So I've heard alot regarding exhausts like getting a quicksilver exhaust system for $1300 plus install. Sounds deeper and louder. I'm looking to do similar without spending that much. Also don't want check engine light to go on. Any suggestions?

Check engine light shouldn't come on with an exhaust change as long as you don't pull the Cat or any wires that connect to the exhaust. You pretty much could have any local muffler shop to replaced everything from the cat back with new piping and mufflers they carry (such as Borla or Flowmaster) and you could see what you get. That will be potentially cheaper than the quicksilver and more than likely deeper sounding than stock but a bit of a crap shoot on the sound. Or you can buys a quicksilver or some other axle back system and bolt it on.

I have the Quicksilver installed. As said above, you won't get a check engine light. This exhaust is made for these cars so the sound you get is a given. If you go sticking just anything on there, there is no telling what you'll get out of it. It's probably more predictable just to get the Quicksilver. One a 1-10 on difficulty, this is about a 2: you don't even need to put the thing on ramps. I would rate it a 1 but the rubber muffler hanger things are kind of a pain to get off unless you go down and get the special tool. I recommend Quicksilver enthusiastically.

Awesome. Thank you. I wonder if changing it or adding a quicksilver would void the warranty from Jag?

No, not to worry about that. Putting mods on any car doesn't affect overall warranty. If something does go wrong that may lead to a connection to a mod, the manufacturer would have to prove it. This exhaust is such a minimal part, it won't have any affect on the whole vehicle. In fact I don't think Quicksilver even promises any changes in power. The cat's would need to be swapped for that to happen as they are the limiting factor.

Drewsky208...what do you think about the Quicksilver exhaust? How much louder is it than normal? I've not heard of that yet...love my F Pace P400 but I do wish it would talk a bit more (but don't want loud)... sorry if you've posted about this somewhere else?

I loooove the Quicksilver! It makes that supercharged V6 really make its presence known when I push the go-fast pedal. It is loudER, but it isn't obnoxious-loud. The sound is throaty, muscular and refined and at higher rpms, really has that Jaguar "growl" one would expect. When not mashing on it, it's just a rumble and essentially gets out of the way. I definitely recommend it.

I went with the velocity ap touring. Definitely happy with the sound, and was exactly what I was looking for. Quicksilver sounds great too. Don’t think you could go wrong with either product.

Oh, I forgot to mention I contacted Jaguar before installing just to confirm that it wouldn’t impact the warranty at all. Obviously any new parts aren’t covered.

What about exhaust drone on any of these ?

Any suggestions regarding a flowmaster muffler? Which one?Forget quicksilver. 5 weeks to make and then shipping. Plus when all said and done it's around $2000 after install, tax, delivery etc..

Echmann,

Best approach would be tell your exhaust guy (who is going to do the work) the sound you are looking for, and let him recommend a set of mufflers that hopefully will work. I don't know if anyone here put a flowmax on their F-Pace v6 yet.

slight drone on mine….but if you are going with a louder exhaust it’s going to happen. Nothing that bothers me at all and the vp touring is supposed to have least amount of drone.
Thanks. I would figure there will be some.

Hey guys!

I'd like to install Quicksilver system on my V6 SC (or any other good exhaust system that will improve the stock one).
The only thing I'm worried about is that the louder sound may be too tired / hurt your ears on long runs. Or during common city runs.
When I don't want to be super sporty but I want to just perform a calm ride.

Any of you with the improved exhausts experience such a problem?

I don't know, but I ordered it 3 weeks ago. Hopefully with shipping delays it comes. Got it from vivid racing. Have to pay$175 shipping and about $100 dock fee when it arrives. I've seen videos on you tube. Doesn't seem overly loud unless you nail it.

It is louder. I'm not going to say it isn't. That is why you fit the new system though. It isn't a droning tiring thing; it's just "present" I've taken it on roadtrips all over my state, longest being a 4 hour drive and I have zero issues with the exhaust sound. Unless the engine is pulling (like going uphill, or if you gun it to pass) it largely quiets down and gets out of the way. I have not had to change the radio volume level after the change, and carrying on a conversation is no different before/after.

And edit: I have the V6 SC engine too. It mates very VERY well with the Quicksilver system.

Thanks for your feedback.!

Yes, I understand that it may and will be louder on higher RPM. I'm just curious if it's much louder / uncomfortable on daily driving with RPM below 3K.
