Title: Esseesse Exhaust
Post by: Jay88 on August 21, 2013, 01:43:10 pm
Hi,

Had my car a few months now, bought second hand, very happy so far. Just 1 thing is the exhaust note, my car has the esseesse kit fitted but the exhaust note seems like a standard rear box. Read some things online about popping and crackling, mine does none of this. wondering if the previous owner has removed the exhaust and replaced with a standard one before selling, been looking at pics online of the exhaust but I can't see a difference between them, is there a way I can check the authenticity.

The SS kit doesn't include an exhaust, it will remain standard unless someone fits a Monza or aftermarket system :thumb:

I was under the impression from looking online that the Esseesse kit comes with a different exhaust to increase performance and tone. have I misread  ???

I've seen videos of standard esseesse exhausts that sound a lot better than mine, really confused now

Is the system stainless steel on the car, the esseesse exhaust is stainless from the join just pass the middle of the car back??

Yes the esseesse kit comes with a different exhaust. Original is 1 piece from the cat back. Esseesse one is two piece centre section and back box. From what I can see on mine it's also bigger bore. Don't think it's stainless. If you are going to get one go for supersprint. If you buy a supersprint back box it'll probs come with a sleeve to cut and join to your original 1 piece system

How many miles on the car and kit? As the kit may have been fitted at a later date and may have not had a chance to clog up the baffles and deepen the note yet.

Few options,
- Let the miles build up and see if the note actually deepens
- Try and find a off the shelf performance sports exhaust have a look here - http://www.italo-tuning.de/exhausts-engine-14-c-49_77_1981_1984.html - Just double check that it lists the Evo Multi-Air and not the T-Jet as they 'might' be different but other Punto owner will be able to double confirm that for you
- Get a custom exhaust shop to modify your factory exhaust, unsure if the factory Evo system is a single or twin silencer box system, if it is a twin box setup simply get the centre box removed to add some extra volume
