Re: OMP Group N competion exhaust system
Well i have fitted the exhaust, taken the 32mm venturies out the carbs and replaced them with 34mm ones, removed the airbox and fitted velocity stacks to the carbs. The induction noise is absolutely amazing, it sounds awsome!! I have to say that the exhuast is quieter than i expected, it went through the MOT no questions asked, in fact i would like it to be a bit louder to be honest as you almost struggle to hear it. The car really flies now, where it used to tail off after 5500rpm it now pulls strong all the way to 6500rpm. I will be getting it set up on a rolling road, but i am estimating around 135 hp at the moment, i outran a 1.8 16v Vectra up a stretch of dual carriageway, and it seems to be on par with a mkIII Golf GTi-although he was behind me and couldnt get past so i didnt see if it was an 8 or 16v. Lowering springs have now been ordered and will be fitted very soon along with some 15" alloys.
