Tuning a 2.5v6 estate with new exhaust


Recommended Posts

I have a very nice condition well maintained low mileage (59K) black estate which has started to grow on me. I was going to upgrade to an XF but have become increasingly impressed with the grip of the AWD system in the wet weather and would like to see if I can get a bit more power and better economy from the 2.5 litre petrol engine. I've seen replacement rear silencers from Adamesh and bespoke stainless systems from Proflow Exhausts in Brierly Hill in W Midlands but don't know what the results are. Are they just noisier or do they actually provide better performance and economy, as I'd like both!

Not sure I want to go into the realms of chip upgrades as they seem expensive for not a lot of extra power.

Has anyone done some exhaust changes and got more power and better economy?

There no gains to be had on normally aspirated cars with out spending big money

should have gone for the 3.0

remap will only give a couple of hp and as for exhaust next to nothing, a couple hp again. not worth the money for so little gains

exhaust upgrade on the V6 only just make more noise and dont sound the best on a V6, like they do on a V8
