    Any sound clips? I am interested in hearing it. I think you are the first person i know that added 3" exhaust on a 1.3L engine!

    1.2 ;) and go on YouTube loads of people do it! No sound clip but I do have a video that I can't even upload.

    There is a guy on YouTube with the same car and exhaust as me here's the link. Sounds much louder in real life

    this really boggles my mind, what do you do so you can afford that? Not trying to be rude but truly curious.

    Ha ha... it's my dream car. I think it's going to have to sit in the showroom for a few more years before I can afford to pick it up.

    Where's all the mad cars?!?!?!

    I have a Scion FR-S as my daily driver, a 1994 Toyota Supra project car and a 1959 Morris Mini project car.

    The Supra is a fully built bottom end, 3.2L, 10.5:1 high compression motor with a Precision 66mm turbo and an AEM Infinity. Car just had its first start last weekend and hopefully will be buttoned up and tuned by the end of this month. I'm hoping for 800whp on E85, but we'll see how the turbo holds up.

    (This is before the motor went in)

    The Mini is a ground up restoration with the body being stripped back to metal and redone. Plus, I ripped out the dinky 850cc three-pot and swapped in a 1.8L Honda B18c5 from a USDM Integra Type-R. The car is slowly being completed, but probably won't be done until Summer 2016.

    Started out like this:

    Now like this:

    The FR-S is mostly stock, just sticky tires and wider wheels. And I've been foraying into the world of tuning, so the car currently has a custom E85 tune that I've been working on that netted me about 30 wheel horsepower and about 25 lb/ft, which is a significant gain in a naturally aspirated car.

    So yeah, those are my cars!

    2002 1.4 Peugeot 206 LX... first car :(

    Needed something cheap to insure and even cheaper to buy. Managed to pick up a relatively good condition one for £650. Now to learn how to fully service it myself!

    Love the Mini. Actually like your whole set up. I want to take my Legacy to stage II or III after this winter. Full 3.5" catback exhaust, New up and down pipe, new turbo, and maybe a custom tune. Should be able to hit 325-350 BHP plus have the turbo spool up at 2500 RPMs. Fingers crossed the plan works out. Hopefully 0-60 will be under 5 secs.

    Hell yeah dude, that would be sick! I've actually been looking into getting a Gen 4 Legacy wagon, so I'm in love with your car! I'm a Subie guy at heart and used to have an 05 STi that was an absolute rocket! The EJ responds well to mods, so you should be able to make awesome power with a full exhaust, maybe a VF39, and a tune with an AP.

    If I do get a Subie, I'll probably get a wagon with a blown motor so I can do a MCM inspired EZ30 or EZ36 swap. FA20 isn't off the table either, as they've proved to be very stout when it comes to adding boost. But I have to finish all of my other projects first...
