Well before purchasing the pipe I read all the other reviews, but there was a lack of comments from owners with turbo modified cars.

My Mk1 1.6 Roadster has a Greddy turbo running at a low 5.5psi linked to a HKS Supper dragger exhaust system (cat back).

Here is what I have found (300 miles covered).

Fitting:
Got local garage to fit as I was worried about seized nuts, mentioned in most of the other reviews!
Of course no such problem on mine, it took the chap exactly 14 minutes from driving in to the garage to driving out again, and we had a chat! £10...
(notes: use loads of fire gum stuff at the outset to avoid problems and don't worry about the temp sensor, just disconect it).

Observations:
It is not noticably louder on my car, mine was already loud though...
Yes it makes the car faster and smoother in fact it is incredible how much better the power feeds in, and just keeps coming. The turbo spools up much earlier and there is less of a punch and more smooth power, much more driveable on the road and noticably faster, brilliant.
I cannot fault this product, an absolute must on any car with a turbo.
