    Hi mate,

    have a look at the last item on this page, http://www.regal-shop.co.uk/acatalog...wer_Pipes.html

    Its a blanking bit to fill the hole on the pipe, so you can remove the DV and still use your current pipe. Only £8

    Sounds interesting

    Whats up with the DV, bored of the sound, or is it causing running issues?

    Have a look on ebay, a couple of 25mm blank plugs have gone thru for £1 lately.

    Just remember that you'll need the OE DV working again if it was blanked off.
