    Talking Update: My recent mods...

    Well I have just managed to pull the fotos off my phone, so I thought I may aswell put some updated piccys up.

    After waiting 6 weeks my little package arrived from Courtenay - excellent service as usual lads. ... I have not fitted the cat yet.



    BEFORE...



    AFTER:



    I am usually sceptical about things like this, but I can really feel the difference in pickup. I even switched back to the old setup for a day last week and the difference is very noticable. Just need to check the bigger tophat will not stop a strut brace.

    Just incase you didn't notice, I have also painted the rocker...



    I also finally got round to getting a new exhaust. The jap tip - yuk came off months ago and I had been running without a back box ... major popping and noisage . Anyhow, A trip to AAS was in order, top guys and excellent service...





    Unfortunately the rocker cover has begun to bubble, due the the paint being cr@p and a major ball ache to work with. But it still gives the same effect.

    Thanks for tuning in.

    Cheers bud. Aye it does still seem to be getting a bit louder, which is always good. Using V power has helped bring the popping back.
