Non-valved 70mm Lightweight system
THIS IS THE ONLY 70MM DIAMETER NON-VALVED LIGHTWEIGHT SYSTEM FOR THE SUPERCHARGED V6 MOTOR AVAILABLE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.
I'm sometimes asked for a LOUDER system than the factory exhaust - or a LIGHTER system for the track. I much prefer to build lightweight race-style systems for the real enthusiast. NOT TITANIUM - that material is unsuitable for Lotus installs. The scream from this exhaust at maximum revs is seriously hard-core but you can drive through town/suburbs without attracting undue attention. There is no dronnnnnnne.
If you look at the exhaust valve on the factory exhaust, you'll see Lotus has gone to some trouble to position the vacuum chamber well away from the silencer. HEAT is the enemy. I decided the best strategy was to remove that valve and its associated by-pass pipework and packing materials altogether - losing 6Kgs is always a good move!
So that's no packing materials, no exhaust valve or pipework and using a smaller silencer with an 8" x 5" (200mm x 125mm) end-plate brings this system down to the factory Titanium exhaust weight! With a unique internal design featuring hand-rolled core pipe and twin resonance chambers this exhaust really makes the car sound like it looks! THIS SYSTEM IS NOW BEING RUN IN THE LOTUS CUP EUROPE SERIES.
IT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR THE UK TRACKDAY MARKET!
The tailpipe module with its beautiful merge collector and 100mm Carbon or Titanium tips is connected to the system by a V-band to allow full adjustability in the diffuser aperture. Only 2bular use 100mm Carbon or Titanium tips.
