I was expecting a touch of the Nova-Maths with 4-5hp increase, but I think my 1.8 has changed performance dramatically on fitting this!
As another reviewer said, makes just enough noise to sound good, but not so loud as to make you feel like a twat! pottering about below 2k and it's quiet as a mouse, give it the beans after 4k and wahey! but then, 70mph cruising doesn't drone unless you are on the power. I was about to take the hardtop off soon anyway, but now I'm driving around with the windows down just to drink in the soundtrack.
Fitment is excellent, with a precautionary buttering with firegum of the gasket against the old cat, everything went together very sweetly. If only the old unit coming off had been 2-piece, I wouldn't even have had to remove the rear lower brace-bar!
