    VXR Exhaust ??

    I decided to clean up the rear engine compartment and make some sort of free flow - ie remove the silly looking plastic resonator stuff.

    I'm sure many of you have done so. I do not want to alter the OEM stuff just in case I want to change it back.

    I see that Riva makes an aluminum free flow pipe but I'm not sure how it connects to (or if it does) the stock exhaust - price is ok but I know the aluminum pipe will make it louder.

    I have found a 180 degree 83mm silicon piece and can mate it to a 90 elbow and connect to the stock rubber exhaust. Does anyone know of a rubber (silicon) pipe that will fit without coupling two pieces together?

    A rubber (silicon) exhaust will be quieter than an aluminum one. There probably is no performance gain - but - it sure looks nicer/cleaner without. BTW I found a bolt off the motor that had come out


    Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.

    Tim

    Check this thread from a while back. Totals parts cost ~$60 if I remember correctly.

    Those of you who have the free flow or thru hull... Are you still using it or did you go back to stock?

    thanks

    Drone, sound, or loudness?

    Thanks

    The drone kinda sucked.. I really just wanted to make it easier the wet-dry vacuum out the water in the bottom of the hull after riding/rinsing the engine. The resonator delete made that possible with no noticeable increase in drone.

    I went with the Riva thru hull exhaust...Takes a little getting used to but I love it and I think it cleans up the looks under the seat and saves some weight. I experimented once with the exhaust on a Sea Doo jet boat and ended up sinking it in the middle of the lake and barely being able to tow it back in and pull it out of the water. I stick to the good stuff now.

    Here's what the Tommy Jordan exhaust mod sounds like. Nothing like a thru-hull.
