Great vids mate.

Janspeed manifold and de-cat came today. Hopefully will get it test fitted at weekend and if the fitment is ok will get it heat wrapped. Must say tho the quality seemed a lot better on the Piper and Elise parts manifold, welds aren't that great and thought the pipes would be bigger than they are but see want happens when back on rollers at Emerald.

What did you have on before John? and why are you changing it. If it increases the noise levels wont it be a problem at Bedford as I know they seem to run quiet trackdays. Around 101dbs I think it was on my to do list but the system I have was way above that. I'm having a system from the headers back so hopefully will be down to a decent noise level as I struggled at some of the sprint events I went to snet and croft were the main ones.

Just the standard ZR160 at mo. Just after few more horses really and both DVA and Emerald advised to replace the standard manifold hopefully get bit of extra mid range talk to. Will have to see about noise all tho on November trackday was a fair bit under noise at Bedford. Wont have to worry about there sound tho its becoming 5500 houses in next couple of years

Finally got the Janspeed on, not rapped it yet just wanted to check fitted which is mm perfect all tho the lambda probe is completely in a different place. Luckily since I done my own loom had enough wire to reroute it. Doesn't seem much louder with the decat thankfully and car definitely feels quicker in mid-range. Just need to increase cam timing on Verviers and get back to emerald for map tweak....
