gutting the exhaust :)

my exhaust is standard and i was going to gut the midpipe.
i dont want a loud exhaust but would like it to have a louder noise to it when hard acceleration.
i was looking at gutting the silencing on the midpipe hoping that the exhaust would be slightly louder.
i dont want to mess with the decat coz of sensors and mot. i dont want to spend alot of money on new system and pipes.
has any one gutted any pipes befor???
and wil this work or am i being a knuckle head???

Janspeed Cat back

Not worth taking out the mid pipe guts as it'll make the exhaust note have a "wofty" effect.

A Janspeed backbox or Cat Back gives a nice note without being daft loud. Deffo worth the money imo.

Tbh I think "gutting" the exhaust just ain't worth it, it'll just sound poo.

my mate did it with his punto and it's crap.
