    Default Gsi centre box removal

    How much more exhaust noise would removing the centre box on my Gsi generate. It's very quiet and just want the V6 to growl a little more without going down the route of an aftermarket exhaust.

    That's the part I was looking at. Let me know your thoughts after doing it.

    hi larry it would make it a little more beefy but not intrusive. u would gain a tiny amount of top end but nothing to write home about. a custom exhaust is fantastic on these i have one myself and it is worth every penny for that glorious v6 noise.

    had it changed today its quiet not what i was expecting or what im use to the wife loves it she went out and said its much better now its like a normal carso that means the neighbours might start talking to me now
    when you rev the car it does give a little bit of a raspy sound but tbh what i can remember it sounded like that as standard i think it sounds the same nothing like the one i had on
    @larrysSRI

    I opted for Remus back boxes and a pod filter. Enjoy

    Ive not looked into any more mods to my system yet but i have got the straight through powerflow tail pipes fitted to mine (no back box's) and the noise is just right and sounds great at the right rev levels.

    Iv had them both took out on mine and it doesn't sound too loud, until you take the back seats out and take it on a trackday...then it's a little too loud lol.
