Talking Supersprint twin exhaust.

Just wondering if anyone has fitted a supersprint twin exhaust to there Evo or know anything about it. I'm planning on getting this sometime this week but thought I would post on here just to see if any of you guys have anything to say.

I have a 1.4 8v Evo and I'm not looking for any extra power 'really' just more for cosmetic reasons, I also want an exhaust you can actually see!

This is the link to where I'm getting it from: http://www.gazzellaracing.com/produc...at=3624&page=1

Oh and 1 more thing would there be any point in me getting this: http://www.supersprint.com/en/prod-c...converter.aspx ... (Sorry if this seems dumb) or would the stock fit one work just as well?

Thanks.

Re: Supersprint twin exhaust.

Hi,

Dont know for the round 2x76mm exhaust, I have the original one and I never see one fitted. The good question is how it will look at rear, as you have to cut your rear bumper I think ?
And effectively, for the power it will not change anything...

For the exhaust manifold, it will remplace the original and remove the catalytic converter that is integrated... After that, you are not road legal anymore, and you will have check engine that light up.
Our 1.4 8V is quite good for its ratings, but if your really search power the better thing is to exchange the car against a 1.4 16V or even a turbo one

Hope this help a little bit

Re: Supersprint twin exhaust.

Its the same size as the one ive got, 2 x 3inch, nice abarth look at the rear.

You shouldn't have to cut the rear bumper as the sporting isn't cut out by much. Power *might* increase by a massive 2-3bhp nothing more though.

That manifold will increase power, but you would need to do modifications to get a catalyst fitted after it (200 cell) but it won't be type approved so would render it off-road use only. You wont preticularly have the MIL light on if you know what you are doing, mine is a complete turbo back system and the catalyst is non-existent (removed) and I haven't got the MIL light on, all I used was an adapter (The Lambda Sensors are 18mm if you need one).

Mine:


Edit: Just noticed that you are buying from gazzella racing, watch what you are doing, as many people have had a problem with them, although thats where I bought my decat from and it came no problem

You exhaust looks great

For the manifold yes you can add a catalytic converter, add lambda fix, ...
But it is a lot of work (and money) to a low gain on a 1.4 77CV...

Cutting the rear bumper for me, isnt really a problem just have to do a good job of it. And it is for cosmetic reasons I want to have it fitted, and also to give it a bit of a rumble as well.

Also I would exchange the car if I hadn't done so much to it already, plus it was gift so I cant complain about anything I just want to improve ride and looks not really about adding speed.

Thats looks brill from behind very abarth'esk, just what I was looking for! I'm guessing yours is a ragazzon twin then? 2-3bhp is better than none at all Im hoping it would give me a bit more throttle response though?!

As much as I would like to fit a new manifold... to me its seems like it will be way to much cost and effort for little in return. Also the fact I would have to buy extra parts to make it legal (Even if you managed to get around it) seems like a bit to much effort to me.

If I just went and bought that supersprint when would I have to get anything else with it, or would it just fit straight in replace of the current one (I expect it to as it states it fits my car and spec) ?


Thanks again Guys

Mine is a custom built exhaust system with a 2.25" (About the 58mm) bore. The only Ragazzon part i've got is the de-cat. You'd only notice the extra noise more than the actual power, just remember that a NA (Naturally ASPIRATED) engine works better and more efficient with some back pressure where as a turbo requires no backpressure.

Making it legal, and making it fun are two different things Its all down to the MOT emissions that will might screw you over, I've never seen the 1.4 8v engine bay so no idea if you have a heatshield that wraps around the catalyst, I know my turbo does.

As for the second point, if you are getting a stainless box with stainless pipework, I'd advise that you get the stainless center section aswell as your exhaust will be single piece, I mean that from the flexi right to the exhaust tailpipe is one big complete unit meaning you'd have to cut the pipework at the right place to make it fit. And another thing to note is that stainless steel and mild steel don't like being together, the stainless "eats" away at the mild steel causing premature failure of the mild steel component.

Im not really sure what you mean here^ sorry, could you explain a little bit more. I understand what an NA is but not what you mean about the "power, noise and pressure". lol

In response to the manifold and metal wear, I will have a word with the mechanic (Family friend) to see what he can do and suggests the best way about going. Obviously I want it to be more "fun" but feel it would be to much bother when most of the year I'm at university and cant take my car with me so money would be an issue.

Tbh all I want is an exhaust which is abarth'esk with a nice noise, but just need a bit of directing of what I should get and do!!! (Probably should have stated this in the first place

Re: Supersprint twin exhaust.

My honest thoughts are go and get prices form various custom exhaust manufacturers as then you can explain what you want to them, so much easier than just buying one without hearing it. I just suggested to the guy that done mine that I want it to sound a bit like a "cherrybomb".


Edit: forgot to tell you:

Backpressure: Where the exhaust system self-pressurises caused by restrictions in the exhaust system, for example exhaust silencers and catalysts.

Power: The actual BHP output of the car.

Noise: What you hear from the exhaust.

Re: Supersprint twin exhaust.

That is fantastic video shows exactly the sort of thing I want. I will just have to have a search around for somewhere which will create one for me.

Cherry Bomb sound is very nice, and actually quite discreet unlike the ones Ive heard round me which actually set burglar alarms off. Was it difficult to find somewhere which would do this for you? or reasonably simple?

Re: Supersprint twin exhaust.

just went round a garage near by where I live and suggested two places, I got both priced up and went for the cheapest and can't complain with the result.
