Just recently bought an 05 elise. The exhaust rattles when cold at idle (sounds like it might be packing?). I took off the diffuser to see if it was a loose exhaust clamp or heat shield and it's definitely coming from inside the muffler. Can anyone figure out what this is? Thanks in advance.

I think Borla's have a large muffler like that. Don't quote me though :shrug:

It could be a Borla but that pipe on the end looks welded on. Like I said very interesting.

For sure a home made, by someone. Probably time to get something fresh, with maybe a little more "muffle" ability.

Yeah, I think you guys are right. The diffuser is cut like it used to have a stage 2 - no idea why it'd be replaced with this. :(
