Have you got decatted downpipes?

If not that will release some noise and a few extra ponies with a remap.

No mate i dont so il be getting those ordered...cheers
That will make a big difference.

Milltek systems do tend to be more subtle in note than most.

I recently got downpipes, and altho they do make the noise so much better, especially after 3k revs! :D, and the car breathes much better, making it feel a bit more lively..... there are a few side effects so you know, just sharing the experiences

- sometimes you get a whiff of fumes in the cabin, say when coming upto traffic lights and more so if the windows are open, not always but sometimes.. im used to it now tho
- a lot more soot on the back bumper
- more drone inside the cabin, i'd say about 1/3 louder @ 70mph

You can swap the non res part for the res part and vice versa without a remap no problem :thumbsup:

Have you ordered the downpipes? I would recommend the cast versions (either Milltek or GTC).

Now ordering them lol
some Russ Fellow's downpipes recently acquired :D Custom made, not mass produced. Another option for you.

Downpipes and the res pipe might suit if you dont want it to be loud all the time. Not too unruly plodding around under 3500k, but put you foot down and it'll come alive all the way to the limiter :)
