New stainless fitted to the V8

Discussion in 'V8 Engine' started by Richard Edwards, Mar 20, 2017.

  1. Had an exhaust made by my local Powerflow people (Lincoln)

    Took around five hours in all

    Old silencer box


    Probably just past it`s best!


    Left Y pipe in place for now




    Video (if it works!) at idle (750 ish rpm)

    Sounds nice .Just the one muffler? Does it sound OK inside the cabin -say on a long trip
  4. It is not too obtrusive at the moment, I have not driven it long distance yet but on a quick 30 mile test run it sounded epic!

    It is a vast improvement over the old leaky system

    If it is too loud I will have a small muffler fitted as well, we still have to fit a tip once a decision has been made which one to use, don`t want it to look boy racer

    Having an old Webasto does mean a lot of outside noise enters the cabin, I am looking to fit a new roof

    I will post another video at the weekend using some revs

    Most effective at the traffic lights ;)

    Very nice. Did they have much of a waiting list to get booked in? Was it a case of turn up and they give you some suggestions or was it more complicated than that?
  10. It was pretty straighforward

    I took the car in on the Saturday afternoon for the main man to have a look on the ramp to make sure he had what he needed in stock and the they booked it in for the following Thursday

    Painfree apart from payment!

    Are you prepared to reveal the cost? Had one done on my 260Z by an excellent firm in Macclesfield, Cheshire and I seem to remember it was about £400. Have wondered about getting the P6 done.
  12. That is exactly what I was charged, very happy with the result, gave it a 70 mile blast yesterday and it sounds very nice accelerating at 80 (on a private road!)

    Not every bodies cup of tea I expect but you can certainly identify the engine as a V8 and it is always a plus point when (if) you come to sell

    I think it sounds lovely, if a little harsh at the moment. But from what I have seen (or rather, heard) is that harshness of the stainless steel goes after a while.

    What did you mean about the Y-piece?

    Are tubular manifolds coming next? :D
