    there has been lots of testing done on these for quite some time.

    I made the lupo the best I could.
    Its your call on what you fit.
    3" should be ok... Badgerwagens on 3" ;)

    Would you expect to see much difference with a 3" downpipe or would similar figures be achieved?

    Also whats the rest of the Lupo's exhaust like?

    Bill do you think it's worth fitting this to a LCR with stock rods and turbo or is the standard sufficient for stage 2?

    It would be good if we could get a British supplier to manufacture a 3.5 inch DP and 3 inch catback for the LCR but it hard work on the phone trying to explain it........we only have one jig etc. The problem is its an old car now. I'll commit to a spend if someone can get a few built.:)

    /\ The mani is for a 1M LCR/TT/S3 bud, your existing setup should be good for good BHP.

    this is for those wanting to push for more power.... ie >300bhp levels.. and that level and above is wise to consider rods... imho

    std bore one for std k04 or normal hybrids... but the best results will obviously be the upsize version as I tested on lupo

    Funny you should mention this, I am literally having this priced up at the moment 3.5" DP in to the 3" Relentless sports cat then 3" the rest of the way through.

    Once I've got the quote through I'll let you know what the costs are. Literally one of the last things left to go on my car now.

    Bill, have you given any consideration to offering these manifolds ceramic coated.

    I had'nt done.. I could look at it.
    We are about to ask for ceramic coating on the tubular vband ones we're making so can chuck it into the pot quote wise.

    What's fitting like with these Bill? Is it still a head off job or can it be done easy enough in situ?
