    Default X-Power Exhausts

    Hi,

    I know they are rare items but I'm searching for a pair of X-Power exhaust for a saloon.
    I'm still with originals one and I'd like a more american V8 sound.
    I could go for the Zero but after listening to several vidéos I'd like to have a more baritone sound.

    the removal of the tube in the std boxes works well ,not quite as low a note as x powers i think .

    Hi Pete,
    Yes I find plenty of youtube videos with xpower, cobra, powerflow exhausts but not with the original boxes with tube removed (like ceedy suggest).

    Can someone who had modified 'standard' exhausts do a video for the collective please? We'd be very grateful.

    I have seen a few pictures somewhere on the Internet of somebody who had done it. Basically they cut the top of the silencer open, cut a pipe out and rewelded it back up.
