New Exhaust Fitted

Everything was pretty easy, exhaust was a perfect fit, only took 75 mins to complete.
*Tip* A little washing up liquid makes fitting the rubber hangers a breeze. You know how a little lubrication helps at times :wink:
The exhaust note is wonderful at full throttle and not intrusive at all when just bumbling along. Got a nice deep thrum at tickover. Seems to spool just a little quicker without the cat too, very pleased.
Here's a few pics.

Cool.

NOw that looks 8) I love HKS exhausts and you can see the rear baffle design is a lot smaller on the HKS - they do give out a lovely note don't they....

Nice mr cool 8)

noticed you have a cat in the centre section, mine only had the resonator box!

Does yours have two cats at the front/ ie one in down pipe from turbo and one it next short section, or was that the second one removed?
If so could just be the difference between the jdm and uk models

Thanks guys,
Nelson, yes it has a really nice sound about it 8)
Mr Freeze, I have great difficulties taking pictures let alone sound recordings, but if I can get a competent person to do it, no probs.
Buzz, the honest answer is 'I don't know'. ops: having said that, I have not noticed any further cats in the system other than the one you see that I have removed. As you may know the emission laws are a little more relaxed in Japan than the UK.
BTW, I thought the system was a bit of a bargain at £290. :?: :?: :?:
What do you guys think :?:

Cool.
