I know Slide says there is no drone which is good to hear, would be good to hear your perspective too.

Just context on why I'm asking - I am getting the car dynamatted - floor pans, rear firewall, rear seat area because that's how much I like a quiet car on the highway. I enjoy driving with windows down and listening to a sporty exhaust around town, but on highway, I like the car to settle down and be out of the way. I have done exhausts on previous cars I have owned and always regretted the ones that introduce drone at steady revs.
I'll try to get a few videos this weekend. I can get the idle and revs for sure, the driving will depend on the weather. I cant imagine that there would be any drone since we are still utilizing the factory exhaust.

Here's a video of the decat pipe at idle in the different exhaust modes and some Revs. I don't have one on the road yet. weather is still rainy again today.

Check out the description in the video for which mode the exhaust is in at the different times in the video.

Thanks for all the interest!
First article is taking a little longer than expected but will be done this week.
We will verify fitment, shoot some videos and post pricing and start taking orders for these.

The v-band/clamp flange is no ordinary off the shelf flange so that is part of the delay- --we are machining these from stainless to match up with the stainless exhaust tubing.

Leave it to Lotus to use something obscure. Looking forward to seeing the finished goods.

Can't wait to get my hands on one. I'm pumped someone has finally started putting out products for the 400. GRP for the win

We just added these Decat/Race pipes to our website!
We will be doing a small initial batch of these and see how they sell, so get your order in asap to reserve yours.
The initial run should be done on/around the 29/30th.

*The prototype pipe in the pictures doesnt have as nice of a finish as the production run will.

BWR currently sells the Larini version - We have a lightly used on on our website!
If there was enough interest we could make them though.
