  • Magnex at last !!

    Just got back from Egypt and fitted the magnex right away ,
    looks great , havent really noticed much extra power , sounds great
    but you have to get the revs up to really get it sounding good , easy enough to fit , also gave it a bit of a clean its been a really sunny day lots of people out today , did 100 miles this afternoon , going to check all the connections on thesystem again in morning .. here`s some pics...

      Yes fitted it myself , took around three hrs . snapped a stud in the down
      pipe ( lots of swearing ) but simply used one from the pre-cat ..

                  think its 2.5" bore , just been under thr car to check all the conections , there may have been a slight leak on the connection after the cat , nipped it up and think is fine now ,
                  Has anyone fitted a de-cat pipe? thinking of having one custom made ..

                      which one front pre cat or main cat,heard there were a few issues with removing the main cat as it can cause ecu faults and managment lights to come on.
