  • Raceco silencer.

    I put in a RFQ for a raceco silencer today. If anyone else are thinking about buying anything from them, do tell me and we can probably share the shipping cost.

    It may sound stupid but MEASURE the collector tube diameter. I relied on my feeble memory and ordered the inlet tube of the can 2 1/4" instead of the required 2 1/2".....that cost me some inelegant jumping through fabrication hoops.

    FWIW, the Raceco inlet tube has a bell flare with clamp to slip over a tube of the same size

      Thanks, I've already measured the tube with a caliper (2.5"). I also sent photos of my current setup to avoid any problems.

        Magnus,

        I need to do something to my exhaust so I can legally run at Laguna Seca. I was black flagged there for sound last year. :(

        Can you post here or send me a PM with the current cost? (the economy sucks, but that has been really good for the exchange rate!).

        Thanks,

        Tom

          Tom, the Raceco web site shows 440 pounds for the 6.25 inch version and 450 pounds for the 7.25 inch. The pound is about 1.5 dollars now? Much better than 2 to 1!

            450 GBP = USD 685.

            Amedeo recommended that we'd arrange shipping ourselves.
            The dimensions he gave are 120cm x 35cm x25 cm. Weight: 10 kg.

            UPS wants USD220 to ship the system from his shop to my home.

            If I double the weight and the width, UPS wants USD 331. Quite a saver there. When I try to enter the dimensions for three systems, UPS' website protests about a too large package. Feel free to try out Fedex and other services to see if there is a better price out there.

              I had a silencer shipped by Parcel Force which I believe is part of the Royal Mail system.

              At the time they were much less than UPS, less than 1/2 if I recall. That was 6 years ago.

              Parcel Force may have limited insurance coverage so a bit of a risk. I have had no problems with loss or damage. Shipping time one week.

              I just bought a ring and pinion gear from a private party in the UK, shipped DHL for آ£60 at wt. 6.5Kg. It was suppose to take 4 days, I got it in two.
