Default Getting my new exhaust fitted today!

I just dropped my car off at vortex to be fitted with a new exhaust

Iíve gone for a full custom Fab in 304 stainless steal with 2x Vortex chambers (weather they actually do anything I donít know/care)

Iíll let you know what itís like when sheís back and Iíll upload a vid of it

I chose Vortex because no one else has one and Miltek seems to obvious

On a side note my old S8 V10 exhaust will be up for sale soon

Default It is done...

Just got the car back and WOW! Itís so different!

Itís a complete custom built exhaust with 2 Ďmagicí Vortex boxes

Tests done with all windows down

0-40mph thereís a subtle-ish burble, itís more than the standard exhaust but not intrusive at all

40-80mph... this one shocked me, no noise at all! I mean none! Very impressed with that (was panicking a bit about drone)

I didnít go over 80 because itís illegal but I imagine it stays silent

Overall Iím very impressed with Vortex, the guys are all great and they stayed 1.5hours late to finish the job for me

I've been looking at the possibility of getting a Vortex exhaust system ... I need a full system though, cats and all.

How's yours going Chip, are you still pleased with the result?



Problem is, Vortex are about 250 miles away from me and it's a 2 day job to make it and fit it.

They tell me that, if they can source a similar car, they may be able to make the exhaust and ship it up to me ...

Anyone in the Essex area with a FL D2 S8 willing to help? I'll gladly pay you for your time
