Default Racing Legend John Bowe reviews the VAREX Smart Box



The Australian motorsports legend John Bowe was given an opportunity to test and review the VAREX Smart Box Bluetooth exhaust controller. He came away highly impressed with the features and functionality. “This (the VAREX Smart Box), is probably the most sophisticated and revolutionary exhaust product I’ve ever seen in my life,” John commented. He reckons that anyone who wants to take full control of their performance exhaust should get the VAREX Smart Box and mufflers.

For more information on the VAREX Smart Box, visit www.xforce.com.au/varex-smart-box

John Bowe is a living legend in the Australian motorsport world. With a motorsport career spanning 40 years, he has won the Touring Cars Masters twice and the Australian Touring Car Championship, along with multiple wins at Bathurst in V8 Supercars, Bathurst 12 Hours GT3 International Racing and other categories. He is the only driver to hold six Australian Championships in four racing categories, a feat unlikely to be equalled.

We highly recommend against use while driving and encourage people to make setting changes when parked and engine off, or have a passenger do it for them. There is always the option still for the VAREX remote key fob that works in conjunction with the Smart Box.

Has XForce looked at a Non-OBD mode that could take a signal from the tacho and change actuation based on RPM? The system could do with automation for older vehicles without the need for operator intervention.

Unfortunately we have not made something to work with non-OBDii vehicles. These will still use the older style key fob.

When closed the muffler acts in a very similar way to factory standard so exhaust gases are slowed greatly compared to wide open.
