Great vid, get some more up!

What difference did you notice in terms of the actual sound? Deeper? More 'brutal'?

Also was there much difference when driving 'normally' i.e. not thrashing it?

Thinking of getting this done myself

Can I ask how much you paid?

I paid just under Ł200 for a custom made stainless x-pipe with straight bits. (Was too frozen to photograph finished product).
I have not had enough chances for a damn good thrashing due to work , weather and man flu. But when the car is warmed up properly it is a drone free zone at normal speeds
Idle sounds like a V8 should to me, noise is crazy above 4000rpm!
When I get a chance and it's bright enough I will do another video to try and illustrate this noisy beast in action


(Noise Gestapo, Neighbours or neighbouring county residents have not complained yet!! )

The sun is out, I'm just going to jump into the shower and then I'm off to scope a local (recommended) zorst specialist. I could very well soon be a member. Is there a special badge, or medal?

Will it be throwing flames? May have to call it "Spitfire".

Heh, my ZZR1100 (ZX11)'s party trick was 18" flames out of the exhausts (killswitch off, full throttle, switch back on - bang!) - great for echos in tunnels and waking-up bus queues, but probably not so good for the engine or exhaust system.
