Non res race might be a winner so. It'll be with a sports cat, I don't want to be going through the hassle of changing that around every year.

I'll eventually get around to fitting all these bits I'm buying ha.

So, still waiting for the radiator to arrive. It should hopefully be here tomorrow, which makes it six weeks since I ordered, a few more than the three Pro Alloy initially said it'd take.

While I've been waiting, I noticed on Sunday that my exhaust is blowing a bit. The previous owner had it off at some point as there's a cut above the rear axle, so it could just be that clamp has loosened or that, I need to get under it once it stays dry for longer than five minutes to have a look.
Naturally I did the sensible thing when you have a standard exhaust that's blowing; I ordered a Milltek non res race system and downpipe with sports cat.

Ordered that on Monday afternoon from Demontweeks.. It arrived earlier today. That's very impressive.
Haven't unwrapped it yet as I don't want to until I'm fitting it to the car to minimise fingerprints.

So..
Went out to have a look at the blowy exhaust on my lunch break, figuring something just came loose, maybe.
Not so much.

I need the car for the office tomorrow and the blowy exhaust was annoying. Luckily, that Milltek exhaust arrived yesterday.
Off with the old, the bolts onto the downpipe were not coming off with a ratchet and I couldn't get the impact gun up there. Wobble extension to the rescue.

On with the new. The Focus RS hangers were a bit of effort to get on, being much stiffer and bigger. Couldn't get the hanger bar on the backbox the whole way through, just almost through so shouldn't go anywhere.

I'll need to have another look at it over the weekend as it doesn't quite sit straight, so just need to adjust it a bit to sort that.
Haven't fitted the downpipe yet as this was a rush job and that looks like much more hassle.

It does sound nice though, even with the stock downpipe.
