Re: Which exhaust

Ecosse motorsport exhaust . Ian is a very pleasant guy to deal with . The system is something of beauty and really should go on the top side of car :bigrin: . And when it came to fitting a complete pleasure with a lot of adjustability built in to the design .... Yep big thumbs up

1st run of complete car


very pleased at how it feels , even though there are rose links in the suspension and no interior to talk of it still feels reasonably civilised inside , oh and the Elite T5 is working a treat , changes sweetly and no noises and i have absolutely no sound deadening,
