    Na, I actually didn't end up getting myself the OA deadening. Ran low on cash at the wrong time. This was just a few bits of (I think) Jaycar crap that had been lying around for almost 2 years.
    Had the front door trims off fixing a couple rattles, so stuck a bit on there and a little in a few rattly spots in the boot.

    It boosted the in-car volume nicely, and cut down the road noise a little. Sounds a bit more punchy too, but I haven't had it cranked that much yet. Hopefully I'll be able to get my hands on some of that OA stuff still

    Had the extractor dump pipes and factory cat remopved, now has 2.5" dumps into 1 x 3" high flow cat, then reduced down to a single 2.5" system with walker turbo muffler and resonator.

    meanest, wickedest, idle you have ever heard. sounds like a bulldog growling while tearing lumop of dead flesh off a half ton wild boar.
