    Nice!
    Are you preparing to get a tune? As far as I see you getting everything installed.

    What's left if I may ask? Reading you thread you have nearly everything....
    Is it going to be a custom tune or a well known 'off the shelf' type?

    BTW, those hose clamps are brutal!

    TME has a 200 cell cat. Ferrita has a 100 cell cat
    Looks great. The sound will be even better once you have a tune.

    As the sun was out today , Time to have a play I did get a couple of SEAT splitters a while back .


    The problem with the spoiler is its not wide enough to reach to the sides of the bumper, My take was to make it wider than stock by cutting two up to make one wider.








    Not quite finished but not far away.

    The difference is 10cm wider in the end.

    I don't like fibre gash splitters. That looks quite good.

    I've got a spare p2r bumper here and I bought the cupra splitter quite a while back, hoping to send them to TC to make up some. At I know roughly what it will look like now on a sonic.

    To be honest the cost of them is it worth even thinking of making any ?

    I'll let TC make that decision, but I was after a slightly different style.

    Good idea thinking about cutting two up.

    Just fitted new TCV .
    I am guessing the middle line text is the date code.



    Also new over engine pipe.

    Nice clean engine bay! What was wrong with the previous pipe?
    Btw I had the impression that you're going to go with the grey Pierburg (Porsche 996) instead of the OEM.

    On the old pipe one of the brackets broke off & the 2nd bracket was cracked, when I fitted the new hoses it didn't sit right with the brackets not there.
    Yes I did fit the grey Pierburg 7.22908.03.0 for a while but I want to keep things stock for the Map later on this year .
    Would be nice to find out the difference between the two valves from Pierburg.

    Also passed MOT this morning

    Congrats! I would slap the inspector if your car fails on the MOT.

    Regarding the two Peirburg units, with the stock the car starts pulling hard around 1800 rpm vs the grey 2100-2200. At least this is what I've noticed.
    The prev stock lasted around a year. Will see how the grey performs. I have a brand new unused OEM to keep it as a spare unit.

    The OEM TCV handles better partial throttle also. The grey TCV "maxes" out the duty cycle with the K24. The OEM doesn't
    I had a grey TCV but Contrast asked to fit the OEM before tuning my car.
