Yes it is quite loud. I'm willing to bet that ones neighbors would find it obnoxiously loud.apkom said:. I thought stage 2 was very loud, no?
I'll leave the hp gain to someone else. I was told the price was ~$700, but I don't think that is the installed price.eliseowner2b said:I think the sound of the stock exhaust is nice. How much power is stage II suppose to make and how much does it cost?
I had thought so too, but I went back and found this thread and it seems HP gains were never reported for sure_JD_ said:I could've sworn that at Barber the Lotus folks stated that the stage 1 was a couple pounds lighter w/ no hp gain but stage 2 was significant weight savings w/ 3-4 hp. Has that claim changed now or am I just wrong?
But assuming that the stock exhaust was well designed, why would a different cat-back only with no corresponding intake mods be expected to change much?evomind said:i cant believe a decent exhaust with as few bends as possible cant make any more horsepower than the stocker...
