I see lots of references about using the GT3 muffler.. what about a stock 997 centre muffler. Would this be too loud and also restrictive?

I wouldnt mind seeing some too.
i just picked up a 997 Centre muffler, NOT GT3.. not sure if there is any value in fitting it up? It looks like it is going to be loud and also the tight 180 degree bends might be restrictive?
As much as I have tried to find, I haven't seen anyone's results from using a stock 997 centre muffler on an air cooled 911 yet...

The bends are radiused nicely I donít see them being particularly restrictive?

Jed Rogers down in Austin has a non-GT3 muffler on his 3.6 swapped Carrera. Can't remember if it was 997 or 991 but it looks and sounds awesome!

From the photos, it's a 991 base centre muffler.

Yes, Jed has a 991 muffler and B&B long tube headers on the 3.6 swap. It also has a cam swap but otherwise stock 3.6 internals. Put down some strong numbers on the dyno. The car is dialed.
