    Speak to an exhaust specialist about fitting electrically operated cutouts.

    That's an electrically operated cutout.
    Essentially allows you to switch between two different exhaust systems or bypass s silencer at will.

    Your probably looking at £70 to £100 for the actual unit and then whatever the costs for fitting.Unless you can fit it yourself.
    Doing this will give you a straight through exhaust sounding very noisy.
    Another way would be to take out the middle exhaust box but that would be a permanent fix.
