Well impressed with the new exhaust from Tony Banks..... The Aussie "Wildcat" headers (4-2-1 manifold in English) were fitted along with a sports cat and a 2" single box system. The box sits nicely between the transfer box and the fuel tank, it should be safe.... Tony was a nice bloke to deal with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. When first quoting, he said that a cat back system for a standard Jimny would be around £300.



The plan has worked..... There is a lot more torque and you get it lower down :cheer: :cheer: :cheer: Even managed to spin the wheels up on the change from 1st to 2nd (in the wet and by accident...it's changed) A little disconcerting really, I had gotten used to how much throttle to use in the wet and it looks like I will have to learn again.... queue brown pants.....

Only a motorway drive home and it is much more responsive and eager to accelerate than before.

There was a negative that cost me a couple of hours, lambda 1 failed even though it came out easily. Quite common and only a £36 part. Swapped and codes cleared, they took it for a test drive and all was great. When I restarted the car to leave the EML light was on.... the second one had gone too but not shown on the first read..... As the second sensor doesn't affect fuelling like the first, I decided to change it myself at home, rather than hang around while parts were delivered again...

Very cool. So it's 421 manifold to second factory cat to 2 inch system or have you gone for a sports cat?

2" all the way with a sports cat Lambert.... Wait til you hear it, sounds great.

A bit over the top but it will cope with 200hp so I think I'll be ok if I make it to a 1600 lol...

Oooh sexy. Gotta love a big bore. The improvement in torque is seen on the stock ecu too which is good to know.

Had the bonnet up...... The manifold does radiate heat but it seems manageable, it certainly looks the part and works as well as it looks.



The hole at the bottom of second gear is still there but it is not so deep and the engine now climbs out with less struggle.

I have decided to change the gearing with an R7ME gearbox and manual transfer box from the pre VVT M13A..... The change will allow me to run 29" tyres, so I'll be looking for some new muds...

I did buy an SJ. "mini-lobster" transfer box which drops both high and low ranges by 30% but didn't consider the price of the fitting kit.... a bit beyond me at the moment so I will have to move it on.

Could you use the holes in the head above the manifold to secure a heat shield keeping the heat from accumulation under the bonnet?

Yes, I see where you mean, I'm waiting to see if there is any issue.... but having seen vents on James's turbo car, they look good and would solve the problem... I think...

I don't want to cover it up to be honest, it's the only thing that looks remotely sporty on the car.... :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Best of luck with your test! I'm sure you'll be fine. It's almost a new car now anyway.
