    Sorry to hear about the flu, that's a crap thing to have any time but especially in summer!

    So, I'm confused! KTec manifold has no cat anyway. Does that mean you have the cat back Akra as obviously the full one doesn't have a cat anyway...

    And my wifes got it to, were falling apart very slowly.

    Ok so started with full akra evo, then got told original manifolds on its way out - so went with K tec manifold and added a k tec sports cat so its got a cat in place ready for mot time.

    You put a cat in the Akrapovic? Brave move. Obviously that's an option but I honestly don't think I'm brave enough! :smiley:

    @///M the original manifold *was* on backorder with no date the last time I enquired, so I bought one with fucked flexis so I can get them repaired.

    I currently have the full akra evo with a toyosport manifold, and it's quite loud. Lol! But it's a good loud if that makes sense? I'll be knocking the shit out of it at fcs on Saturday, so you'll be able to hear it at full chat.

    Balls. Knew that was gonna happen! We're getting close to MOT time too! Typical.

    So you're catless right now too? How's your flatspot?

    Looking forward to Saturday! Getting our tickets today.

    Honestly mate, I'd just get one of the refurbished ones that's linked a few posts back.

    Yeah catless throughout. Flatspot I'll report on when I've driven it on Saturday! Flol! It's got an rs tuner map on it though, so it was never horrendous to start off with.

    Yeah should be a good day. I'm just deciding where to put the GoPro....

    this. @Ice_ken (running a full akra set up as well) had one on backorder and in the end had his flexis replaced, because mani was still on BO after three weeks.

    Starting to think that might be our only option. Which is a bit of a worry to be honest!

    As for the GoPro, I always like the through the seats view but your highlight / shadow balance will probably need adjusting!

    Hopefully we'll get a chance to say hello on Saturday mate.

    Well I certainly wouldn't worry about doing that mate personally.

    I'm going to look at putting it on the b pillar inside the car next to me, but I'll have to look and see how much of me it gets in the shot!

    I'll be on the cs.net stand mate, and I think the only AG on there, so pop over and we can have a chat. Looking at where we are and where you'll be parked up, we are diagonally opposite one another! Lol!

    Yeah says chance of rain. I'm not worried! Make it easier to drift down craners and on the exit of the old hairpin!

    No mate. Still mulling it over. I don't want to admit Yianni is right but I think I'm going to have to at some point :smiley:

    Good news is the car is back home and looking awesome and driving even better.
