Less noise please

Post by seriouslylotus » Thu Nov 24, 2016 11:12 am

As many of you will know, i bought my V6 to develop parts as well as attending track days.

I have been black flagged at Brands with the standard pig snout exhaust and also 'had a chat' with the noise man at croft

With this in mind i have been looking for a silencer to help me, sadly they all appear to be about the same sound levels and not what i would call inexpensive.

So i decided to do my own thing, here is the first prototype, I have yet to have a noise test done and find out how much it weighs

If my ears are working correctly its is very much quieter than either the pig snout or lotus sport exhausts. If it passes all the tests the production version should retail at less than £700 plus vat.

It doesn't have a valve. The tail pipes can be unbolted so different tail pipes could be an option for those who are interested.

Will post up more pictures once i have the exhaust of, at the same time will get it onto the scales

Not wasting time or money on a small power increase like that! Also the pulley is an interference fit and pressed on. It's not a simple swap job.
Simply sports cars TVS is the way forward

Not an easy fit like on the S2 then :(
Yes SSC when the warranty runs out, I already have the SSC induction kit which I had fitted onto my LF1 . But I have not fitted it to the 350 yet.

That shows that size does not matter. I thought "you will be lucky" when you posted the pictures. Wrong.
