CATALYSERS!

The catalyser seems to be the most misunderstood component in the exhaust judging by the antics of some owners. It's a common strategy to remove the substrate - this VX220 N/A owner is in the middle of doing this on the downpipe bolted to the manifold, hoping that he will release some bhp. Reducing the back-pressure innit! This one is a metal substrate and it's tough to hack it out. Unfortunately, where you really need the gas-speed to be at its highest, he's created a large void which slows it right down - not the best feature to encourage scavenging…

30/06/2019: Must admit to a heaving belly-laugh at the clowns on TLF. Ref the thread on "exhaust pipes differ in color". If you have a front-engined install the exhaust run through to the tailpipes is near enough straight back. Twin Titanium tips will have the same coloration. The hue depending on the HEAT they are dealing with. Lighter blue - hotter the pipe. However, on the Lotus V6 mid-engined install, the pipe run approaches the tailpipes from the right (looking from the rear of the car). So the LH tailpipe sees more of the gas-flow - hence the "differing color". You'll see it on the Titanuim tips fitted to the old Lotus Sport exhaust on early N/A cars. Can't remember anyone complaining about them then. What made me laugh were the comments/advice from the TLF 'experts'. Batteries/tin-foil/sugar!???? Blowtorch! Send them back! Ignorance rules on there folks - but it is…
