    i saw Petes (warley) TIP on his APY engine when he came up on sunday.....the actual design is totally different to the BAM one, for a start it has a weird series of bends and what seems to be a longer run to the turbo....

    Just heard that you have to move the N75 valve and the oil breather pipe to put one on ours. Not sure what that consists of. Have to have a look under the bonnet.

    i think that might be on the non esp one but not sure, from looking at my tip and the pictures of the silicone tips for the bam they look the same, i wouldnt have thought it would be to much hassel to move some pipe work if need be though
