Do it for the greater good! SA needs more R&D knowledge of GQV...and apparently Guili isn't gonna be pushing GQV modding anymore...so it's up to you!...Then we can reap the benefits...;)

I consulted my magic 8 ball and it said 'what are you waiting for?'

You know you want to and you know you can trust Jean... :thumbs:

Divide the cost of dp and zorst by number of days to find out what the proposed rental per day is. If the figure is more than the explicit and implicit costs (which include the cost of new travel arrangements, petrol there and back, etc) inflated by some sort of risk coefficient, then I would say go for it!
If not, I say pork it and still go for it!

Im going to be the bad guy again, have u seen how guys disassemble and re-assemble cars, no need to tell u about it, u had first hand experience with the GT, they are going to take the downpipe and exhaust on and off your car repeatedly between dyno sesions, so prepare for some broken or lost bits, as well as the voiding of your warantee once the dealer sees u have been fiddling, not worth it on a car thats also your daily, if its a toy, go for it.
All the guys that do R&D always do it on cars they can live without if need be or if it sits broken for a while.

Dp all the way to the rear is easy to remove without damaging the rest of the car.
