    Vibratechnic road mounts and both powerflex dog bone bushes (yellow main one)

    Hopefully should be enough to keep it fairly sturdy as theres not much clearance from inlet mani to the bonnet.....will soon know if its moving to much when a little bonnet bulge starts to form lol

    I wish you the best of luck with it

    I just wish i could of take more out of the exhaust ports on your head, I measured mine when i finished it and they were over 5mm bigger than yours but you do have the benefit of the massive down pipe as i will find it hard to get a 3 inch down pipe down the back of the bulk head with my manifold set up

    i still have the 150bhp NOS kit i still plan to fit... 750 bhp:eyebrows:

    I was asked not to

    I did them to the same size as the TSR manifold. I opened them as much as i could.

    The CTS manifold ports are just massive, even bigger with mine now.

    Yeah iirc the id of the tsr runners were 38 or 40mm and do remember that it seemed like a sensible option to not go bigger than the mani id

    NOS will be mental on top of your spec....thats one thing I'm never "allowed" to do as she caught me enquiring on a kit a while back lol

    Stupid thing is I can happily aim for another 150bhp with a bigger turbo but shes completely against the gas.....think its the fast and furious impression that everyone gets of it lol

    It'll give you a manifold failure and then your passenger floor pan will fall out! We've all seen the film!

    Yeah, ideally you want a smaller diameter head port size than manifold runner size to prevent reversion from memory. Not sure how much that applies to a charged engine but reading up on N/A, it certainly applies there.

    Wow, level of sped tail on that is fantastic!! Out of interest, how much would a system like that cost for an a3? Just not as many silencers :p

    I might have popped into Badger 5 this afternoon to say hello, and I have to say, this was looking absolutely fantastic. I think you're going to be VERY happy with the system when it's finished stacey, then of course there's the mapping still to come :)

    Well im glad majority has said oval as thats what I went with after bill threw a spanner in the works and suggested the 4" as that was my second choice with a rolled tip of some form

    Only concern is oval may be a bit big but will have to wait and see as im sure will look lovely :)
