Hi mate to do the pipes you can do the same sort of thing as the solenoid. Basically the pipes you need are the ones that are a T shape connected to both ends of the actuator. in these pipes there will be a brass restrictor and crap can get in their and block the brass restrictor. You will basically need to remove the pipes (make a note of how they came off) and squirt brake cleaner or whatever through them. This should do the trick....

Sounds good mate - yep the pipes have metal clips on them - best tackled with a pair of thin nosed Pliers.

Glad to hear you are sorting the Scoob 8)

Bad news about the pipeowkr - but at least you have found a problem. Well with PPP you can go for any exhaust really. I personally tried decatting it too (removed the down pipe cat) but had problems Others however had done the same and they run fine.

You could change the centre pipe out for a ninja resonated centre section and a performance back box would certainly give you a bit of extra performance but more importantly a louder Scoob
