Tail pipe fell off - better performance!

The tail pipe on my 200tdi recently fell off. No difference in sound levels
but turbo sounds as if it is running up more freely and performance seems to
be improved.

Pure imagination ?

Bunged up tail pipe?

Do you mean the tail box or just the pipe after the box?

Assuming it's a 110, mine is more often off than on! I suspect the
slighty "growlier" sound is adding those extra horses ;-)

Dunno... but I improved the output from the ford Di in the minibus today by
accident...

the air intake into the filter box had a plastic trumpet thing on it, and
this was loose and rattly. Pulled it off. noted that the hole in the
middle of it is considerably smaller than the inlet tract generally...

definitely runs better without it, but with more inlet noise. Improved go
and revs build quicker and higher when revving like an MOT smoke test.

now to see if I can tame the inlet noise without strangling it again. Or
just live with it - 's not excatly a quiet motor anyway...
