Probably a good idea to steer clear then! There's enough around to be able to pick up a decent one :smiley:

got the standard zorst out the shed today, got under the car and theres no chance in hell it was gonna fit cause ive got a stainless manifold and custom downpipe.

luckily i found where the noise/leak/lack of grunt was coming from, the gasket connecting the manifold and the downpipe was pissing out, took it apart and cleaned all the old sealent off, sealed it up again and its mint! :smiley:

so its still got a stickey out backbox but i like it so f**k it.

and until i put my foot down its the only clue you have to its sleeper nature!

right so not been on for a while, golf is still mint and running well up until about 4 weeks ago when the downpipe cracked! so we made another one and it was sorted.

2 weeks later the backbox tried to fall off and take the rear mount with it so i got another rear box with shorter tailpipes and made new brackets and bolted that to the car. sorted.

took it for a drive and realised the basterd is twice a loud as the other one! doh!

so saturday i decided to soundproof it, now im fooked if im spending a million quid on dynamat so i had a look at cheap alternatives.........roofers flashing tape, bought 3 x 225mm by 10meter rolls from screwfix and set to work, pics next week when its all done.

i also got giddy about undersealing it for t`winter so i got the floor steam cleaned sat morning and there was no rust at all so i was well happy. lets it dry and got the underseal out. what a dirty job, but well worth the effort.

ill get pics up next week. :smiley:
