    just got the manifolds fitted today and nearly 0 difference in sound :-( seems a little more peppy through the range but on the whole quite disappointed, am now definitely getting the centre boxes removed and having stainless throughout I mean I was hoping for more sound then power and it hasn't really given me either, anyway I'm happy I have a stainless manifold(not headers by the way) although I wish I did get them now. so next mods are straight through stainless from manifold no cat and getting it tuned to work with the mods. anyone else surprised at no sound difference? Cuz I sure am lol

    Lol, just had the chip delivered from Enda @ end tuning, would definitely recommend getting one from this guy very fast service and extremely cheap for what he offers, noticed power where it just wasn't before and its been raining hard here so haven't given it a dry road test yet, at the moment it's just spinning up as soon as you get 2nd or even just accelerating in 1st!! had it mapped to limit at 7k and it sounds amazing, like it was built for it. Next step straight through stainless centre pipes (removing centre boxes) so if that doesn't make it sound even better I'll be stumped and gutted lol
