One of the pipes is perforated to reduce noise levels whilst the Exhaust valves are closed - otherwise the Valved system would be redundant and essentially the car would be straight piped
There are three pipes in the OEM for emission and sound reduction, We are building and selling these...
No - I'm using a TTV4 Turbo with Scorpion Decat, APR LPFP, Autotech HPFP, Forge intake and front mount intercooler with Forge Boost pipes (turbo - intercooler - inlet) RS3 coil packs with NGK 9's plugs
So, We've gutted out and modded the Stock Catback exhaust to net us some extra horses as the stock one held us back on the dyno. MUCH improved sound as well as power!
Allowed us to go from 480BHP to a mega 530BHP 470lbsft
You really don't need to spend £1500+ on an exhaust system...
Since fitting a Technics V4 turbo and having power drop issues straight off coming away from the rollers (car made 430whp) I've obviously been trying to nail down the issue.. Firstly replacing the APR HPFP with AutoTech internals, which seemed to improve the power delivery.. but still...
I've started building and selling LPFP upgraded baskets - a customer wanted a video of how they are installed, wasn't ideal filming in the dark but I wanted to send the pump off to him the next morning
Anyways, may be of interest to some of you!
I just may do a full video on the device since we are in lockdown - I bought this from Amazon for £119
I am not entirely sure actually if this can reset the magride! I'll check that out - although I don't have magride
Yes stock internals, bit of a luck of the draw really - lots of people are sitting on 550bhp for over 2yrs now with no problems reported, some are even pushing 600bhp! But, there are reports of failures, mainly rods bending.. but you have to wonder what abuse they've had, biggest killer is heat...
