omg my downpipe sounds cool

hey all after smashing my knuckles for 5 hours today i finally fitted my afterburner de cat down pipe and i cant tell you how blooming nice it sounds and goes like a different car and loads of rumble and pops ,the five hours of pulling my hair out ,throwing tools around was all worth it .i hope the whistle noise is normal and not a boost leak i have checked all joints and all seem OK
the 5 bolts that hold the down pipe on the turbo were a total nightmare but got there in the end .

I recommend the down pipe to everyone, perfect fit perfect sound, prefect performance

Well done to fitting the downpipe. i fitted mine a few months ago and i agree its not an easy job. Well worth it as you said.

Yeah dont worry that noise is normal, sounds great doesn't it.

Have you removed your resonator too.?
