Exhaust suggestions


Recommended Posts

Only me!

91 110CSW 200TDI

Mr MOT man has 'advised' that the exhaust is not long for this world.

I intend keeping this vehicle fr a while so would consider something in stainless.

I tow lots of plastic fronted caravans, so it needs to be a side exit, like standard.

I am looking at tweaking the fuel pump/bigger intercooler for a bit more grunt.

Suggestions and sources, please.

I have the Janspeed performance one on mine and am very impressed with it. It seems to work well with the Alisport intercooler, sounds nice without being loud, and fits perfectly. I tried to fit a Rimmer bros one to my old 110 and it was awful, didn't fit at all well and was sent back for a refund.

Only downside was I got it from scrapiron racing so it took forever to get the right bits.

just had to change my exhaust on my 300tdi

kept the non cat down pipe

added a straight thru scorpion centre pipe

replaced the rear box with an original

the difference is huge, more torque, more low down power, better drive-ability. and a really cool sound but not over loud inside or outside.

i really recommend a straight thru :D

SS phoned me today with what seems like a very good quote for the whole system with straight through centre pipe. They call this their 'utility' system.

Cheers

How much did they quote if you don't mind me asking? I may be interested in something similar and would be curious to know how much i need to save up!

I added a striaght through pipe to mine a while ago to replace the centre silencer, my thread here don't think it's made any noise difference & the engine seems to be a bit more responsive.

I've gone for the 'sports utility' system, which is the one without the centre silencer. I guess it will be noisier than the standard mild steel system, but that isn't the noisiest thing in a Defender anyway.

Cheers

Looking forward to your comments when its on and when you have run it for a few months, David - in my experience exhausts often quieten down when they have been run for a while. The only time I was caught for speeding was when I had a proprietry "sports" exhaust on my GT6 and the plod said he heard me coming - LOL.

Hope to do the same soon......

Cheers, H.

Mate of mine has a 300tdi, with the straight thru centre pipe, no cat, and a late model rear pipe with no box.

Contrary to what you'd expect its not actually that noisy at all, but you get a nice whistle from the turbo out the pipe, and a nice exhaust note. The turbo acts as a pretty good silencer.

Ok, now fitted. Needed a wee bit of a heat and bend in two places to get it on.

Noise, now thats very subjective. It transpires that the standard exhaust had a hole in the top of the over axle pipe and the pipe into the centre box was leaking too.

The new system, obviously brand new, gives a different deeper sound, and the whistle can be heard.

Cheers

David
