Sweet mate.

I bet you are happy. The exhaust will only sound sweeter as the carbon builds up.

I want to do these mods myself.

Why no change in between extractors and cat?

Im just curious thats all, is there no need to change the diameter of the pipe?

I couldnt be happier with my car right now!

Except maybe those springs to have it handling a little better. ;)

You will definately not regret doing these mods to your car. Totally worth it.

As to not changing between the extractors and cat, I couldn't really tell you.

I do know that the stock cat in the Sportivo is quite big for what it is!

And I am pretty sure the piping was 2.25" all the way through, someone correct me if I am wrong.

The replacement from the cat back is now 2.5" which I think is pretty big for a 1.8L.

Maybe ask someone like SB or Northy, they'll definately no more about it! :lol:

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments. I'm sure the guys from tonights cruise would have something to say as well. :P

Next thing to do is to take those damn Sportivo badges off, and then get my King Springs installed.

Then, Power FC and Turbo... only kidding. ;)

Cool, thanks Nate.

That is huge pipe for a 1.8L NA.

I guess i will have to stop being lazy and put it up on jack stands and take a look.

Time to start saving for some mods, oh what to do first!

I recommend saving all your pennies, and getting the headers, intake and cat-back exhaust all at once. :P

That is a great recomendation!

I think I will paint the brakes, drop it a bit....

Then do the triple bunger CES style!

Not much change from $2K with dual tip and S/S flanges and K&N filter?

Glad you are stoked with newfound HP. :)

Quick update guys...

Unfortunately my car has been written off due to flood damage from the recent storms here in Brisbame.

A new chapter will begin as I have bought an AE93 SX Hatch.

Will post up some pics and info within the next few weeks.

Thanks to all who showed interest and helped me out with my short journey with my Sportivo.

Oh man, sorry to hear. my heart junk sunk. It was such a nice stivo. Insurance wont cover enough to buy another one?

My insurance company paid out what I had left owing on my loan. Luckily for me I got some extra cash leftover for myself.

I could get another loan for a Sportivo, but at the moment I will struggle to make the repayments.

Oh, how I miss LIFT.

It no longer has the rims that are shown in these pictures.

It now has the stock rims on it.

Also, I got a nice little present on christmas eve when a lady reversed into my car.

The damage isn't huge, but no one likes driving around with dinted doors...

Getting the damage assessed tomorrow, and will hopefully have it repaired ASAP.

Got a new 2" exhaust put on it yesterday, so it sounds a lot better.
