PostPosted: Mon Jun 11, 2018 8:13 pm    Post subject: Different silencers left/right Reply with quote

Hi all

I've potentially got to remove my left hand silencer for a warranty claim.

The question is - I've still got my original PSE boxes, which aren't blowing. As the fault is only on one side, is it a problem just putting back the left hand original box leaving the new box on the rhs? Are there any issues running different design boxes on each side? I can imagine that they run different back pressures etc. Wouldnt want to make more problems than I'm solving.

Cheers

Dave

Can't see that as an issue if they are both the same design box just one new and one old

It'll be fine apart from difference in noise and appearance.

Thanks for that - they're not the same design - one would be an aftermarket valved exhaust and the other an original Porsche PSE box.

As you and Alex have said - I can't see that it would be a problem - just very keen not to upset my currently (touching wood!) reliable engine. And it would only be temporary, whilst I sort out the warranty issue.

Cheers

Dave

With regards to uneven back pressure, would only be the same svenario as one of them blowing.
