    TD Exhausts

    I’m the same as Martin had the res but found it was to loud so have swapped the centre pipe to super res and think it’s much better. I still have the 2nd cat. The super res is far from quiet really. I’d go super res then if you want it louder can buy my res pipe which is cheaper than going the other way 😁
  3. I would point out that it depends how much of your current policy remains as to how expensive it will be for a whole year, and like all insurance factors, each risk is a multiplier of sorts and combines unfavourably with other negative factors.

  5. Got quoted for a tune, exhaust manifold and catback by admiral and just got an admin fee to make the changes 👌

    Tyres were faultless and wear looks very consistent across the tyres

    Awesome! bedford is a great track. How did your tyres wear in the heat?

    Had an awesome day at Bedford yesterday with @willclarke and @will300. Car was absolutely faultless even in the near 30° heat and it was me giving out way before the car! Oil temps never got over 116° even after an 8 lap stint. Running with the bonnet vents open seems to be good for around a 10° reduction in oil temperature as @will300 was running around 10° higher than me and we have the same oil cooler. The pfc.08 pads were absolutely faultless - stopping power was incredible, pedal feel was really good and they showed no sign of fade. Will gave me some caliper temperature stickers which showed the calipers were getting plenty warm but still no sign of fade The AD08RS's were also excellent with fantastic grip and minimal wear in the high temperatures although even they went off a bit after about 3 laps in the high afternoon temperatures. Schroth Asm 3 harnesses were also really good and gave a really nice sense of connection to the car. Couple of random pictures from the day
  9. Same for me no extra charge 😁

    Facelift lower mpg

    Many thanks for the explanation, most helpful.

    I found the resonated too loud - I bought it first in this configuration. I swapped the centre section for a super resonated that's just right for me. I have the 2nd cat in place and a UEL manifold.

    Resonated will probably be okay if you keep the second cat. It's a bit loud without. I ended up putting a double resonator where the second cat goes. Or go for super resonated which will be okay. It's a matter of preference though.

    Facelift lower mpg

    @mart86 which FI did you go for. It seems right for a turbo but for a roots, centrifugal one , you will lose more mpg , even if driving gently. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Facelift lower mpg

    To reiterate Spikyone's statement, the old readings were as per NEDC and hence higher. The new readings are as per WLTP and when it was launched the road tax slabs were also changed to reflect new CO2 calculations. I think WLTP was implemented in Sept 2017 and all manufacturers had to comply and universally MPG went down. Some websites still have the old NEDC values while others have WLTP.

    So I am taking the drive to Tuning Developments in August to get the NA package and I am thinking about getting a catback at the same time. I am stuck between the Res and the SuperRes catbacks - Does anyone have any tips for picking either one? Also if there is anyone in the York area that has either of the catbacks with the TD UEL, would you be open to meet so I can hear the sound in person? I offer some nice roads around me for driving Cheers!

    HKS Intake Duct

    I have a Grimmspeed intake, and they suggest doing the snorkel mod.

    Oxygen Sensors

    That sounds a lot for the #2 sensor, sure they haven't quoted you for the wrong one? It's not a wide range sensor like the #1 sensor. See if you can find the part number online and have a shop about. Just a Denso sensor IIRC.

    HKS Intake Duct

    I was inspired by this thread and the results of the tests they had done: https://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56341 I have not cut mine as far back as they have done it in that thread however, that was a bit too far for my taste. Simply said, it is a tight job to get it all done, but yet your hands in there and unbolt the snorkel and move it out towards the left hand side and you can pull it out. Cut the snorkel and you can slot it back in via the right hand side.

    Oxygen Sensors

    So my number two oxygen sensor has packed up. I've been quoted £250 by toyota for a new one. Is this right or is someone pulling my leg? TIA
  21. All my mods declared to Admiral (Wheels, exhaust, remap etc) and all I had to pay was the admin fee.

    Which diff oil?

    By chance have part numbers for washers that need to be changed when changing diff & gearbox oils?
  23. Lauren

    Which diff oil?

    The washers do need renewing after a few refills. I just OEM oil, it gets done at service.
  24. oh yeah my wheels and a few cosmetic changes and fancy stereo upgrade are declared with no extra charge....i'm just considering a catback (on order) and was wondering what to expect when I ring the insurers.

    Servicing query??

    I use the same independent guy I've always used, I'm yet to own anything so exotic he can't work on it. Sent from my VFD 710 using Tapatalk
  26. Power is done on %age and is not that expensive an uplift. Other things like wheels are normally just declared without extra premiums. Sent from my LG-Q6 using Tapatalk

    2 weeks of ownership update. Absolutely love the car, as pretty much everyone on here does! So much fun to drive! If I'd designed a car myself it probably wouldn't be far off this one.
