    New Exhaust on my Turbo H

    I went and collected a full vxr system yesterday from Orpington in Kent :O 300 mile round trip on 1 tank 31mpg with shed loads of stop start on m25 and m3.

    Also took a detour on the way home to andover in Hampshire to drop off the main cat section for a fellow member (coupe2T).

    so anyway i took the chance that the vxr back box was less silenced than my sri item, and i was correct

    Its approx 1.5 kilos lighter and is defo louder.

    Now to make it fit out came the trusty 4 inch with cutting disc. 3 cuts later it was ready to be welded up.

    All welded and sprayed with heat paint to help prevent rust, got it mounted on the car and here ya go.

    Next weeks mission. Removed centre silencer and replace with a piece of tube.





    I know it needs pulling under another 1/2 inch but i'll do that next week when i modify (read as butcher ) the vxr centre section which ironicly is the same part number as mine thats on there

    What are your thoughts?

    no extra power, just plenty of noise and popping/burbling
