    Started her up today

    Hi All,

    My Cobra came back from having the side pipes fitted this week and thought I would start the engine up. My sidepipes are packable to keep noise levels down, so should be good for SVA noise levels. I connected the battery, turned the switch and wow what a fantastic noise ! The ground felt like it was shaking and to top it all my side pipes are already packed to the brim !

    Will SVA accept max power at 2500 revs for the noise test, or will they think I am taking the pee ?

    Ian.

    Congrats Ian!! :thumb:

    I think even the guys at SVA would query the claim that max power is at 2500rpm.

    I quoted 4750rpm and sailed through at 94DbA

    Mind you, the pipes were packed so full of crap, small babies etc, they blew up like balloons as hardly any gas escaped

    Pipes were packed/unpacked at the bottom of Purley Way on the way to Mitcham, so I only drove it like that for a couple of miles :-} :-}
    Cheers !!

    I'd like to know how loud your pipes are now young David. :thumb:
    I suspect an SVA test would be out of reach.

    Hi Ian,

    Was you I met or was it your brother that lived in Hackbridge with a blue Cilo?,We got talking about Cobras when I parked mine there. He said or you said, that you sell parts for Chevy engines in Sutton? If so give me your number as I need some parts for my motor.

    David.
