It sounds turbo'd, are the flames because of de-cats or just your engine/map?

Very nice

hehe

Flames are because of decats and a special map by Ryan at Syvecs. It's essentially a tunnel run map, not to be used a lot at all.

I used it today in the Hindhead (A3) tunnel - scared the crap out of myself with the noise, but magically the 50mph traffic in lane 2 cleared away into lane 1! biggrin

Awesome!
Right, I clearly need to decat my T350...

How much louder does it become in general?
I currently have the Racing Green back boxes on, and I already have to be careful with the noise (living in London) attracting the wrong sort of attention.

I also understand it sorts out some of the heat problems?
Is it something I can do myself?

Well I have the full ACT system, and it is noisy. Have a look here at 31 seconds Supercar Event 2012.

Think double the volume of a standard Sag, but with more bass. It sounds like a few Harley-Davidsons together on tickover.

As for the decats - having seen them on RedSpikes Sag, I can definitely say that they are flamethrowers! Maybe not with the venom of these, but definitely there. smile

It was certainly a nice sound to follow. Muted by the pipes not facing back.

Imagine the Sag side exhaust is a little offensive for the car being overtaken. biggrin

Well Ryan from Syvecs has just finished remapping the car after running in.

Let's just say that I am a VERY happy boy. (Also the traction control is amazing, and the tunnel map... heh heh heh)



Headline figures of 443bhp & 358lb/ft. We finished the run around 7400 as we didn't want to explode the engine.
Massive kudos to the companies involved with the engine - Racing Green (FFF head, lightened flywheel, Symplex chain etc, building it), ACT (Exhaust and Airbox) and Syvecs. And massive thanks from me also. I'm gobsmacked.
That is excellent.

I want mine back NOW!!

When's it due? We need a run out before the end of BST.

That looks like quite a day out! It's almost impossible to tell on my laptop speakers though. I'll have to pop over and see it for myself some time soon.
Are you planning to take it to the Ace Cafe soon?

They certainly are flamethrowers !! hehehehehehe

I have ACT decat pipes, standard middle section, CliveF back box, standard end cans. Much Much nicer style of noise, louder, and flames. It's addictive. I think Don's takes it up a level.

The noise eyeballs out past the pit wall at Cadwell is just amazing biggrin

How do you get on Cadwell with noise levels as they are?

The latest from Colin (last Thursday) was it will all be built mid September. Looks like about the same time as Pascal's Swordfish will be back. So hopefully w'll manage a nice group outing by the end of the month.

It would make sense to ensure Pascal leaves the UK smile
