    My old 3" system was too noisey for a daily NA car, hence running a smaller 2.25" system now.

    This was nothing to do with midrange torque, a bigger exhaust after the header would make more power EVERYWHERE.
    In fact No exhaust at all after the header makes the most power.

    To be honest the whole point in ownership for me is to use the car as much as possible and enjoy it.
    I know it works for some, but having a separate daily didnt really work for me. I found myself losing interest or paying too much attention maintaining the other daily car.

    Amen. People keep telling me my car isn't or shouldnt be a daily any more but no way, I want to use it and enjoy it every time I need to drive.

    Is this how it all works? I had always thought (assumed) that bigger exhaust meant a more resposive throttle, across the entire range? I'm an amateur BTW, just just little enough knowledge to be dangerous.

    Edit. - completely ignore this . I've just read response from Dale that worded perfectly, what I had thought. I also responded to a message without refreshing my browser, so hadn;t seen all the other replies since.

    Unless it is something that sits in a garage and only comes out on a trailer for shows it's a waste not to drive the best car you have as often as you can.

    I much prefer mine. I have choice of 1l corsa, 1.4 diesel 65mpg 206 or mine averages 25mpg. Always pick mine, build it up to enjoy it and that's exactly what they should do when you get behind the wheel.

    I think the front's too low to not have skirts. My main gripe is the holes in the rear quarter though I think. Still looking great though mate.
