Well impressed! Just drove it home and im shocked!

All,
Picked the mini S up. Its modded with 15% reduced pulley, crank pulley mod, magna flow manifold, sports cat, Remapped more mods on suspension GTT this and Lohen that! Well happy.
This little Mini is quick! Quicker than I imagined, Ive had vag in the past with big turbo TT's and this little nipper took my breath away! What a little machine it is!....
Question, From the cat back its a standard exhaust??
IS me throwing another 500 quid at a cat back system going make a difference??

Cheers
JAy

Hi Jay,
Mines a similar spec to yours & I also had Lohen fit a Milltek stainless catback system a couple of years ago when the original was breaking up, but to be honest, other than maybe a slightly different exhaust pitch, I didnt find any discernable difference in performance.

So unless your system is in urgent need of replacement, you could probably put your money elsewhere.
Biggest bang-per-buck with your setup, is probably to just spend an extra 2- per fill up on higher octane fuel such as Shell's V-Power or BP's Ultimate (that is if you dont use it already), - The engine management computer should adjust settings to suit after a couple of tankfulls
