Was a 'freeby' from a guy clearing His garage :thumbs:

No sound clip, what did you want, a recording from zorst end?

Have only been forra quick spin (in rush hour:lol: ), so will report back power / noise wise wise

Seems to rev more freely & already having a CDA fitted I am already quite noisy, so hard to tell from within the car

I need some-one to drive by me in my car, but am the only license holder in the house :p

Are the holes the bolts go through, threaded or plain holes?

Was going to hacksaw through the head as it looks like it will round off it is so rusty.

Plain holes - basically the 'studs' in the old cat are replaced with bolts to fix the new one (should have fitted stainless ones, but used what I had 'in stock') - hence me tackling the nuts in the way I did to save the studs :D

Fanks mate :D - yup easy enough to put the old one back once a year assuming the studs are OK - I guess would need doing earlyish to clear out the old cat or find a 'dodgy' MOT tester :lol:


BTW - deffo some more 'oomph' now :thumbs: - found out my brakes need bleeding on my second run tonight :lol:

Lucky yeah :) - wasn't planning to fit one of these, but you gotta take lifes 'ops' eh :D

Confession - I know nothing about 147's or twinnies really - but looks like it 'does what is says on the tin' :thumbs:
Only difference I can see is that it has 'twin' hangers, so you would prolly need another exhaust suspension rubber :)


BTW is yer Mum still outside with the hosepipe while you are sourcing de-cats? :cheese:
