Went down to see Mike Stokes this weekend and booked the JTD in for a full powerflow CAT back system! Really nice customer service. Spent some time deciding what I wanted in terms of diameter and tailpipe. Shoudl have a lovely big oval with a 2.5 inch diameter bore. I could have gone to three but the pipe would have to be welded together as they can only bend up to 2.5 so I opted for this to have a cleaner look. So should be back on the 9th to have it fitted. Once the decat comes back from the ceramic coaters this week I'll be laughing!:thumbs::D

Not sure yet although it seems to have more torque and once again I'm using more of the rev range as the car revs more freely and pulls for longer. I think I may be getting some clutch slip now in the higher gears though as the car has a small vibration between 1800-2000 rpm when I know the torque is highest. Could just be fighting for traction but its in gears 4,5 and 6 so not sure. The revs aren't rising or doing anything silly but I think it may be pushing the clutch to its limits as its only a fast road clutch and the only difference was the material on the plate. The spring fingers were the smae thickness on the cover. I think the plate may just be moving slightly rather than actually slipping fully.

I am going to book a session soon and see what she now makes. Mines bigger than yours though! :D 2.5 " dia over you measily 2.25" ! LOL:p
