QuickSilver Titans are a Titanium / Stainless hybrid. Why a hybrid system? – Because it gives you the best of everything!
• Titanium Silencer: Serious weight saving and stunning resonance.
• T304 Stainless tubing for strength and durability.
• CNC flanges.
• Plug-and-play active valves (wireless control modules are also available for earlier models without exhaust button).
• Designed and manufactured in house, exclusively in Great Britain. Tested Worldwide.
One of our criticisms of the R8’s stock exhaust is that it sounds too ‘dry’. There is minimal resonant sustain within the OE system and we worked tirelessly to create a ‘wetter’, full bodied soundtrack with unrivalled tone throughout the rev range.
We re-wrote the R8 rulebook to achieve this by designing an X-pipe pressure exchanger with a trick up its sleeve – our asymmetric balance pipe. The balance pipe produces the automotive equivalent of a flanger effect for your R8. The signals from each bank are mixed by the X-pipe and played in unison by the tail pipes. The balance pipe then allows a minute (circa > 10 millisecond) displacement of a portion of the audio signal. This creates a variable time-delayed copy of the X-Pipe exhaust note; resulting in a thick, ‘doubled up’ soundtrack with greatly accentuated peaks and troughs.
The X-Pipe + Balance pipe combination creates a rich symphonic soundtrack with punchy lows, thick mid-range resonance, and crisp highs with pops, bangs and crackles reminiscent of a firework display. And don’t just take my word for it! Our development car was borrowed by Sounding Sweet – the recording specialists who provide the automotive soundtracks to all your favourite video games and movies. They described the QuickSilver R8 as “The best sounding car we’ve ever recorded” – and their roster is extensive!
Without Valve Kit - Retains OEM (in-car) functionality
Our active valve sport exhaust systems contain two separate gas paths, and an electronic or pneumatic flap-valve that decides which path is taken. Both have two distinct levels of sound and are slightly louder than stock. With the valves closed, the system takes on a more civilised note and when they’re open, you’re given a sporty note throughout the rev range.
These valves are integrated into the car’s existing controls and function depending on the ECU mapping. This can then be further manipulated either with the dedicated exhaust button or by switching the driving modes.
With Valve Kit - Key Fob functionality
Our pneumatic valve kit includes the installation wiring, replacement tubing and 2 key fobs. The fobs allow you to open and close the valves at will when the car’s ignition is on.
• Wonderful deep muscle rich sound.
• Valves for optimum sound.
• Titanium silencer casing for weight reduction.
• Improved throttle response.
• Retains original tips to keep the look.
• Choice of Remote or Factory valve control
