Fabricating a STEALTHY EXHAUST System for my 650WHP SLEEPER!

Today we turn the big turbo LS6 Volvo wagon into a TRUE sleeper by fabricating a quiet exhaust system for it. The exhaust is constructed of 3.5" stainless steel pipe, a vibrant performance muffler, a borla muffler, and is 100% tig welded.

  • I wonder if there is a stealthy diy noise cancelling kit you could buy. If you are going "high tech" with the "outside" sound resembling a Volvo B engine why not see if there is an active noise canceling kit you could install as part of a stereo kit maybe to make the noise inside (at least for the driver) be the sound of silence :-) ---edit These seems to do what I what I thought of. www.halosonic.co.uk/ Can't find much of consumer products though...

  • Your mufflers are straight throught type so it will always have a rumble. You could try fabricating a better chamber type muffler

  • Does having it run "quiet" all the time really make a big difference in HP. Not SOO much. I might be wrong, but it's not a funny car with 2000 ps where it'd matter. Just needs to be tuned for a tiny bit of back pressure. Ok, being annoyingly loud is it's own endgame. but really... on THIS build, with such an Oma's car... why? Just blow the doors off of em, nice n quiet. :) Just adds to the humiliation, and no massive electronic systems needed.

  • you're gonna hear a V8 no matter what exhaust is on there. especially aftermarket. you could've gone with a new stock silverado muffler since those are quiet. i know mine is. but then you're downsizing to less than 3.5" and even in stock silverados there's a low grumble. 3.5" is gonna sound burly regardless, aftermarket is gonna sound burly regardless. on the plus side, you have the added comfort of owning a hotrod without that horrible exhaust drone that everyone's drunk uncle with a big block fails to admit is the reason they never drive it!

  • Maybe of you put a stock resonator it'll quiet it down a little more and it won't take up a lot of space since its a straight piece

  • The Volvo B21 or B23 you almost never hear in the engine bay with a closed hood. What you hear mostly is the high noice from the clutch fan on the engine LOL. So a big noicey fan that follows the RPMs could get it to sound like a Volvo engine LOL. In Sweden we call them the hay dryer fan the oem ones LMAO. You did an awesome job on the exhaust. I have heard so many exhaust on 240s that where only 2"-2 1/2" that's scrambling against the chassi. Especially when they are lowered it can be hard to get clearance over the rear axle. But most don't think that the rear axle is not in ride height on a 2 post lift. It's easier done on a 4 post lift when you still have the ride height properly at place. Either way it's impresive to fit a 3 1/2" exhaust on an old Volvo or any other car modells with small engines in them. The oem size exhaust is 1 3/4" on 240/740. So double the diameter is not easy to build that great that you did!

  • Clean setup on the exhaust man, you can prolly try adding on resonators where there's space. Cause I pretty much have a similar in concept sleeper build, a 1jz swapped Merc W124, full 3 inch turbo back exhaust system with 1 muffler (which joins to twin tips that looks stock xD) in the rear, a resonator in the middle and a resonator after the downpipe. Thing is quiet till you floor it and people around go O_O

  • Awesome build series! I'm in Australia, and I've been trying to plan an upcoming 240 build. sadly our laws are much stricter then over there, but I'm definitely looking at a ls1 swap even though I'm a ford guy. i was looking into doing a bf230 turbo engine, but for the price and work, it seems like a better option to go with the ls1 if i can do it legally. thanks heaps for the effort and information

  • Super awesome! If you have issues with drone frequencies at all you can add 1/4 wave helmholtz tubes to knock out those frequencies. All you need to do is branch off a peice of capped tubing 1/4 wavelength (of the dominant drone frequency) from your exhaust (doesn't have to be big pipe I think even 1.25 would be fine) and the reflected frequency will cancel the drone frequency.

As long as the car gets through “besiktning” (tüf) it’s legal, apparently there are some inspectors that let car through for some cash on the side... then there are many types of registrations if I understand it correctly but I guess they cost more and are more rigorous,
