I am on the fence... need to make a decision in time for my 1,000 mile service. Having never heard it, please share your thoughts... thank you
Patrick has a Stage 2 in Newport. I have a quicksilver exhaust and will be at Newport Euro for my 1000 mile service tomorrow morning.ROCKCENTER said:louder = good (if it sounds good)
however, once the diffuser is cut, it is cut, and there is no switching back... I wish that dealerships would stop selling their demo's and let them serve their intended purpose. Anyone local to Newport Beach with a stage II for me to hear? (wishful thinking) :bow:
i was also under the impression that the QS is softer than Stage2. I have the QS and love it. To me it sounds absolutely perfect. At about 650 and an easy self install, i don't see how you can go wrong.Stan said:I thought the Quicksilver was supposed to be much quieter than the Lotus Stage 2 setup?!?!? It does seem to have a noticeably smaller muffler can from what I can see in the PICs..and that is where the muffling occurs.
I would suggest that you PM PatrickO to see if you can arrange to hear his Stage II and head to Newport European tomorrow to hear offroader35's QS exhaust (or arrange a ride). You will then be one of the few (if any) that have heard both.offroadr35 said:Patrick has a Stage 2 in Newport.

I have heard both, but not a lot of time with the Stage 2. The problem is that its difficult to compare what this exhaust sounds like to an exhaust I heard a week ago.ChrisB said:You will then be one of the few (if any) that have heard both.
