Plans sound great! Similar to mine were.
Unlucky about the seats though... upgrade time!
Exhaust went on ok, few broken clips and a couple of stubborn bolts that had to be cut off and stuff but all ok. A bit louder than I thought haha but pops and bangs great so not complaining right now!
Lovely ! I had 400 miles of lovely-ness in mine today. My ass ached, my mind was blank....but my ears were still pricking-up with every blip of the throttle.
Enjoy yours too. Its such an epic change from stock at first. Expect your fuel bill to soar in the short-term
you will love it..
So exhaust all fitted and it's loud but I love it! Did a little video and it sounds quite tinny but so much better in person with all the pops and bangs, got a small list of jobs for the Clio now:
Front right suspension arm
Rear drivers wishbone bush
Front right shock leaking
Bar that it's all in good health, just need to get the wheels sprayed and tidy up a few small scratches.
Here's a link to the video, not great but I'll get a good incar one soon!
Sounds great m8.
An exhaust makes these cars IMO. Should have been like this from the factory. TVR's always sound great. Harley Davidsons make themselves known. So why does the Clio sound like an electric sewing machine as standard ?
Not any more for you !
Iv got a scorpion non res on mine.
It was on the car when I bought it and that's loud.
Sometimes it sounds a bit pants if you catch the rev's wrong but when you have it on full chat it sounds spot on.
So small update, along with needing a new suspension arm and some bushes the flexi joints went in the manifold. Thought it was a good time to buy a KTEC Manifold! Haha will update with pics once it's here!
So Ktec being Ktec didn't tell me they don't have any manifolds in stock and don't know how long it'll take, great.......
Have you looked at one of these? http://www.pure-motorsport.co.uk/cl...-exhaust/197-200-racing-exhaust-manifold.html
Yep phoned them but it's not for road use sadly, only track!
Why's that? As long as you have the main cat it'll be road legal!
Hardly a surprise sadly. I've dealt with them twice, they've been a disaster both times.
They said it wasn't up to the task of road exposure and would flex too much so only designed for motorsport
I might be swayed to part with my ketc as it's coming off in the next week or 2 if not it's getting vband fitted n put back on
Biting your tongue there - i get the feeling Mes.........
I'll keep my order for the Ktec manifold if they can pull their fingers out and get me one!
Can't even get a bloody receipt out of them mate. Given up. I knew they were pants anyway but I had to have the induction (I honestly think everyone should have it) and they did us a deal on the Akra. Won't use them again in a hurry!
Got a call from Ktec today who said my manifold will arrive end of next week, would have preferred this week but clear they were not going to help past that point
