New headers & high flow cats



Just got my Dansk headers and 200 cell high flow cats fitted, it's made a huge difference, no drown but a GT3 type scream at around 3,000 RPMs. It feels quicker and generally just freer. Going for a custom remap on Monday to finish. I would highly recommend these mods.

Aside from maybe fitment issues, are there any differences between Danske headers and ebay cheap-o headers?

I'm thinking of doing the same mods, only with Circuit works high flow cats and ebay headers. I'm glad to hear you like it. What muffler are you using?

Are you using a stock muffler? That is my plan.

Nope, I have a performance muffler.....I was advised that a stock muffer would both restrict performance and the sound experience?? Not sure if that's true but for a few hundred bucks more I went all in! It really does sound amazing.
