    Default 2.2 middle section

    have been having a nosey about and have came across " middle section straight through exhaust pipe" which does away with the middle silencer.

    as i have the duel exit system, would this section of pipe add a bit of grunt to my exhaust note?

    i have also read about losing back pressure on these after market exhaust systems which can actually lose some bhp?

    i dont really want to replace my system as i like the look of the standard duel exit, just fancied a wee bit of a note when giving her the beans,

    give me a few opinions please

    Removal of any silencer will make it louder but as you point out it may also lose you a few bhp or a bit of torque. You probably wouldn't notice it though
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Remus do one for the 2.2 Vec B, they might be worth a call. There was one for sale for the Vec C in the for sale section but it was months ago. Vec B 2.2 guys have said that it only gave extra noise and no if not less performance.

    Thats the make that was being sold. All you have to do is slide off the centre section from the flexi and then slide it from the Y section. Easiest way would be just to drop the whole zorst off the hangers, loseley assemble on the ground and offer it back up. I'd recommend a good soak over night with some wd40.
