    very very very nice my friend... but one thing... you may want to look into the exhaust tone a bit and see if you can get it to sound more Ferrari esk. Just my 2 cents. Not that the tone you have is bad, it just doesn't seem to fit the cars look is all.

    Thanks Mike, any ideas on how I can make the tone better?
    Other than fitting a flat plane crank V8 of course

    the problem is you don't have the volume displacement to produce the noise that can then be tuned, try removing all oem silencers/mufflers then run the car revving it to get an idea of what noise you've got to play with, next, with the advice of a technician fit a de-restricted muffler to control the noise, flow master may be able to help, or Longlife, I found them particularly helpful

    If you went down the cat delete tube, make sure you don't have to have cat for the MoT test, you may have to have the ability to put it back on for the test, in other words shuffle between the two.
