Bit of work this morning - changed out the engine mounts and fitted the tips back on, quick test drive, all seems good:







Did you clean the engine bay or did it come 'clean', taking inspiration from this thread ive decided to do mine but just wondered if you covered the electronics or not bother?

On my old Honda i did but then some people i know didnt. Im just looking to do the painted parts with the degreaser and then hand clean the rubber/plastic

Thanks

Worth the wait methinks.....cant wait to hear what she sounds like....

The engine bay came pretty clean, but i did go over it, as it got pretty dusting when blast cleaning the underneath. As you say, was just careful where I pointed teh pressure washer.

Lovely Mark, incredibly clean! You'll be scared to drive it surely Wink
Did you go for Inconel or SS? I have recently fitted an Inconel system so I can relay how I found this system: I am totally amazed by how cleverly developed it is. At idle it is much quieter than a PSE and this theme carries through to anything <50% throttle. Once you start giving it the beans though it screams. It really is a fantastic system. I have an Akrapovic full system on my 997RS and that is just lairy 100% of the time. Felix has somehow found a way to give you the best of both worlds. I can't recommend these systems highly enough Smile You will have a permanent Very Happy on your face. Well done Thumb

Thanks, I am collecting it this morning....... Very Happy Thumb

I went SS as, the iconel was silly money, although very cool.

I am hoping its not too silly noise wise, but not too bothered as will likely just do selected foreign track days in it. Have a noisy day booked at Donnington with the POCGB, also, Felix is making me some track turn down tips, which I am told by Nick at uber 9's help a bit as well......

ken has dyno'd it and its around 23 BHP up on standard with further adjustment and possible gains to come as the ECU adjusts to the new set up, which is cool.
Just heard from Gert as well, my E88's have arrived...it's like Christmas!!!

I think itll be noisier inside the car more than outside as youve kept the rear oem side boxes (unless these are new and the insides are gutted?).

My prediction is that itll be 103dB @ track testing conditions

Having played the aftermarket exhaust game and having a Kline system on my car I'd say that will be well over 105 at 3/4 revs.

Are they 200 or 100 cell cats? My Kline system with 2 extra silencers and 100 cats pulled 105 dbs at 3/4 rpm without cats it makes about 112dbs.

you heard mine at Rockingham (didnt you?), that was 105db (from memory) at 3/4.

That was straight pipe out of oem cats and headers.

When i met Stuart, his was louder in car with the non-oem cats he has but had some silencers than mine but mine was louder outside.

Either way im still sticking with 103db @ 3/4

Hi fellas, OK, the system is a complete system, manifolds, silencers the lot, so no OEM parts used at all. The cats are 200 cell.

I have to say, the exhaust is quite civilised, at the sensible end of the rev range, its got a nicer, deeper note than standard, but it does really pick up and scream when you get over 5 or 6 thou.

I am having my first proper drive in it tomorrow ( will be up at 5.30 to make the most of the empty roads) So will report back after.

Car looks great Mark.

Have you tried the E88s yet? What centre did you go for and can you feel much of a difference?

Quite tempted by some lighter wheels.

Been really busy at work and away with the family over Easter, so no chance to sort the wheels out before now. Finally got them fitted this weekend, but no proper drive yet..... Hopefully next weekend if the weather is good.

Will post up some pictures in a few days. I went no centres, kinda like the look, the 9 inch fronts just rub the liners on full lock when maneuvering slowly, but a quick test drive gave no rubbing in normal driving, so hopefully no problem there. The size of wheels and tyres was recommended by some knowledgeable people, so it should be fine.

So finally had some garage time and some driving time, pretty pleased with the results...

Here is a close up of the front wheel, showing the studs I have got instead of the standard bolts, for a bit of extra race cred...



And here is close up of the car on Sunday on a blast out to the Cotswolds with YASc4s to meet Gooner ( MK2 Clubsport) from these boards and enjoy the sun and roads.



All the cars in a row:
