I realise I may have my membership to this forum cancelled for this....

But my exhaust is too loud! It is all good driving around town, but on country roads it is more than wearisome.

I'm not sure what make it is, but it is stainless and certainly after market.

The front part to the Cats is standard I believe.

How difficult is it to get a standard exhaust and what are they like? Do they restrict the engine any?

I've Googled around a bit, but cannot see clearly one available.

Cheers.

I know what you mean- full sports exhaust is too loud on motorway and original is expensive and very quiet

Iím guessing you have a Double S SS exhaust on there- 1 centre silencer?

Or have you got a straight through with a single small silencer at the end (very loud)?

I have combined in the past:

1) TD5 90 centre sports silencer from Devon 4x4 (they are the ones that do it)
2) Fit a rear section also with a sports silencer- several people do these

The above works a treat and I have done it 3 times on 50th, TD5 and Discos

Donít fit a Ďcherry bombí centre section- itís still loud- Iíve tried it

Many thanks both,

I'll get them on order - no point in having a fabulous car with such an annoying habit Smile

just climbed under the 50th as I thought i'd like to remove the centre silencer to make it a bit noisier as per the part numbers above...

And its already got one; so I can confirm the sound is not too loud (especially as I was thinking of going louder!)

I know this is an old thread but i have recently stripped mine as i had a spare td5 90 centre box the same as the one Craddocks sell but the down pipes are 3"not 2.5 as on a TD5 so it will not fit ???

Thanks for that but the original parts are not available and the question was is it 2.5 " as mine is 3" possible sports cats ...

Sounds like your down pipes have been changed from original or the centre box you have is smaller- I donít know off hand the Diameter of the pipe- would guess itís 3Ē on TD5

Definitely if you have original downpipes on your 50th and genuine TD5 back section- the Devon 4x4 centre section will fit (just needs a bit of adjustment to the hanger)

Iíve just done my latest 50th- Centre section as above and bought a nearly new genuine rear section off fleebay (there is a guy on there selling the old ones when people put sports exhausts on) my rear section come off a 2016 TDCI- all fits a treat and sounds good 👍

Thanks for replying

The mesurent on the internal of the exhaust at the Join after the cats is 63mm or 3" this may mean it has had sports cats fitted to it ,manifolds are standard .. i think this is what has happened and hence why a td5 system will not fit ,, i am talking to James at Griffin Performance who made the original ones off me 1st 50th ..no 105 .
