    Interesting.... I think this will be done soon!! The one thing that I was disapointed with the most with the 330 was the silent treatment!! Good find :-)

    Just to clarify this is the exhaust end at the back of the car, not where it joins at the engine?

    So the next thing. Will a Pipercross panel filter be louder in the cabin and will it help if I remove the soundproofing from the inside of the bonnet?

    Not really mate but will help (a very small amount) with low rev pickup.

    Right... I had a little look at this just now...

    Disconnected the pipe and low and behold... rusted shut! Aghrr

    Sooooo... decided to spray with WD40 and introduce it to mr hammer and his freind mr extension bar....

    A few solid hand shakes and it gives....

    Well.. when I say gives, the side that I was hitting bent backwards.... oh joy. So now it has one half, half open... I put the pipe back on and tried her. It does sound more burberly... but obviously not as good as it could be :(

    Any tips for a fully open valve?
