    Default Spoons New Exhaust

    Hi all,

    I had a new exhaust system today at MIJ Performance... and boy what a day !!

    I arrived around 09:15 and left at 18:30... !!!!!! - I'm knackered and all I did was watch ..

    Here is a diagram of what they did...

    The exhaust now sounds more burbly on tickover and louder when you boot it through the rev range. But its still perfectly quiet at cruise speeds.



    Here are the road test results from this evening...

    September 2007 - New Exhaust
    Outside Temperature = 15.5 degrees
    Two People in Car & 1/2 tank of fuel....

    2nd Gear held at 30mph
    30 - 50mph = 2.74, 2.97, 2.79 (average = 2.83) +0.39 Second Faster than previous stage

    3rd Gear held at 50mph
    50 - 70 mph = 3.87, 3.87, 3.87 (average = 3.87) +0.55 Second Faster than previous stage

    4th Gear held at 50mph
    50-70 mph = 4.71, 5.03, 4.63 (average = 4.79) +0.30 Second Faster than previous stage

    5th Gear held at 50mph
    50-70 mph = 7.29, 6.75, 6.52 (average = 6.85) -0.02 Second Slower than previous stage
