Depends on the track and where you redline, normally about 5500 if you redline at 7.5k.
If they do a static noise test they measure the noise from about half to a whole metre away with you holding the revs at about three quarters of the rev range.
Ah that's interesting. Cheers gents. I'm giving the filthy b*tch a wash tomorrow before work as she is disgusting right now so will do a noise test then. Between 0-3000rpm there is no real noise difference, but after that, jesus, it is scary loud, am honestly over the moon!
Set off any car/bike alarms yet? Mine used to do it all the time, also made people scream! I have (mostly) grown up now though :tearsofjoy:
Not yet no! Only had it fitted at 4pm today, quick trip through town had the heads turning though! After the map, it will pop and bang a bit more so will go out to scare people then :oops: what system were you running?

It’ll sound great at full chat but wait for the motorway drone!

It was custom made but pretty much the same as yours now, a straight pipe from the manifold back, to two small silencers.

The previous owner had it made in the style
of the cup racer exhausts I believe. Although I did still have my primary manifold cat in place and didn’t get around to mapping it.

Did it ever flame? Very asbo but just a cool effect :wink:

Used some porsche insect remover from the cleaning kit I got for Christmas, not sure how its meant to work but it did a terrible job of loosening up the graveyard I had on the front of my car from a recent trip down south with the Mrs.

After I finished work last night I decided to see what my idle noise was with an app. Not sure how accurate it is, but it came in between 77-79 decibels from about a meter away, not sure if that is extremely loud with regards to other peoples clio's and under track day regulations. I have also uploaded a video onto YouTube of the exhaust note from stand still, is only up to 4000rpm as it was 1am when I filmed it in the pub car park. The polish chefs find it annoying when I leave anyways, let alone sat there revving it! Will record an 8000rpm screamer soon.

Another visit up to Andy at Engine Dynamics today to re-remap my 200. I had fitted a decat pipe so wanted it smoothed out again while adding some overrun pops and bangs. The bangs only happen past 4500rpm on decel which I am very happy about as the neighbours can't even tell the difference between before and after. The sound of the bangs is absolutely unbelievable, so f*cking loud! Drove through Ripley village on my way home off the A3 and had everyone in the coffee shop looking as I bang my way pass, 99% thinking what a pr*ck, but I do not care at all. Its fantastic, I love it. Overall I made 207.8 bhp, which is only a gain of 1.6, and a gain of 11ftlbs of torque in the mid range, but the pops were the main reason for the map. A little bonus when driving in the dark, it shoots orange/blue/purple flames every bang, will definitely be getting a video out soon for you all to watch and listen too! Overall, a very happy asbo hooligan tw*t!
