      Muffler Removal - Trial

      A few days before the Junta Curfew was done, I had met my friend to remove the muffler on my car and see if there is any difference in performance and exhaust note.

      Was a simple and half an job to remove the muffler once it was cool and then using SS pipes we made a similarly shaped pipe matching all OEM mounts and rubber hangers.

      We got hold of a brilliant person who deals in making SS-items like railings, gates etc, we took the OEM exhaust and explained what we wanted him to do. In 45 minutes the new pipe was ready and we were charged around ₹600.

      Circles in yellow are the two bolts which need to be undone to disconnect the muffler from the exhaust unit

      Have driven almost 300+ kms and could find a minor difference in mid-range acceleration and revving of the engine is a bit more free.

      A small video for the sound part


      Sound part, yes, a huge difference, turbo whine/whistle is clearly heard during acceleration near 2,000 RPM. Initially was good to drive but is drawing unnecessary attention of the other road users so have reverted to OEM exhaust for now and once the lockdown is over shall redesign and make another one that is slightly more silent that what was just attempted.

      Started observing the rust at this localised area. Shall be removing the beading completely and treating the complete door once after getting rid of that rust.

      Applied Shoe polish to the plastic cladding to get that 'black' colour back and I am happy that it is working well so far. Has seen rains etc and all it takes is one wipe, the black colour is black.
