That's awesome, how much was the system in the first place? I want a 3" system.
The guys at Phoenix custom exhausts are awesome, I messaged them about the car being a bit too boomy inside when at low revs pottering about so asked them if they could make me up a silenced decat - this came in the post, all custom made. They didn't charge and it fits a treat... and most important it's just taken the edge off the deep note from the exhaust!
Highly recommended guys!
Hi mate, the system itself is very light and the rear mounts allow for plenty of movement, I have a brace on the downpipe to the back of the block so it takes away any kind of strain on the turbo and downpipe... plus the usual polybushed dog one so there isn't anything to worry aboutI may have missed this in previous posts but have you had any problems with taking away the pre cat gasket and fixings? I assumed the springs and that had to be there to give a bit due to engine movement etc. Seems much better to do what you've had done than constantly have to mess around with gasket and fixings as I'm having to do now.
I may look into a silenced decat like yours for mine, wonder how much they usually are....
Cheers mate, must be a bit of a nightmare for guys who have to pay a mechanic to sort for them and trust their work!Always really enjoy reading this thread. It's just a case of, there's an issue, sort it, no faffing and no bother about small issues. Looks like a brilliant trip, would like to do something similar myself.
To be fair Incy's Clio is normally pretty quietNice to see I’m not the only one to wear earplugs in a clio on the motorway!
It was mostly the Armin Van Buuren related ripped up ear drums causing the issue - totally worth it though. The ZZZZZs were definitely carbon monoxide poisoning.
Cracking idea tbh mate! Mine is so light with the hydraulic kangoo set up. Makes driving very easy but at the same time it's incredibly grabby. I did away with that dampener though which doesn't help.I’ve got a Sachs performance clutch mate and I’m not a fan of the high bite point on 182 clios and it’s heavy as hell.. also just like tinkering!

Yeah, I’ll see how the setup feels without a damper. What clutch do you have?Cracking idea tbh mate! Mine is so light with the hydraulic kangoo set up. Makes driving very easy but at the same time it's incredibly grabby. I did away with that dampener though which doesn't help.

Are they cup racer rears?
Cheers mate, yeah annoyingly you are right. I’m running out of mods.. thought about wheels and still want to experiment with an engine I have at work, I don’t want forged pistons though.. thanks for the followJust gave you a follow on insta. Came back here to refresh myself on this awesome project and found out there isn't much else to do to this now, it's pretty darn perfect.
