    Today's mods

    Pre cat and 200 Cell Sports cat (both from Courtenay) fitted today. The car seems much more snappy. Shame the roads are wet and she is spinning like crazy

    Going on a long drive tomorrow so can't wait to complete the standard 50 miles required bofore the ECU re-tunes itself.

    Anyone got any figures before and after? She seems much more powerful but its probably just me

    Precat is a good mod, I got 1 from LMF and the car feels much livlier after 4000rpm.

    Sorry to sound THICK but with the above mods will the car still pass a MOT?

    Well after a good run today (100+ miles) the car is much improved. Lovely exhaust note after 2.5k revs. She pulls much harder and seems more willing than ever to accelerate.

    Took the car a while to get used to the changes and in fact was allowing me to do wheel spins without the TC cutting in.

    My wife is not too impressed as she thinks the car makes her feel even more sick than before...

    Defo loving the pull and noise. Proper pleased

    Can't wait for next mod, but that will have to wait till March (CS1 or CS2)

    Still MOT legal. If you get a 100 cell sports cat then you will have some problems...

    So go ahead, get modding
