    got mine last week and its now on the car :)

    Not had a chance to test the performance as yet but it does sound better even using the oem backbox!

    Have fun removing the old OEM downpipe its a pig of a job

    Defo more noise on WOT and when lifting off.

    I could of done it in 4 hours if the old OEM pipe had come out easier in the end i took the subframe off and dropped the steering rack as low as possible to remove the old DP.

    really proud of myself (i did have some help from a couple of otherguys from here) fro completing the job and kept costs to minimum :)

    I would use an OEM gasket (from a dealer) for the turbo/dp and not the one they supply... they don't last very long...

    I think now since doing it once i could do it again in 3-4hours as its only removing the old downpipe thats annoying. Am sure a mechanic on a proper lift with proper tools could do it in less but who knows either way it wont cost you as much blood, skin and bruises as it did me lol
