Hi Everyone,

Blackwatch and Von Hep have teamed up as Blackwatch will be the exclusive distributor of Von Hep products in North America.

For those of you that don't know Von Hep has put out a few really cool products for the Elise and Exige.

Exhaust:
Both high exit and low exit exhausts provide a more aggressive note around town but really wail when on the second cam. This is a cost-effective, lightweight alternative to the stock boat anchor.

Rear Panel eliminator and plate bracket:
This is the best looking rear panel kit on the market. Very stylish water-jet cut, powerdercoated aluminum supports the rear diffuser, mounts in the same holes, and completes the look.

Dash Bag:
This just makes too much sense. This ballistic nylon dashbag is cut to fit the front dash cubby perfectly. It velcros in place and can be taken with you when you leave. This went in my car immediately.

We're very pleased to have Von Hep on board with Blackwatch Racing. If you have any questions or comments drop me a PM or a phone call.

Wasn't much demand for the dual exit, so it has been dropped.

This is in addition to 2bular. The Von Hep is a good exhaust for the money.

If we have 10 people sign-up, we will do $449 for the high-exit and $549 for the Low-exit.

High exit has less piping. Plus it leaves you open to having an un-penetrated diffuser in the future.

i knew that, but what is the actual weight savings?

im leaning more towards the high exit because of the saved weight

but like th looks of the low exit much more

I don't know. Guessing maybe an extra pound or pound and a half of pipe on the low exit model?

Fred/Robert,

Will there be a true 2.5" piping-all-the-way-through VonHep version available?

I asked VonHep last year and he had said that tooling costs made that prohibitive.

Perhaps this latest marketing arrangement would change that situation.

Thanks!

No there won't be. The 2.5" add a ton of noise and kills the torque.
