Re: My Little Red Devil.

nice stilo - thought about getting the wheels redone in black or white, either would look awesome..
Always loved the schui front bumper - makes the front end of the stilo look miles better and the front is its best feature to start with

Thank you for your comments

Yes I am considering a paint job on the wheels, it has been suggested to me to get them powder coated anthracite color, (Stu u little ) time and more importantly money will tell

My Little Red Devil Part2.

Well I am happy to have finally removed and replaced the exhaust system on the car as it was pants lol

I could not afford the full load of decent materials, the mandrel compression or the sports car but I am truly happy with the new kit that I have. It is a 304 graded metal system which is now days the standard grade down from 307 a few years back. It is a cat back system which removed the second cat that the 2.4 comes with, removed and replaced the silencer middle box and the ever so quite back box exhaust with a new one.

Unbelievable how restrictive the car was with the second cat, middle silencer and back box in the original system. The car pulls much better now and revs more freely now too.

I did try and choose a new unique tip for the exhaust but I could not find any other which looked better than this one, and yes it is pretty much the same exhaust tip deisgn as the GP schumacher exhaust back box.

It looks good and sounds good too, the guys actually managed to produce the exhaust sound that pedantically asked for which was to be grunty, garglyish, not highly loud, not boy racer sounding and not a cheap sporty sound seriously they actually achieved it and the gargle tone lol not just when idle, I can make it gargle when I am going along too love it

These are the guys who supplied me with the build

Here are the pics, feel free to post your comments

Re: My Little Red Devil Part2

Looking good mate. The pipes exit from under the car a bit nearer the centre line than on the GP, but looks great anyway. The centre section looks very similar to the one I had installed by Longlife (didn't need a stainless tail section as the GP edition has one as standard).

Than you very much mate

I am truly happy with the latest mod, the car drives so much better now, absolutely ridiculous how restrictive the standard middle silencer and back box were, honestly

Next step is to modify the air intake Touring car style, no induction kits at all and simply replaced the standard air filter with a BMC filter

Yes it is also an option mate, I suppose it is cheaper and it will achieve the same purpose

I'm wondering if the reason his Schumi feels like it's breathing more easily is the new rear box. 'Cos I have to say that on my GP (which already had a stainless rear box as you know) I honestly didn't notice any performance difference when the 2nd cat was removed.

Sounds nicer though...

Oh yes whether it was the 2nd cat or not it sounds way better now, put it this way you can actually hear the engine tones through the exhaust now where as before you could have mistaken this beast for a hybrid lol

I am so glad that the car has more punch now, it will be even better when i replace the air box filter. I am pretty sure you are right Phil as you have already tested this out in your own schuey, i am just glad the car has improved and is till keeping me very happy
