    was thinking of getting of getting centre section removed but advised not to by local fabricator as wont make much difference (although seen videos that show other) and was told complete back box removal would be better... anyone share some insight whether that would be too much

    Removing the centre section definitely made a huge difference, however it did introduce a flatspot and sounded "tinny" at times. I'd imagine removing/changing the backbox would cost more too compared to simply cutting the centre silencer out and adding a straight pipe.

    Removal of the centre silencer is a good, cheap way to get more sound but it's not as good as purchasing an aftermarket exhaust system.
