How well does the box work at keeping noise down as its sealed (not re-packable) and did you buy or make the tailpipe yourself. Any pics of how you mounted it.Aidan

I think the box is ok little vid of it running https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBIe8yulbSk. I bought the tail pipe as a straight peace then welded a bend to the end of it then ground the weld down and polished it up. the rear mount I welded a tab on underneath the exhaust to avoid sharp edges and another coming out from under the car with a rubber mount.

well little up date ticked a few more thing of on my to do list and finished filling in my IVA application form just got a few thing I would to do before I post it of. The thing I want to do before posting is try and get my engine light to go out so I need to find out the codes from the ECU sort them out then I will be happy to post it of.

Got to keep pushing now I'm on the last hurdle.

good to hear it, You can put an available from date on the forms this then gives you a deadline to aim at
It really is a great incentive spring on the way

Well spend a few hours in the garage over the weekend and got a few little jobs done and finished. I made a list of some parts needed to finish of a few thing and got them ordered up this morning. The mane thing is the
"to do list" is getting shorter. The IVA forms are all filled in and in an envelope ready to go I just cant bring myself to putting it in the post yet but in reality I should get the ball rolling.
