    Another update, having to dodge the showers. Really need to get a garage

    Chopped the nearside box in half to add a branch from the main exhaust path


    Added a pipe to go straight out the box


    Chopped the offside box to make the outlet central


    And here's one I made earlier Added the RS tips with the valve and sprayed it all black


    And fitted to the car. Maybe the only/first Volvo 850 with Focus RS tailpipes in the UK?



    Now to make the actuator control box. Got a cheapo Arduino Nano off ebay for 3, some stripboard, a remote control receiver, a transistor, some wires and a plastic box to put it all in. Mixed it all together, left it to bake for 30 minutes and this is what it came out like


    Luckily the power supply for the tailgate wiper is switched by the ignition and is routed through an easily accessible connector on the D pillar. So the power is connected, just got to route the actuator wiring through the boot floor somewhere and then test it

    I'm looking forward to the demo video of this mod Dave, and the exhaust looks lovely with it's new tips, at least there is some good uses in the world for RS Focus bits.....lol

    Thanks bud, it's looks ok, maybe sticks out a bit but i think i just wanted to see the shiny lol.

    Got it all working now. Can't get a video just yet as it's raining again.

    Exhaust note is quite deep when the valve is open and when closed it's great for cruising without the droning exhaust in the background.

    Eventually i want to integrate it into my data display project so i can set it to open at a certain throttle position.

    There is a valve in the nearside tailpipe to divert the flow through offside silencing route.

    The only drawback is when cold the steam coming out the back only comes from one tailpipe when the valve is open/closed.

    I have the same problem, mine when cold only comes out of the off side pipe.

    Finally managed to get a video done

    Use headphones for the best sound experience, as the difference is really in the lower frequencies
