The rear silencer had begun to go and gave signs of baffel ware when starting (rattle). With everthing else I was doing I decided to go for a new full dual stainless option. After phoning around I found that several surpliers would custom make a system to my car. The probelm with this was that I was not in a position to take the car to them nor did I want it to be done after the re-spray. I then found quicksilver how as luck would have it, just released a dual sports system for a turbo,carb Esprit fro mail order. Obviously the rear valance needed to be modified for the second port and details on how this was done can be found here.
|At last, two weeks after suggested the new system arrived.
I have only pictured the 'buisness end' here. First impressions were not as expected with only the pipe ends being polished with the welds showing 'burn' marks.
|As you will be able to see most of the system once fitted I decided to rub down the whole system with 400 & 600 grit wet and dry before polishing with autosol and a buff.|
|What a sexy system this is. I must confess to being a little concerned about the final noise level but as with most things I'm sure time will tell. All that needs to be done now is to fit it.|
