4500 GL - Exhaust Questions

Post by petri oosthuizen »

Hi Guys

My 4500 (1998) has the standard exhaust still on.

I like it, its very quiet (amper TE stil…..), but just the following questions please. Some may sound VERY stupid, want ek weet niks van die goed af nie

1) What is the "usual" thing to do, keep it as is or cut out a box or 2?? Tinus has posted somewhere "los alles net so tot agter die gearbox"...…..dis omtrent my gedagte. I don't want branches and krulle and draaie etc etc

2) Does this have a cat, and if so can one remove it??

3) Any other well known, proven tips and tricks regarding the zost??

THANKS

Petri, my exhaust is standard. No cat. I like it, it is quiet.

The 4.8 that the weggenoot wrote off was a beast, but had an aftermarket exhaust (De Graaf??? Or something like that). Sound 'lekker gif' driving in town, but drove me mad on long drives.

As dit nie jeuk nie, moet nie krap nie... :)

Good advise thanks Ian.

Ja wat - het gedink hyt 'n cat of 'n ding wat mens kan uithaal.

Maar moet ook se - een van my impressions wat my BAIE impress het is hoe still die kar ry op langpad.........ek het iewers geskryf dit voel of jy in 'n Hybrid ry :biggrin:

Ekhet so maand of 2 terug 'n V8 76 gehad, so bietjie met hom gery. Hyt so zost ingehad. Nice vir so 5 km, dan wil jy 'n blerrie aartappel indruk. My BAIE geirriteer.

Petri, if it ain't broke...

'n Goed geboude free-flow kan vir jou 'n klein bietjie meer krag en/of beter brandstofverbruik gee, maar net 'n klein bietjie. Waarskynlik nie meer as 5% nie, alhoewel baie ouens dubbel dit sal claim, en ek glo vas bitter min mense kan minder as 20% "voel". Veral as die klank verander, en dit sal.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Ek stem saam met Peter. Het die Tshirt...... Free flow is goed genoeg, los die manifolds. Het my 4.8 laat doen en al wat ek ervaar is net harder klank.

Terloops, ek het n stel branches vir iemand wat dit soek - gratis.
