    cheers Bells. That makes sense. How did you get on with the MOT? I’ll have a look at your classifieds

    MOT was fine with the res delete fitted, as it only alters the sound of your exhaust not the emissions etc. The MOT tester didn’t even mention it :icon thumright:

    Nice! That’s all I want is to get ‘that’ sound back. Have you opened your valves permanently also?

    Nah never ran it with the valves permanently open, res delete alone was loud enough for me as they open anyway past 3k rpm I think. Although I know some others have done the mod on here.
    Here’s a link to a short sound clip with the res delete on, although mine didn’t have a GPF.

    that does sound much better. Be interesting to compare the sound with GPF and res delete. Have you got a link to your classified ad?

    I can't see how it can be bypassed mate so I think the only option is to remove the two of them completely from the system.

    It's definitely not cheap though, the pipe alone was £500 then fitting was 6 hours due to the nature of how difficult it is so that can obviously vary from garage to garage but I was £50 an hour for that.

    To add to that, as above you need to get it mapped in so I had my gearbox and engine mapped up to stage 1.5 with my existing mods so again it isn't a cheap process.

    Sounds absolutely brilliant though and pulls like mad!

    Also I don't want to **** all over Bells sale here but I had a res delete done when I first got the car and it made very little difference. Had it cost any more than the £70 I paid for it then I really wouldn't have been happy as I drove it away thinking nothing had been done to it.

    Ive just realised that the ‘bypass’ I mentioned is actually a plug and play module which I’m assuming is to avoid engine management lights coming on when the GPF is removed.
