Induction Or Exhaust

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

I know this has been asked many times and your probably all sick of the question but...

 

I have an Elise 111s, all standard, never been messed with, i am wanting to give the car more of a 'grunt' when its at idle, im not fussed about giving it any extra power (yet phone1.gif ) but just wanted to know what i can do to make it sound better when idle, i have heard about removing the valve on the drivers side exhaust, or putting induction kits on or exhaust etc etc etc, but which route do i go down, at the moment i don't have a big budget (having only bought the car a couple months back) and at some point im sure i will be doing a lot more to it.

 

Any help would be much appreciated

Induction won't sound any different really at idle, it's not until high revs and under load you hear the benefits.

The exhaust valve mod takes 2 seconds, just unplug the vacuum pipe from the valve and block it off, a zip tie works.

If you want sound then start with the exhaust. I've just put a janspeed roadsport on my 111s and it isn't that loud until you give it some throttle.

You can also remove the cat and put a decat pipe in there.
