Hi mate,

I like your fez,looks cool.the rims really set it off.

As for your exhaust blowing,many moons ago when I had just a mongoose cat back it used to blow.it's due to it being a bigger bore size you stick exhaust past round it and tighten the clamp up and it either blows through the slits or goes hard and cracks due to it not being a tight fit.

Best bet.......save for the manifold and sport cat or de cat.

What do you wana do to the car?

Given the age of your car, around that sort of age STs did have warm start issues, i.e. after being driven for a mile or two, turned off, then refusing to start without extra throttle input (mine had the same problem), surprised it's never been done but this was cured with an ECU update from Ford, if your garage is friendly enough they might do it for you for free, otherwise will be whatever they charge for an ECU update.

looks nice mate but as above, it just needs the ECU update and all will be fine, mine did the same thing but it never really bothered me

so guys a fair few updates...

some of me and dan. hydro saxo ftw



so i had a rethink on the system and made some change

got the new hertz sub dvc "10
and a new audison srx3 amp too. also a new istall so heres prog pics

so we started by getting a board sorting a bend and cutting up the rear quater and fabbing into place


then we made the volcano sub build and built a box under neather.alos all suspended on a frame we built



amp placement

and here the final bits together






so as im no expert we put some detail in tartannn



so whats left

sand down other rear quarter and trim it
fit
tidey up some edges.

the amp cover is trimmed in the same as the seats and the tatan to flow into also.

c&c welcome

big thanks to dan for the help.

built all this for under £100 pound

and 4 nights.. was long nights midnight was a early 1 lol.

love the seats dude, but can't understand why you went through so much effort to build that into your car, i don't get the whole car audio scene, don't get me wrong, i do like loud music n good quality sound, just dont see why you have to jeopardise the inside of your car for it.

i really liked the kenwood scirocco at trax last year, boot build on that was sweet, n the back subs looked almost factory

White Grille Automotive lighting Light Hood
Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Automotive design Personal luxury car

don't wana slag your car off totally, as it was a pretty cool build when you bought it, and the seats are a good improvement to the car, but you can tell the boot build only cost you £100 needs a bit more care dude, like the cover over your amp isn't symmetrical or rounded, think a bit more tartan in the rear might help it a bit too?

So ice always been a audio audio fan. Spent just over 10k on just audio in my last fiesta .
Something I've always wanted.
The build was built by me and my mate materials cost 100 n then man hours into it. I don't think you can really put a price on our own work tbh. 85 percent woudnt even attempt it.
I understand feedback . But I think may be it could be more construtive as such.
We are not wood workers , nor trimmers,nor any way other work so to acheice and say we built it is real pride for us.
Still not complete just yet .. thanks tho
That vw looks abit chav imo lol .
