Looking into exhaust systems in the market right now and I wanted to know everyone’s input...
1. Your budget
2. How loud you want it to be
3. Titanium or stainless steel
4. Valves or no valves
Then we can talk
I'm very Keen on Valved Boostlogic
Just need to organise getting one over here once they are in stock
Outside of looks, is there a good reason [to] purchase a titanium exhaust? I cant imagine they flow better than a mandrel bent system and when it comes down to it, isn't better flow what we're after?
dont know about if titanium is better flowing then steel exhaust but one of the big reason for going titanium would be its lighter weight over steel exhausts.. and titanium produces a different tone vs steel from what i was told.
Correct, so much lighter and usually a little bit of a sound difference.
Akrapovic with AA DP's
Pricey set up but worth it to me IMO
Well mannered and suites the car perfectly
Voted other (stock) lol This car doesn't need an aftermarket exhaust. Sounds perfect from factory.
EU and ME spec cars sound like Sh!t
They have different mufflers & are way too quite
not sure what your abbreviations are but my days of annoying loud exhausts are over.. Quiet is good.
European Union and Middle east
Correct, there is no flow difference, but it is substantially lighter and often has a thinner wall section, resulting in a lot raspier note compared to plain carbon steel or stainless steel.
So an exhaust piecemealed together in chunks that are welded together vs a mandrel bent system have the same flow characteristics?
mandrel bent vs mandrel bent, the material has negligible difference.
Ti is often pie cut/lobstered because it's not viable for most shops to bend it - unlike stainless/carbon steel
That said, a well-made lobster/pie cut exhaust will flow largely the same. On an engineering level, yes, there are some losses, but I you would not even pick it up within 0.10hp
