    had it done yesterday,can't think of the company my mate took me their so i will ask him....its in plymouth devon and cost me £100 to have it done which i thought was cheap.made all new brackets and cut the bumper out.can hear the turbo wistle now and when you boot it and change gear is sounds like its got a dump valve.

    £100 for a whole new exhaust system? Fair enough....

    That dump valve sound is the turbo flutter, I want a dump valve as I like the sound. Need to figure out to fit one to a diesel as they have no throttle.

    Diesels dont need dump valves.....just another boost leak....

    2.5" pipe is best to go for also....

    Hardly anything mate. In France atm.... made my self a cheap exhaust system to go into it and was rather pleased at how it performed and sounded, will deff get a decent one soon. A long awaited stage 1 is still on the list.

    ^^ Have a word with young J Dave when you go for the stage 1, he has done some remarkable things with his Pug ;)

    get the stage 1 done it only takes 10 minutes...i found the best way is useing a mirror so you can see the holes and rolling the car backwards in 3rd and the holes line up in seconds,rocking it forwards and backwards takes ages.
