    no loss of power. And cant get any footage. Engine ticks over fine and when its stood and blip it it sounds fine. Just when i open it up down road. Think summits blown in system.

    If you think the exhaust is blowing hold a rag over the tail pipe and listen for leaks?
    Hard to tell whats up without seeing or hearing it.

    unplug your MAF

    I would put money on it being knackered
    exact symptoms I had, could drive miss daisy around but as soon as I had to accelerate or put engine under load it crapped out, misfired, lost power, sounded terrible etc etc

    Does it accellerate normally and just sound crap? Or does it missfire/jerk/etc when you try to accellerate?

    then it doesnt sound like the MAF if you still have power

    sounds like you have a exhaust joint opening up under load

    when you say "sounds crap" can you be more specific
    noisy
    blowing exhaust
    knocking, crunching, banging?

    The noise only appears when under load. Could be join opening up. Its not knocking crunching or banging. Hard to describe the noise

    It sounds similar to what I'm experiencing at the moment with mine, apart from mine sounds awful when first starting up too, the engine is running sweet so I had mine at a custom exhaust garage in my town yesterday and up on the ramps, turns out I have a rusted hole at the rear, and the cat has gone at the front, its the cat that makes the worst noise though under load, my fuel is terrible too, and apparently the fuel consumption is crap when the exhaust is shot, especially if the cat has had it too.

    Thts what i need to do is take it in to get ot checked out. The noise is coming from front had a quick check yesterday and the cat was rusted to hell but rest of system seemed fairly new. So probs have to fork out a small fortune for a cat.

    It very much could be the cat on yours, the guy who inspected mine knocked it a bit and it rattled like hell, he said it was totally shot, I have decided to completely de cat mine, I have booked it in for a full system.
