  6. That's a work of art.

  8. Must say I can't wait to see it but also hear it paired with the Akrapovic.

    Top workmanship on the decat CGR :smile:.

  9. I have seen a lot of very good design of exhaust manifold including the one for my 205Mi16 and I do call them pretty but the CGR really has the best fine piece of workmanship compare to them all.

  11. That is fabrication porn!
  12. Well mine is currently being fitted and I'm sitting patiently eating a mcdonalds breakfast waiting....excited lol
  13. What's the verdict ?

    I bet it sounds brilliant
  14. It sounds incredible now lol! So good, just driven it home, saw it spit a nice big flame out the back earlier at the garage!
  15. That looks like a piece of art! I saw a Cobra decat on Facebook yesterday and the difference in quality is laughable. The Cobra looked so shoddy but this looks like it's made to the highest quality and by a company with real pride in its work.
  16. Looks like Motorsport grade fabrication.

    Possibly a 4 axis cnc tig welder.

    RS 175 Lux
  17. Quite thin walled so probably cnc formed too.

    Looking at the welding round the bosses it was actually probably done by hand but it's very tidy.

    Do you know what grade it is? 304 or 409 stainless?

    Correct you are, we are a motorsport fabrication company, but we quite enjoy playing with road-cars so bits like this are mainly to keep us sane as the motorsport industry can get a bit mental at times.

    Everything is welded by hand and pulsed on a foot-pedal (no pulse setting here), means we can get full but controlled penetration, not too much to undercut the weld and not too little to make a weak weld.

    The bends are CNC Mandrel formed on a very high-end bender to make sure there's minimal material shrinkage.

    And it's 304 grade stainless :smile:

    Hope this helps! :blush:

  19. Wow that looks fantastic[emoji1305] really tempted to get one. Did you map the car too afterwards? How does it sound with the Akro? Is your Akro standard from the factory or what??

  20. Car is still standard apart from the decat and air filter.

    It sounds absolutely incredible now with the decat fitted to the akra, yes the akra is standard from factory.

    Will be getting the car mapped soon enough, although it has not even thrown the EML after fitting the decat.
  21. Good stuff! Videos please!!

    Are t you supposed to have it mapped immediately after fitting one of those? Does it drive ok still?

  22. Drives better than before lol...it will be getting mapped yes...just need to wait until next payday first lol!
  23. Vids

  24. It can take some time/miles before the check engine light warning. And i didnt know that they can throw flames without the remap.

  25. Light came on last night, bugger lol! Time for that remap sooner than I planned :smile:

    But yes, definitely chucking out a flame here and there....
  26. Needs vids ffs![emoji24][emoji14]
