  1. Buy a 380/410 exhaust and then order a link pipe from Jimmat 2bular
  2. I’m sure I read, from a reputable source, that despite the actual plaque numbers, that they made under 100 road cars. no idea whether that’s true, but judging by the gaps in plague numbers on this thread, it could be correct.
  3. This is the one I had
  4. Hey you crazy Greek! That was the exhaust I had on the Cup before I put the 380 exhaust on. It was a nice exhaust but not much louder than the OEM. Non-valved 70mm version. I think at the time it was for road. I know now you still want to do track days, so perhaps the best solution. You know this, but real men buy the valved 2bular or 380/410 exhaust😀
  5. No 380 down pipe needed. You use the existing standard down pipe and simply ask Jim to make you the Link pipe, so that the back box can connect. Epic sound, but you probably won’t get on any tracks, other than Spa and the Nurburgring. The best modification you’ve can do, as it gives the car the drama it needs
  6. Same brakes and disc diameter mate. Just bought some RS14’s again for mine.
  7. Yiannis, I had the track version of Jim's exhaust on my car in 2018. Was louder than standard, but simply not loud enough for what I wanted, hence the change to the 380/410 exhaust. I think the car would have made it on a loud day, but to be honest, if you want noise, then Jim's road exhaust is far better sounding, but you won't get on at most tracks. Alastair has Jim's road exhaust, so you know what that sounds like. If you want to do track days, then perhaps best to stick with the current standard exhaust. Other option is to fit a 380 exhaust, with link pipe from Jim,
  8. Remember the day I collected mine. I was praying for forgiveness!
  9. Fitted my kit over Christmas and was able to finally take the car out this afternoon. I didn’t need to remove the wheel arch, which was a benefit. Followed the bedding in instructions to the letter, by allowing the car to idle for some 20 minutes when fitted. Took the the car out today and gradually increased revs during the course of the test. Did some 40 miles of mixed driving and the throttle response is certainly better. I’m not a lover of supercharger whine, although coming from a Honda S1, the additional noise provides a more visceral experience. The roads were
  10. The Cup cars are so much more than the sum of their parts. Gary kindly took me out in his a while ago, whilst I also drove a selection of V6’s, 350’s and a 380. The original V6 Cup’s are raw, intimate cars to drive and extract the best from. The fact that, along with the 360’s, are the last motorsport cars adds kudos, if little or no more value. I bought one almost 2 years ago, and really do enjoy it. Whilst a standard V6 is cheaper, retro fitting the cup’s set up will cost a lot of money. With the espxception of the 360 currently for sale, and the freak £41,995 pewter Cup, I’ve n
