Installing a FOX sports exhaust – Peugeot RCZ

The first really significant modification to my RCZ

Enough of the routine maintenance, let’s get some excitement into this ride. The K&N air filter was a good start, but why not upgrade the RCZ esthetically while also improving the sound note?! I decided to install a FOX dual exhaust for three reasons: It looks great – chrome, classy and bigger than the stock exhaust – hopefully sounds great and it’s road legal in Switzerland. Furthermore, I went all in and also acquired a matching sporty rear diffusor that allows the new right side exhaust to come out.

NOTICE: The installation is quite straightforward. As always, take some time to prepare yourself and don’t rush the whole disassembling an reassembling. The kit was complete. You don’t need to cut or weld anything to the chassis. However, you need to cut the stock exhaust pipe at the exact spot, in order for the new pipe to fit. More tips are given at the end of part 2.

Here’s how it’s done! 🙂

Part 1 – Removing the original exhaust and prefitting the FOX exhaust

Part 2 – Final assembly, sound check and feedback

Resetting the service warning message – Peugeot RCZ

Keep your computer up to date!

So you’re one of those people who service and tune up your car yourself, right? But what about all the electronic little messages that come up periodically and want to remind you to look after your car? Of course, YOU wouldn’t need that because YOU keep track of your car’s maintenance history, right? Well guess what, you still need to tell you car when you changed the oil. My RCZ‘s onboard computer wants me to service my car every 30’000 km. It shows so buy putting up a little wrench next to the odometer, as well as in the central display between the rpm gauge and the speedometer.

Lucky you, you drive a Peugeot and hence don’t need any diagnostic computer to reset the service warning message!

Here’s how to do it! 🙂
