.
When I'm putting the car in the garage in the evenings, I can see curtains twitching for several streets around ?.
I'd be up for selling the Ragazzon but I'll probably get a chambered central silencer section made up in the right bore pipe rather than a standard section. I'll let you know when the Rag is up for sale, although it might not be for a a month or two?

Completely straight through must be crazy loud!

Yes, please let me know as I would be interested in purchasing in a month or two:thumbup:

If you're interested I have a custom cat-back exhaust for sale in stainless steel - all made in one piece, its in 2.5" so a size up from original. I'm after £250 for it. There is one silencer in total.

Thanks Pud but I only really need the centre section, as everything else (cat-back) is new. I'm also considering equal length downpipes as well though if anyone has a set of those going begging for a CF3 V6?:thumbup:

I have a standard centre section, very little used, which I don't need. You're welcome to it if you wish - no charge, just need to collect or arrange pick up. It came off a TS and I've used the matched rear section on my V6, as they fit both.
