Prodrive Zorst

Off to the garage in the morning, might get some prices for fitting the new zorst. I'm thinking either:

Prodrive (would the Warranty still cover this) or
Magnex

Any views on the prodrive version & how does it compare to the Magnex?

Prodrive for the Classic is a quality piece of kit but I found that it did make a very unusla noise when giving it some It kinda sounded like a jet engine rather than the usual Scooby raspy howl you generally get. Magnex sounds the Dogs and is very well made - I have also heard good things about the NEW Scoobysport VBack Box too

I wanted a Magnex, but the cars still under Warranty m8, I've not got the know how to take it on & off :cry: I want a dump valve as well, but looks like its gotta wait :cry:

Ps Nelson, the problem with the Check Engine light was the O2 sensor, its being changed on Warranty this week

Oops forgot about the warranty - hmmm well Prodrive would be your best bet mate

As for the Dumper - well 10 minutes is all it would take to switch from recirc (oem) to VTA. When she goes in for service you just swtich it back - they will never know

Good news about your check engine light problem - Job Done by the sounds of things

Well if you don't want it loud mate then I suggest either the Baileys or the Forge would be a good option for you

Did say they probably wouldn't mind, but I have to take it to a different garage for the first service, as I get bits for free on this one, maybe have a word with them for after this

Forgot to say. The WRSport oval backbox is a rebadged Magnex....... Whereas the Back Box you get with PPP is differant and not sure who makes that for Prodrive.

Not sure you can get a Prodrive backbox by itself. I think it only comes as part of the PPP pack.
