Each race tube is basically a performance exhaust centre section with no central silencer fitted. Exhaust race tubes are also called non resonated pipes or race pipes. As they have no silencer box they are less restrictive compared to standard producing power gains and making the car sound louder. Originally developed for the competition market they are very popular with track day enthusiasts and modifiers alike. They have not been decibel tested but seem fine for most MOT testers. The sound level varies depending on which rear silencer they are fitted with. The material utilised in production is mild steel which is aluminised for corrosion resistance then painted. Fitting should be as easy as swapping an original centre section as they are produced to fit the cars existing hanger were possible. To get the most from this product combine it with an induction kit and back box. For maximum power combine this product with a full performance exhaust system and an induction kit.
