    Makes it a bit louder and the polishing makes it look good, works a bit like an exhaust silencer.

    Smash the baffle out of the inside of it. Not hard to do, takes a bit of time and whacking, but it just smashes up.

    Makes SURE you THOROUGHLY clean the bits out of the charge pipe afterwards.

    You also have to cut a bit of the lip off, only like 2mm, but yeh you will be surprised how hard you need to hit it. Best bet is to remove the pipe, cut the lip then have an argument with the misses then smash the baffles out lol.

    Lol at having an argument with the missus. That works for the gym as well!

    So, undo jubilee clips, take pipe off, smash out like a home made decat and we're there? And presume it's metal, so things like Autosol and Super resin will polish it up a treat?

    The silver pipe that is to the left of your engine with the "do not touch" hand sticker on it.

    edit; the vertical pipe in the picture;

    No worries dude, here it is. Sadly I haven't got a before picture - but this is the ultimate aim.

    I think mine went a little better to be honest - but possibly the placebo effect. Makes much more noise though! :)

    Yep, a normal T Sport 180/150 WILL NOT have this pipe. You have a pipe which runs across the back of the engine, then down into the pancake pipe and off from there.
