So I removed the entire exhaust system for final bracing and welding, it's quite sculptural to look at, or maybe I'm just a sad xxxxxx.

I'm pretty happy with that.


A bit of both maybe, I can see a bit of Giger in there.

I'm pretty happy with that.

That is indeed a tidy piece of work but i have to ask - it's rather a lot of steel there - isn't it a bit heavy ?

The silencer is stock Evora S right up to the point where the outlets Y off to each side, so there is probably an extra 1 or 2kg over the standard Lotus silencer itself. However i have no CATs either pre CAT or post CAT, so my complete system should in theory be lighter than the Evora S one.

Either way my entire car is lighter than an Evora S anyway, for example my EB60 gearbox is 11kgs lighter than the Evora unit.

Its amazing what you can get away with on an older car - no cats and so on. The basic system needed for a v6 is so much simpler (and lighter) than the system that Lotus have to put onto the evora.

Just fired it up today on this new system, my god it's good, one of the best sounding systems I've ever built and I've built hundreds.

Video coming soon, I can't believe the sound this thing makes now, should be epic under load.

So broadly speaking, what's left to do on it Paul? Be great to have a strike-off list and we can all chant along [Very Happy]

Broadly there are no major jobs left to do now, but there are hundreds of small ones that make up the whole picture.

Hopefully it will have turned a corner by Summer.

Jay you still haven't said Evora enough times [Very Happy]
