QuickSilver's newly developed 'Sports' exhaust system is designed to let the 4 cylinder turbo engine breathe more freely and sound great. Maintains the stock 2.25" diameter for maximum response.
Drastic weight reduction - from 40 lbs. to 18.6 lbs! Twin 3" exhaust tips gives your Mini an individual and assertive look. Simple Bolt-On design with no cutting required. This system eliminates the secondary resonator from the stock system.
Pleasant increase in volume with an encouraging 'Rasp' on acceleration - just right for Urban use.
The QuickSilver team has engineered the 'Sports' system's internal design to allow the volume and flow to increase in proportion with rpm. This provides the engine with a deeper tone at low engine speeds rising to a unique, higher pitched and crisper exhaust note at higher rpm.
Attention to detail has always been a hallmark of QuickSilver products and this is no exception. Using Type 304 austenitic stainless steel, the pipes are mandrel bent to keep a constant internal diameter throughout the length ensuring an even flow of exit gases.

QUICKSILVER EXHAUST APPLICATION CHART:
The sound is Awesome!!! Very deep and throaty at low RPM's and gets a bit higher pitched after 4500 RPMs. NO droaning at all at cruise speeds such as 45 or 65mph. It gets a bit bassy if you are at a high gear say 6th going 40mph and give it a little gas. Simple down shift takes care of it. I'll see after the breakin time how much it settles down. Right now though, it is great!!! You can really hear the turbo spooling up to redline now, pulls much faster and stronger, and revs faster as well. Traction control kept going off! There maybe something about that 30+hp they claim, I can really understand it being possible since it Does eliminate both the resonator and one Cat. Very happy!! and very simple install!!
NOTE: Some states (like California) have ever tightening requirements for emissions testing and inspections. Always check your local regulations on compliance for street use.
