up grades for the 16m

okie dokie peeps,

Now starts the real work. i have been looking at exhausts.

problem 1, the 430, has a new lambo sensor so if i de cat / replace with sport cats the car will post a warning light and will need a remap.

so this got me thinking, and i have 2 options open to me, replace the box / replace the cats, and box.

now for all who have been down this road,getting the sound right, is of the utmost importance!!! so nuvalari ,r tubi,

Tubi= thunder

Nuvalari = scream

both jobs are very easy,and as you all know i love the sound of fcars in full chatter.
so thoughts please.

Wow Paul Hadn't realised you changed the Stradale. Absolutley gorgous. Health to enjoy Sir. It will make some impact at the shows next year.
Looking forward to seeing it.

4th coat

on me 4th coat of wax and the thing just gets better and better.

the head of the house thinks iv,e moved into the garage (bed gets moved tomorrow)

the white needs a lot of buffing to get it to show its full richness, but i,m getting there. put the sealer on the rear of the car and only the, other half to do.
again the head of the house is away on the last bit of her course, so i will have a good run at getting her finished for the weekend.

Hi Paul, just awesome work - I think we should hold the next FOC meeting in your engine bay! To the Q though - I love the thunderous Tubi's on my v12, but I think the v8 should wale and scream, scaring small children and making AOP's point and scowl!

Haha Michael
