knotguilty posted a topic in Centurion Boat Accessories, Electronics and ModificationsI love the roar of my boat when it is idling but I didn't care for the overly loud exhaust when i was cruising down the lake. By the end of the day my crew and i were all def between the music and the exhaust. I have seen many posts on this topic but I didn't see one this inexpensive so i figured i would share. I installed these in my 4" exhaust tubes going from the Sideswipe valve to the exhaust tip. It took me about 30 minutes per side and cost me ~$100 with shipping. I saw no loss in power the boat is somewhat quieter going down the lake but the real magic happens when I switch my exhaust to one side. It almost goes silent. A bit like captains call. I saw almost no reduction in idle sound with both exhaust ports open. Perfect for me. Here are the silencers I installed: http://www.cpperformance.com/p-12622-4-slip-in-silencer.aspx Here are some pictures of my install. Basically came down to drilling one hole in the exhaust tube to hold the silencer in place. Hardest part was taking the tubes out. Came down to brute strength and ignorance.
rider1985 posted a topic in Centurion Boat Accessories, Electronics and ModificationsI just purchased a 2015 Sv233 this year with a 450 pcm. I have been in boating for many years and really liked all the new technology, fit and finish that Centurion had added in the last few years. Every year we send a week on Lake Powell using the boat 8 hours a day. At the end of the week every-bodies head was ringing and the $6500 downfire sound system we paid for was wasted. I tried a FAE, but didn't like the spray of the wake. I found a company called GGB out of Canada, they make a insert for a 4" exhaust which slipped right into the stainless steel tube ( which is a empty tube) located in the exhaust hose before the exit flapper inside the boat. I purchased a pair of 8.5 inch inserts, but found i only need one installed. The boat retains the stock look, but the noise is greatly reduced. I lost about 100 rpm on the top end, which was more than acceptable to me for the noise reduction. They also make a 5.5 inch insert which might not effect the rpm, but might be a bit louder. Just thought all those out there struggling with how loud these boats are might want another option! I also have an extra 8.5 insert if someone would like to pick it up from me, $90. Love the boat and now my ears aren't ringing!
Anyone know where I can get the new sideswipe baffles that are supposed to reduce noise? Bakes used to carry them but they have been out of stock forever. I asked my boat dealer and he said Centurion doesn't make them, they are aftermarket and he doesn't know where to get them. Any idea where I can find them?
