Center exit exhaust

Can someone post up so pics of how they installed a center exit exhaust. I know I saw some on here before, but can't get the search to bring up anything.

I would like to see how you mounted it, what kind of muffler you used, and any mods that need to be done.

I have a 07 SXT 2.0l CVT, I would like to make the exhaust a little louder but not sound like most of the Hondas running around where you can hear them for 3 miles but they are doing 20MPH.

I had posted a photoshop pic of the setup I wanted with a center exhaust.
I know there was one person that had done it, but that was with a SRT-4 model, which would have a different exhaust system and probably different mounts.

The biggest problem is not the pipe work (at least on the SRT models).
For the SRTs, a straight in/straight out muffler to a 'Y' pipe is all that is needed (maybe a bit of straight pipe, but I don't think so). The exhaust pipe on my Caliber SRT runs down the middle of the car.

The difuser is what is going to be tough/expensive. To replace the SRT difuser with one that looks OEM, it'll be about $200-$300, which will include a replacement difuser, plastic welding/fiberglassing, and paint.

I'll post some pics of mine for work on a non-SRT model. I ended up cutting the muffler off and going with a straight pipe out the center and just using a bracket to pull the pipe towards the center I have a nice center exit look with my exhaust tip.

Amatas83, how loud is it without the muffler, did you use an aftermarket can of any kind?

It's not as loud as you would think I guess. I mean to me it sounds good which I attribute to already having the CAI on it to increase airflow in. at idle it's fine and you hear it with just a little gas it goes quiet in neutral. It sounds good in tunnels and under bridges lol I still need to post a pic or video maybe I'll do that with my day off monday.
