The exhaust on the car is a tad noisy when all 4 holes are open so we’ve been running around with one hole on each side plugged. We’ve been looking for a more elegant solution that would allow us to choose the volume.
The starting point, Vauxhall Omega V6 2.5 throttle body, nice and cheap on ebay for £5 !
After chopping the throttle body in half with a hack saw and removing excess bits with an angle grinder it was time to turn it down on the lathe.
This is how it will work in the exhaust.
Here’s one half down and the other half still with the rest of the metal on it.
Now both are cut out on the lathe.
Test fit with valves closed.
Hold drilled through exhaust tip, throttle body metal fitted in test fitted.
