Hi Mossy.
Yes it was me taking the car out for aq run. Had been waiting allday for the snow to stop and the sun to come out!
Fitted a pipercross Induction kit so needed to give it a blast...what a great sound!!! between 5-6 th revs it just growls!! have to always drive with the roof down now so i can hear it.
New exhaust next although need to listen to a few other peoples cars to get an idea.

Hi mossy

I got it from the pipercross shop http://www.pipercross.net/index.asp
Took about an hour to fit. taking off some of the old bolts on the stock air filter was the hardest part. It comes with a nice looking heat shield. I also have put in a length of ducting to flow cold air into the filter. Once I fit a front grill i will fit in a aluminium scoop. It really makes a difference to throttle responce over 4K and sounds great. Have a look on my msn site as there are a couple of pics of it.
I have not got round to changing the oil pressure switch yet as I'm sure that is the problem as I think my engine would of given up by now if it was anything serious! (touch wood).
Give me a shout if you are about again as I stay in Drumnadrochit and can stop & say hi.
