Range Rover Classic Sports Stainless Steel Exhaust Systems
Sports Exhaust System – Stainless Steel – V8 Models
Suitable for all Classic V8 models (pre Aug 95 – see note below), our stainless steel Sports Exhausts comprise tubular manifolds and large bore, single pipe systems with sport silencers. Designed to increase power and torque, Sports Systems improve the look of your Range Rover as well. The sound is pure V8 but comfortably refined inside the car at cruising speeds.
Each system includes fitting instructions, gaskets special mounting and fitting to assemble system utilising existing mountings where applicable.
Also available separately – manifold fitting kit and ThermoTec exhaust insulation wrap.
Note: Catalyst equipped vehicles (1992/3 on).
Our sports system could be used to replace the catalyst exhaust system on UK cars registered prior to August 1995 (subject to any change of legislation, please enquire). Current MOT emissions limits could allow non cat equipped vehicles to pass an MOT (providing the engine is set up and tuned correctly) p to this registration date. Please specify when ordering as manifolds with lamda sensor holes will be required. Our system part number carries a ‘WS' suffix.
Enhancements for Sports Exhaust
Our Sports Exhaust Systems are designed to give an increase in power and torque on an otherwise unmodified vehicle. The way they achieve this is by helping the engine to ‘breathe out’ more efficiently.
Fitting K&N air filters at the same time as our Sports System will help the engine to ‘breathe in’ more efficiently – by removing the restrictive standard air filter – yielding even better results. For K&N filters, see our Fuel Section.
To gain maximum benefit from our Sports System, particularly in large capacity V8’s (3.9, 4.2 or even 4.6 litre versions), fit our Big Valve Performance cylinder heads. These heads are ported and gas-flowed to help the engine achieve optimum efficiency. For Performance cylinder heads, refer to our V8 Engine section.
Finally, don’t forget your fuel system: all this extra efficiency will be lost if your carbs are worn out or your injection system is not up to scratch! The original carbs should be adequate for an otherwise unmodified 3.5 engine fitted with a Sports System and K&N filters (provided they are correctly set up). For the same vehicle fitted with modified cylinder heads or a bigger engine, however, we would recommend fitting one of our 4 barrel carb kits (see our Fuel Section).
Similarly, standard efi vehicles will need no modifications to the injection system when fitting a Sports System and K&N. If further modifications are being considered, such a change of camshaft, Performance cylinder heads or a bigger engine, we strongly recommend a remapped ecu to provide the correct fueling. We can remap your existing ecu to suit your engine’s requirements exactly, giving crisper throttle response, more power and torque and better fuel efficiency.
