    Default Sorpio 2.6 TD Free flow exhaust

    Hello. Have any one fit a free flow exhaust on scorpio? My Cat is empty , only one big box to the rear. Can I take that box out and fit free flow box? Will there be better perfomance anf fuel consumption? Is it bad for engine?

    Go for it. 76mm (3 inch) from the turbo backwards.

    that is optional, but if you want to, a straight through 76mm freeflow to stop a bit of the turbo whistle

    you don't need much of a silencer on a turbo diesel, the turbo stops most of the noise by interrupting the sound wave from each combustion detonation

    I doubt that you will get any improvement with that 2.6 by putting a bigger exhaust on. It will sound different though. More like a truck.

    Hey, wait a bit. Go put a 76mm straight through pipe on and turn your diesel pump wide open so that you can also "blow coal" Will look awesome.

    In my opinion going to a free flow alone wil increase the power and better feul consumption but the number of gain wil be so low that it will only be noticed when vehicle is on a dyno.

    To add on what Chris said for the freeflow to be really affective and notice the improvement you will have to spend more than just a free flow. Change airfilter to a performance tipe filter if it uses a mechanical diesel pump you will have to have it adjusted or if it is controlled by ECU have it remapped.

    So in my opinion if you're looking into gaining from a freeflow allone you are waisting your time on YouTube there is a video done by some Ausies where they tested it and shows the figures using a dyno.

    Although a freeflow in my opinion does sound good on a turbo diesel.(I've got a freeflow, performance filter and map on my diesel not a mahindra though).

    Wat is n performance filter? Daai ding wat duiwe en klippe uit hou, en pretty much alles anders deurlaat?
    Is dit aan te beveel op n 4x4 wat stofpad ry?
    Vrywaring: Niks wat ek hier kwyt raak moet hoegenaamd as feite beskou word nie.

    You will get less turbo lag and slightly better throttle response. But yes, without adjusting the fueling, the gains will be minimal.

    Dit is ongelukag n groot nadeel van die filter. Ek persoonlik verander net trug na ander filter as beplan om stofpad of in veld te ry. Het als so reg so dit neem my 10min om conversion te doen

    he has already taken the cat out and got that tiny improvement. Any gain by going with a larger exhaust will not be worth the expense, as you say, the gains will be minimal. I think they will be negligible.

    I agree with you guys 100%. Leave these filters for those with platkarre that are hopefully cheap to repair after all the dust it has inhaled

    This would be the correct tipe of performance filter to fit your application and perhaps requirements. Not sure if they do come for all types of vehicles that will have to be confirmed. Autostyle motersport does stock some of the models. Name:  Screenshot_20200602-145641.jpg
