Performance and Quality from Quicksilver - UK's premier exhaust products manufacturer!

The original manifold has four short primaries and a restrictive collector followed by two catalytic converters in series. These catalytic converters have cores with about 500 cells per square inch (cpsi) giving a flow area of approximately 60%.

The Quicksilver Manifold and 'Race-Cat' has four longer tuned length primaries followed by a single free-flow catalytic converter. This 'Cat' has a microscopically thin Fecralloy metallic core of 200 cpsi to which the essential Platinum and Rhodium are applied at a much greater density (25 grams per cubic foot compared to 10 grams on a typical aftermarket product).

This all results in a flow area of approcimately 85% whilst remaining clean enought to meet emissions requirements.

[ ] The Fecralloy metallic core is very durable, far more so than ceramic cores typically used.
[ ] Incorporates a triple-walled flexible section to a much higher spec than the twin-wall OE item.
[ ] Accelerated gas-flow draws heat away more efficiently.
[ ] Bolt-On fit - precision engineered.
[ ] The two original lambda sensors are retained.
[ ] Dyno tests show a 12 bhp improvement and increased mid-range torque.
[ ] Type 304 Stainless Steel - Raw Finish

In the early 1970’s the average life expectancy of a standard (mild steel) exhaust system was only 18 months - There was a demand for something better.

QuickSilver Exhausts grew from a prominent Fast-Fit chain and was founded in 1973, originally in Esher, Surrey.

A family business, originally formed to concentrate on distributing stainless steel systems, which grew into producing it’s own range of exhausts.

QuickSilver have always manufactured it’s standard systems to duplicate the original, as closely as possible, using the same thickness of material, the same mountings and the same internal silencer designs to ensure the correct appearance, performance and sound.

QuickSilver moved briefly to the Old Kent Road in southeast London before settling down in Battersea, central London from 1985 to 2003.

In 2004 QuickSilver moved to new purpose-built premises in Wormley, Surrey to focus on the creation of a modern QuickSilver Sports range of systems for the world’s finest cars. With a catalogue featuring over 3000 models QuickSilver believe they now have the largest range in the world. Please check for your system in our catalogue page.
