    PMSL @ redtop! You had me all excited there for a nice XE

    Whats it like now with the Lexi on?

    Slight Hi-jack but any further forward with the rims?

    Is it fully decatted?

    I bet it's a bit quicker now.

    Yep, think it's an X18XE1

    No, Kris you can see where its been fitted to the original cat with the 2bolt flange. I guess the original cat has been chopped and a flange welded onto it and mated up to the Lexmaul.

    OR

    At least thats how it appears to me! Im probs wrong and is decatted ,,,, naughty naughty!!!

    No Geordie you correct it has got the standard cat on atm(looking for a sports one) but is a sleeve joint the manifold comes with an adaptor to change it to sleeve thats where the big exhaust clip is. X18Xe1 is what it is. Here is another video clip lol
