All of the Turbos that I know f that have center exhaust use a Ruf CTR-2 center exhaust rear bumper and have had the exhaust pieces fabricated. Ruf actually made one example of a center exhaust for a Turbo R, the rest went for their CTRs. Its not that hard to have a good exhaust shop make the exhaust pieces.

The biggest challenge is getting a muffler in there big enough to keep the car quiet. Most center out's are very loud, custom made and won't work with stock headers.

Kai's above uses custom headers with a GT3 Cup muffler, not the cheapest option available but very effective.

There was a thread just last week about center mufflers. Not sure if that helps, since it wasn't exactly about centered muffler outlets.

That is a very good look, but do not forget about the paint and bodywork. If it is a street car it may be a challenge to do the tailpipes and have enough ground clearance under the license plate. I had a wild ice for this too a few years ago but was not sure if it was going to be easy to pull off.

Unless the exhaust plumbing on a NA car is vastly different than a turbo (I don't think its very different), the mufflers in their stock location do not present a problem. The custom bit is simply to take the muffler output and route it to the center of the car. Properly trimming the rear bumper is the bigger challenge. My Turbo R has no mufflers (turbos don't need no stinkin' mufflers), and the routing was actually a bit more difficult than if the mufflers were in their stock locations.

Thanks for the ongoing feedback.
Steve, I got a good look (and feel) of Javi's setup on his sadly departed Ruf.
and
I'm looking for a decent donor rear bumper cover now.

Cheers

seems interesting.
any chance you could post another pic where the exposure allows better view of the outlet?

thank you.

Craig, I seem to recall someone (sponsor? or body parts manufacturer) posting here recently, and they were considering making some bumpers like this... Probably in the last 3 months or so... Or talk to GT3Tek...

Firstly you need the rear bumper installed in order to start the muffler mods., this ain't rocket science,no biggie to do, althou you need a biggie check book!
