That's interesting - care to elaborate?

Which way round is it going?

It’s weird as taken underneath on my back. The exhaust was made by Graham Bunt who matched it to a wbx silencer. It basically drops down from the outlet and sweeps directly backwards to the silencer using an intermediate pipe from a t25 I believe. I’m connecting it to an existing Brickwerks stainless steel silencer

Aah got it now, you've got long primary pipes that'll bring torque curve down the rev range.

Yep, it should. That's the idea with Wolfy's stainless system, and it looks a similar length before it merges,(if not a bit longer on yours?).Image

Hmm good news. Mine was around 10% of the cost of Wolfys but his looks purty and lasts longer. My plan, should I choose to take it, is to wait until mine is nearly rotten then copy it in stainless. I can weld ok but should save a few quid building it myself! If you don’t try you don’t learn [THUMBS UP SIGN]

Elvis also does a twin downpipe which needs finishing off for £125- I believe, looks similar maybe shorter initial pipes .

Trouble with that is the shortness, but the good news is a standard JX exhaust fits. It'd be interesting to Dyno the two or three options fitted to the same engine.

I heard the bus net one tens toward a loud result. K think I read that Brickwerks could get a jx stainless silencer done with wbx internals
