    Hi all

    I have a couple of questions
    The car is fitted with a forge recirc valve makeing the flutter but Iíd farther it didnít so was thinking of swapping it out but for what??? Not keen on the really loud dump valves or can I change the springs to Quieten it down a bit

    Iíd like to ad a cat for the mot but donít no what to do can I just get a standers exhaust for a vxr/gsi or do I need something else ??i donít want to affect the engine by restricting the exhaust

    Is it actually a VXR engine? Because it should be making way more than 250 with the hybrid on it. Also I have a forge recirc on mine and it doesn’t flutter. Could be the infamous turkey noise your hearing. Usually caused by a pipe that’s come of the BCS at the back of the engine.

    Yeah as far as I no the guy I got it from sed it hadnít been mapped just tuned to be 100% and not be another gsi with the vxr in
    Paper work all backs it up itís got a big cone on with five recirc and actuator flutters when accelerators let off
