    Been a while since I’ve updated this, progress has been a bit slow where I’ve been out of the UK working so much but here it is!

    Decided to go for some more power after the old turbo shagged itself!

    It’s a Garrett GTX 2867.64 turbo, much newer technology so should spoil quicker and give more power! Teamed that with an APW manifold and a new air filter & MAF set up.

    While it was all out I continued wire tucking, there are now no more un-needed wires in the engine bay and any ones left have been routed and hidden.

    Me and my good friend Joe decided to then make a new exhaust, the shotgun one was far too loud, the Kakimoto sat far too low and was too quiet for my liking. The parts were purchased.

    Decided to get a sports cat as well, this should hopefully help me pass an MOT, pretty sure for the past 2 years it has been in the country it’s had dodgy MOTs which isn’t good!

    Was a horrible day, but we needed to crack on and get it done as it is booked in for mapping on the 22nd of this month!

    Sports cat done.

    De-cat done.

    As some of you may know I like having a droooop on my exhaust, we cut the rolled tip off and tacked the 90 degree bend we had cut on.

    Lovely welding by Joe.

    New downpipe section with a flexi was made, I will heat wrap it again this weekend.

    Here’s how the droop sat… I personally love it, but I doubt anyone else will haha!

    That completed day one.

    Day 2 continued, as you can see it is all tucked up under the chassis rail.

    Just needs final welding now and heat wrap applying before mapping next week. Can’t wait to get it back now!

    Well it's been a long road getting it nice again really! Nearly there though, can't wait to drive it properly again!


    So here is the final product, to say I'm happy is an understatement. Just the right level of loud now haha! Tucks up nice and close now and gives me loads of room to go lower!

    I'm looking forward to see how the GTX and the new exhaust responds on the dyno next week!

    Not sure what power it's going to produce, only time will tell!

    So this weekend I did a few tidy up jobs, just waiting on a catch can to turn up now.

    Put heat wrap back onto my downpipe.

    Polished all the greasy finger prints off the exhaust and put some sealant on to keep it nice.

    As I have great faith in my car I fitted a fire extinguisher ahaha! After seeing a car set alight at a show this year I’ve been contemplating getting one, I don’t actually mind how it looks really haha!

    That's clean. The underside and engine bay are pretty mint looking.
