S2 Twin Exit Stainless Steel Sports Exhaust
There are many silencers on the market but none have ALL the advantages of our EP Tuning Sports Silencers.
It's lightweight and quite simply the ultimate silencer you can buy for your Lotus.
The only way to improve horsepower is to get more air/fuel into the combustion chamber which in turn means you need to get more air out.
Eliseparts Sports Silencers do just this, they are expertly manufactured from 16 gauge T304 grade Stainless steel rather than the more commonly used 409/Mild Steel.
We guarantee our silencers will not corrode away like the 409 grade stainless steel which can start corroding in as little as 18 months or Mild Steel which can start corroding in as little as 6 months.
Some companies’ compromise and mix Mild steel with Stainless Steel, this is not advisable as these areas rust even more due to the galvanic reaction between two different metals.
All our laser cut flanges and TIG welding wire are 304 grade stainless steel, even the tailpipes are highly polished 304 grade stainless steel.
Apart from using "non cheated" bends throughout (this smooth’s exhaust flow), it is fully TIG (TUNGSTEN INERT GAS) welded and back purged with Argon gas so the internal welds are smoother and stronger.
2.5” O/D tubes are used to expedite the gases through, thus helping power output.
The flow paths are as straight as possible and even our twin exit exhausts use a ‘Y’ Piece internally so that the flow is as even between the exits and free flowing as possible.
By maximising the available space we have created a straight through silencer that can meet strict noise criteria.
It has perfectly formed "slip joints" so there is room for expansion and contraction which alleviates potential cracking that is sometimes a problem on cheaper systems.
As stainless steel is used throughout, we can reduce the flange thickness from 8mm to 6 mm , this helps keep it lightweight too, almost 10kg weight saving over the standard OE system.
Easy to fit and because it's lightweight it only requires 2 of the rubber mounts instead of the 4 required for the heavy OE exhaust.
The silencer is finished off with twin 3” polished tailpipes to give the rear of the car a superb look
The sound is a beautiful burble rather than the sewing machine rasp of the original; it will not droan like some manufacturers products and the dB level is kept to the minimum possible with the highest quality packing material you can buy.
Take a look at the following pictures in detail and you can see why this may be slightly more expensive than some other silencers we feel confident there is not a better/lighter exhaust available as we have engineered this one to the highest standards possible.
Acousta-fil is the latest technology in exhaust packing materials and has many advantages over standard wadding, these include;
1/. Withstands Temperatures of up to 900 Degrees centigrade (steel melts at 1200)
2/. Continuous filament texturised glass yarns so won’t blow out of the silencer
3/. Thermally efficient so reduces silencer skin temperatures
4/. Resists the effects of pulse due to its woven loop design
5/. Extremely lightweight and versatile, can be used in very small voids as it expands once initially heated.
6/. Best sound absorbsion available.
This system has been thoroughly engineered to give as many advantages to the owner as possible, we simply cannot think of anything else that can be done to improve this system.
Can be supplied with our FULL Stainless Steel fitting kit ( NOT INCLUDED); comprising, 1x new gasket, 3 x stainless steel M10 bolts, 6 x stainless steel washers and 3 x M10 full nuts.
Please note that this silencer is no longer repackable.
