    Ok great and does the rear feel sturdy enough? I know most of the braking comes from the front anyway!

    And Yes they are included in both of those eBay auctions aren’t they? Sorry I am still trying to learn, mine is a facelift, this wouldn’t affect it at all would it? Attached some pics of my current setup for reference, did yours look similar if you can remember?
    Thanks!

    I am now dangerously close to ordering a sports cat downpipe and and a revolution stage 2.

    I have an intercooler and all the connections waiting to be fitted.

    Comparison of the 70mm downpipe and sports cat compared to standard:

    Things never go to plan, so I am not finished as soon as i thought. Really struggled to separate the exhaust joiner from the millek exhaust, I guess I over clamped it and I had also used some exhaust sealant. So I had to remove the exhaust and cut the connect off. New longer joiner on order.

    Intercooler mounted:

    There is DIY FAQ guide in the 6j section but no one has posted on how to support the top of the intercooler, other wise it will flap around.

    My solution - Two simple DIY brackets mounted to the crash bar

    Tough lesson learned

    "ALWAYS DISCONNECTED THE BATTERY"

    Working on my cars normally I do, but this time I figured I am only fitting an exhaust, so didn't bother. Long story short I (excuse the pun) I shorted the downpipe on the alternator regulator.

    I though nothing more of it. But once I had the car back together yesterday, I started it to be met with a charge/battery lamp on the dash. Set about the car with multi-meter, and quickly realised that it wast charging at all.

    I have removed the old regulator, not so easy in situ. I hope it will be as easy as swapping the regulatory over, fingers crossed!

    MVP tonight was my trusty multimeter.

    By the power of elimination I was able to determine that there was a broken circuit between the alternator and the battery:

    Replaced my flimsy eBay special arms beast with a genuine SEAT one today.
    So much better. Solid, no wobble and your can actually rest your arm on it

    And Revo stage 2 tune booked in. Also means a nice trip across the Öresund bridge to Copenhagen as that was the nearest Revo dealer
