Re: JTD Exhaust choices and benefits?
thanks for the recomendation,who or what is "cph"?
i don't mind spending the money on induction, but i am trying not to get into the realms of gearbox breaking torque!
in fact (Attention Gordy!) the remap alone is a stunning tune for the money, and massively improved a car that was already marvellous, but....
as i started the thread, i'm a petrolhead, and used to doing such things, as much for personalisation as outroght power increases, its just nice to be a little different aswell as knowing the guy next to you at the lights is going to get the shock of his life if it tries it on!
I was under the car the other day with my exhaust guy initially because i need a rear silnecer hanger seeing to. Whilst under there i noticed how simple the exhaust on these oil cooker 's is, mine has just the cylindrical catalyst up front, tubed back to just a rear silencer box, thats it.
so a thorough inspection of what was good and not so, i thought sod it, i'll rip the boxes out the thing so long as it doesn't end up too loud and the miss's complain!
my fears on diesels becoming too noisy with little silencing are now quashed, all good there then, and i was only really in the area of a better air flow in just to make a little more of free'ing up the catalyst anyway.
i'm happy as pig in muck truth be known with outright power, and don't drive this car very hard anyway as it is the daily runabout and i have other toys to abuse when i'm feeling leary, but i do want to personalise it a little, hear it growl a bit to match the already infectious induction noise, and just a tad more power would be greatly appreciated but not essential.
more importantly, with my comparitively miniscule experience of tuning or modding diesels, i wanted to make sure i wasn't going to lose any power or torque for the sake of an exhaust growl, but that fear is well and truly quashed too now thanks lads!
