” Get The Power!!”
Michael Larwood contacted RS Fabrications and expressed to Russell & Shane how disappointed he was with his Clio V6 standard exhaust system and the lack of performance after market systems available for his V6 projectile!!
RS booked the Clio in, and after pulling the stock system off the back of the vehicle , set about to fabricate a compact, stainless steel performace replacement cat back system.
First off a laser cut flange was ordered to mate up with the standard downpipe configuration and then Twin, Duel pass oval silencers were chosen in this application. With such a short silencer box the duel pass effectively doubles the length of the silencers.
Shane fabricated twin 90 degree exit pipes from the flange ,with a balance pipe between the two, and then Tig welded up the silencer boxes. The LH box was made detachable, via a laser cut 3 bolt flange, for ease of installation.
“It was a bugger to get the silencers up in the limited space available, but we wanted to make our system so that the we could retain the standard rear bumper” said Shane, “We’ve seen others, and they cut out the grid section out of the bumper to get their silencer boxes in!!” Again, the cheap option that somtimes retains the extra Twin Cat, Balance Pipe, Standard on the OEM system.
Twin 76.2mm [3.0"] tailpipes were opted for, a little larger that standard so that they fit nicely in the rear bumper apertures.
The finished system is a remarkable transformation in performance & V6 roar, that the standard system just failed to unleash!
Do what Michael did with his V6 Clio, and “Recevez la puissance!”
