That's understandable, you want to get it running well first to make final tweaks i guess knowing that (hopefully) you wont have to go back again?! Do you like the carbon look though?I still haven't got to the rollers, I haven't had a chance to even get the car out of the garage since October. I honestly thought you would paint the cover to keep the mostly OEM look..
I like the carbon, are you saying you would prefer painted?No, I am another +1 on the cover look. Especially as it's only visible if you go looking for it.
Unsure what you are saying exactly? Yes for the price its probably worth it, but these are short manifolds and dont really do much for power other than making the car loud. Also remember they are made using cheap quality stainless that could crack.I don't do this often, especially in a thread, but I do like a shiny thing and wondered if either you or Mr Drew find this as tempting as I would (if I didn't have a 1.7 diesel)
This is a stainless steel decat EXHAUST MANIFOLD for Z18XE engine as fitted to Vauxhall Astra etc. It fits the Z18XE "small block" engine, not the earlier big block. It is to fit the cars fitted with a catalytic converter on the manifold in order to run without a cat.www.ebay.co.uk
Sorry for the interrupt. My sad searching of all things Corsa rears its head. Simply typing "cease and desist" will make sure it never happens again. I suppose decat is a dead dog now, but for more track-orientated cars maybe... again, apols if this is getting in the way of a good thread.
Thanks buddy! It's no trailer queen, but i certainly plan to look after it a bit more now! Hence the catch can - i will be making a custom one, as the current one has an inlet that's too small.I thought you'd gone a bit quiet but that, in fairness, is a lot of update. Car must be good for another two decades now - almost makes you want to drive it upside-down.
You should do, as you've had it for ages, and spent a lot of time and money on it! I must admit though, on axle stands its a truly horrible job! Totally worth it thoughLooking good!
Some effort gone in there with that work, makes me want to do my Red shed.
