    Update

    Got the exhaust on yesterday. Took a couple hours starting off myself until a mate came over to lend a hand.

    Must say the oreca is absolutely brilliant. Fitment was perfect. Made sure to use plenty of paste and doubled up on clamps because I've heard the ones that come with aren't great and they blow quite often.

    But it's so nice. Sounds 10x better, not droney. Quieter than the ktec, flatspot is gone almost completely, revs out way way smoother and it weighs a lot less. Really wish I had done this from the start it really is perfect. I'm so happy with it.

    Only one problem being the exhaust is a 197 one and I have a 200 diffuser so the tip sits too far out. Nothing major just means I need to chop some off to get the diffuser back on.

    Was nervous about the oreca having seen loads of people telling me they're really loud but the ktec was a lot louder in my opinion.

    Also peeled the plasti dip off my badges and got badge covers just to tidy it up a little 64bd79dfc9c7e6b33fe682a52f7e3fd3.jpg 32a013ed809384ef5765ea0e1574878e.jpg

    I have got one video. It's a bit windy though but you can just about make out what it sounds like, not sure the best way to get it on here though?
