Looks good, love the red leather! but looks like it needs some leather polish.

Went to the local exhaust shop today to get a quote on welding up my cats when I put my exhaust on. Almost fainted when he said 4hrs at 90/hr lol I mean shit straight pipe between extractor and cat x2 ain't gonna take me 4 hours to do so I wonder why it would take a exhaust shop that long! Haha
fit the cat back tonight. its droney at 1500rpm but other then that sounds good! hopefully the drone gets a little less once there is a few k's on it!
got these in the mail today
them pipes look sic instrested to see wat power come out of this wen more boost is put into it

the last couple of days i've been playing with tuner pro 5 rt in the calais! finally figured out why my quarter times are shit! the slip between 1-2 at WOT is a good second and between 2-3 is 1.8-2secs! once i can get a tune to get the shift times down i should be sweet! should easily be able to get them under a second each!
drags tonight got me a 14.7 @ 91.5mph with a full tank of fuel and subs. so .6 faster then last time with 100kg more weight.
nice mate, got them headers and cats fitted yet?
nah not yet, i havent had the time to fit them. and i dont have the money atm to pay to have them fitted. hopefully it makes as much difference as a catback alone did.
ill eventually buy a w2a or a2a cooler so a tune is gonna wait for a while...and at the rate of cash flow to bill demand its gonna be a long while! lol
