Hi Hampshirebiker would like copy of post war engines and any comments on reducing the exhaust sound on my mk v as the two standard silencers don't do much. Regards Phil 1.

Gents,

There are a number of replica part suppliers providing additional quietening materials including formed inserts for silencers. Have a look on line.

Hi All, I have found a significant improvement in reducing exhaust noise by inserting a twelve inch length of one mm thick steel mesh rolled to fit inside pipe and silencer available on line. Cheers Phil 1.
