    Has anybody done this?

    My exhaust is a bit quiet (think silenced egg whisk), I don't want a loud stereotypical Saxo exhaust but would like a bit of burble to it. It's been suggested I chop the centre silencer out but I don't really want to shaft a perfectly good exhaust.

    Eventually I plan getting a local firm to build me a cat back system (not PowerShonk and not Miltek after reading a few bits on here :( ). Thought this might be a viable temporary fix. My brother is a handy welder so it won't cost anything to do.

    From reading other posts on here its best to get rid of centre silence if you want noise, dont know what kind of noise you`d get from the stock exhaust tho.

    I have a custom stainless backbox (twin 3" slash cut) that I had made for my old estate. I did specify not loud and chavy and it's virtually silent.
