BTB January 2011 Newsletter
BTB Spiral Flow Pattern Exhaust
BTB were delighted with the response to their first appearance at the Performance Motorsport World Expo in Cologne. One of the exhibits on display was a spiral shaped collector, which was made to demonstrate not only the company’s exhaust fabrication skills, but also to try and attract a development partner for the new design. The 4 into 1 collector features merged pipes which when linked with equal length primaries in the correct firing sequence should promote a spiral flow pattern down the exhaust system, which could improve the flow of the exhaust system. It is also thought that the spiral efflux could be beneficial when combined with aerodynamic features such as blown diffusers.
BTB provide exhausts for £22.7m worth of cars in 6 weeks...
With the classic car market booming it is no wonder that the value of the cars worked on by BTB should have increased. During the last 6 weeks of 2010 the value of cars that BTB have made new exhaust parts for, totalled a staggering £22.7million! Fortunately for BTB’s insurers most of these cars have been safely tucked up with their owners or in the care of their chosen preparation company. It is no wonder that with historic racing cars still being used competitively, their value is judged as much by their current performance as their historical pedigree. Therefore owners are keen to ensure that everything affecting their cars performance is in optimum condition.
