Some bits arrived today.

3" Down pipe
3" front pipe
3" centre resonator delete pipe

Will be connecting to standard back box and then weld in (not bought yet) valve "Y" piece for screamer pipe. Hopefully with the standard back box in will be ok and no drone but when valves are open look out lol

back still knackered so all I can do is look at it :thumbsdown:

Tried LC at 120 miles, pretty cool aint it lol.

Coming from all my fancy cars I love this thing (thought I would miss the bigger / perceived faster cars I have owned). Apart from the road noise I really cant fault it. Its the right size for our roads, handles magic and is pretty fast plus 35mpg is easy, wife can get over 40mpg that's awesome for this quick wee car. I have a box on mine now so around 350-360bhp the wee thing bloody flies cant wait to map it and fire on the exhaust for around 390-400bhp should be a blast.

What Pirellis do you have? any better re noise?? I am either going the latest Pirelli (got a very good write up) or wait until the MPS4 is released next year

i have the P-Zeros, there is still a fair bit of road noise to be fair. you hit the nail on the head with your thoughts above, it's spot on really for the UK Roads. wow must feel awesome around the 400 mark.

Ok so sounds like I will be trying the MPS4 when they come out and a bit of sound proofing. I was in the back of the car the other night and I would say 80% of noise is from the rear so not a difficult fix.
