    Yeah, Stratford is not too bad. Let me know when you go again and can always meet up with you there.

    Or maybe even a little TRO meet

    I’ve had the Toda exhaust on for two years and while it’s a great exhaust, it’s a little too much on the loud side for me and I always missed the sound of the RM01A I had on my DC5. Rather than buy a new one and then sell the Toda, I’ve been on the lookout for someone who fancied a direct swap. It’s only taken about 18 months but I saw a post on the FD2 group, jumped at the chance and arranged it all with someone who wanted something a bit louder. A direct swap was agreed which I think is fair. We both went to John's house to swap it all over... after I had to buy some jump leads to get the car started.



    I’m a happy man. I can’t feel any difference in power even though the b pipe looks a bit smaller compared to the Toda. If anything it feels a bit more potent but that’s probably BS and my head is lying to me to make me feel good. Either way, drone is significantly reduced and it’s lovely when I open the throttle, nice JDM rasp sort of sound but not too much. Just right for my ears. I’m a happy man and it was lovely to drive the car again after two months or so.

    The FD2 is now back in the garage and probably won't move until next year.

    Itís not when you open it up. I went under a bridge with the window down and laughed.

    Hey Chris, loving the FD2, had a deposit down on one but the insurance was a deal breaker

    Just out of interest, what is your routine when garaging as I'm probably going to do the same as I don't fancy tracking it in this wonderful weather! Do you use a cover? Disconnect the negative? Start it once a week? etc

    Any advice would be appreciated
