    Trying a slightly different solution with the bypass pipes. Was not fully confident with the fitment from the off the shelve ones I purchased, so i'm in the process of buying the bits up to make some myself hopefully with a decent fit.

    When I finished off last night I was in a rush as needed to get out. On the drive home from the welding shop the car sounded great but there was a severe lack of power.
    This morning I have been under the car and buttoned up all the fittings nice and tight, thinking there was possibly an air leak. I then took the car for a drive and still no different.
    Had a little think about the problem and then realised I had the Thermocouples and old 80s ECU still plugged in, so the car was getting false readings.
    2 seconds later I had unplugged it and ......

    OMG this thing sounds frickin phenomenal !!!!!!!!!

    Video to come shortly

    That exhaust sounds epic; doesn't sound ear splitting loud, just very very throaty!

    Having followed a TR for 1/2 a day over the weekend with a Tubi/decatted, which was epic sound, this takes it to the next level!
