    body is clean except a few little bits so gonna get it resprayed, going to swap engines overs when i get the time got the dastek unit form ross going to be on its way once i pay him for it. new exhaust system going to be made for it.

    tho after a hard days graft and with the help of alan we managed to get the coilovers swapped around wheels and we got rid of a rusty door and put one of my good ones on it, oil change and some new sparkplugs got my open grill onto it my deglobed indicators replaced the missing foglight clip and evicted the small china man that had taken up residence in the wheel arch

    Personally I'd go for a 4-2-1 system as they're supposed to be better for power/torque spread, but I'm sure the Gti guys who've actually charged theirs will tell you better. :)

    You will be hard pressed to find a 4-1 off the shelf without spending a fair wack, ebay jobby or toyosports £150 is probably your best bet. Unless you have other plans in the pipeline?

    From what i know/heard.. 4-2-1 better for overall power/torque. 4-1 is better for top end torquee

    willie if you are planning on going turbo in future just buy a 100 quid toyosports header off ebay and a CAST IRON pulsar turbo mani later down the line.

    i stress cast iron turbo mani...

    i dont see how he can make it so a turbo can be bolted on, just get a normal catback then when you go turbo all you need is the downpipe meeting up to it.

    fair enough ebay job and cat back system then thanks guys

    and i know the new one jsut look's like the old but i loved the old one so much i dont see any reason not to try and rebuild it with a different shell :).

    will look loads better once i get it down to quickdraw for a spray job in a couple of months

    eddie : i was going to have someone make the 4 - 1 manifold for me man but it aint happening now so no need to think aobut it

    If you need a new cat, I'd suggest a 200 cell sports effort from MIJ. They did one for mine for £150 delivered :)
