    God I love my car. As you know I have the ABT remap, Pipercross filter and upgraded turbo pipe. I just took the plastic baffle out from under the filter and my oh my. Every time I accelerate and change gear I get a massive whoosh as the waste gate dumps all the air. Sounds amazing, I can't stop laughing now.

    That plastic baffle is turning out to be the bane of this car -the difference with it removed is insane :)

    Do you just replace the filter with the pipercross or revo one then along with the pipe?

    I bought the Pipercross filter online and the pipe from mk performance. I wasn't paying Revo prices

    It's only about £50 difference now since MK put the price up though right?

    You got a video of how your set up sounds? Would be good to hear!

    Yeah I was lucky, mine was the first one that Kieron made. I was just trying to find an alternative. I'm going to stick my gopro on the back of the car and on the bonnet to try and catch the waste gate noise and exhaust and I will post them up.

    Do you mean wastegate or blow off valve?, as they do different things. Wastegate dumps exhaust gas to prevent overboost, bov releases intake pressure.

    Not sure which one. The intake pipe was loose, my bad, must have been when I was taking the air filter out lol. It always pays to double check all the fixing. It did sound nice tho. I did record it on my gopro. I will edit it and hopefully post it up.

    Cheers Rob. Yeah I can still hear it sometimes, just not as loudly. It's a lesson in double checking the clamps are tightened properly. Did sound nice at the the time though lol

    If you drive with the window down it's much more noticeable I found the other day. I VERY rarely put the windows down though.
    Go drive along side a tall brick wall and you'll see what I mean :)

    LOL. If you want Fast and Furious try fitting a HKS SSQV Blow off valve to the car. I've had it on a few cars in the past and it will turn heads blocks away when it goes off.
