Hi folks,
Just got back indoors after fitting and test driving my spider after fitting unsilenced mid section. It is running with a ragazzon silenced quad rear section.
It is however very loud! Will my new mid section quiet down a bit once it has sooted up?

Haha or I might go deaf. I'm not convinced with my setup at the moment. Thinking it is anti-social, but does make me smile :)

i hear its the mid section that is the real silencer and those ragazzon silencers are just tuning sound rather than quietening things down

do a you tube vid i am interested in how loud is loud

no cat and no mid silencer is about as loud as it can get there are various combinations of what to get rid of and what to keep but i am planning on

decat
keep mid section
and then the quads at the rear

I've heard a cup with the centres taken out and twin ragazzon rears and it was effing loud. I've taken one of the big centre boxes out of mine with a small single coming out of te OE cut out and it's Lou enough for me so taking both centres out must be pretty bonkers. I think, with a post Christmas (full of beer) mindset I'd run it straight through just for a laugh! You're most of the way there so why stop now! You tube will give you an idea how loud these cars can get but if you don't ever want to talk to your missus an unsilenced Alfa engine is a great thing to have.

So I guess I am running an unsilenced setup then, that would explain the volume :)
Will do a vid tomorrow.

Look(listen) at me

I had the centre silencer removed on one of my V6 GTVs exiting through unsilenced quads, just to see what it would sound like.....far too loud....lovely but totally anti-social. I'll have to have a small centre silencer fitted just to pass an mot plus I doubt anyone would want to buy it as it is now.

Thats the centre i run with un-silenced ragga quads. Totally awesome noise, pops and burbs and sounds the muts nuts at high revs. You can also drop the revs pop it into 5th/6th and have normal conversation with the person sat next to you.

Hi mike,

Shall we try each other mid sections out one day soon then?

Mine sounds great but is crazy loud. Still tempting to keep it. The misses hates it though.

Your welcome to try mine for a week or so but I would put my original back on - I know that yours will be way too loud or me :)

That's very kind of you mike. I know it was too quiet before and now too loud so now definitely going for the smaller silenced mid section. Now need to find a second hand one to swap for my unsilenced one.

Any one want to swap? I am happy to pay extra or for all postage?
