    Hi Guys just after a bit of advice, so i'm after a bit of noise from my 197 but don't want it ruining my life. So i've been looking at removing the centre section, ive heard about there being a flatspot but realistically how much does this affect the driving experience? Also does this make the car drone like crazy?

    I suppose what i'm after is something that's quiet when driving around normally and then a good rasp when i put my foot down, not something that annoys the neighbours and nobody wants to get in my car because of the noise.

    I had a toyosport on my 182 and never want anything that bellowing again!

    Thanks in advance

    From what I understand its frowned upon. Very loud but sounds good at full chat. However, will be drony and noisy.

    Have a look at them on Youtube, quite a lot of videos of centre resonator deletes.

    Get yourself a Scorpion resonated exhaust. Lovely bit of noise when you plant it but no droning whatsoever.
