So the exhaust is done,for now, as I will go for a change of backbox for some better sound
Am not saying the sound is bad but is not what I expected,there is no pops and isnt raspy enough
Is more boomy,more like Honda than Rallye...

One thing I didnt think about is that I wont be able to hear the amazing induction sound anymore

Company who work exhaust made me 4-2-1 manifold in stainless steel T304 and heat wraped it,made a decated 2" pipe in steel 409 and backbox in T304








This is how car looks from behind now



Plan is to make sound more like Pugsport and I hope they will achive this

Short videos of my old and new sound:

New month new exhaust

Guess I will never be happy with exhaust until I put my original one back on place.

I bought Pugsport as my last solution,looks great and sound great, but only from outside.
It is far quieter than previous one on start up and idle and is ok until 2800 rpm
After that it continue the same droning sound till end of rpm range and is very loud.
Even worse than last one which suprises me.
I cant here any rasp or anything inside, doesnt even pop like last one,I hear only anoying grinding.
Hope it could get better by time but I doubt it,whould be great if that sound from outside can be heared inside...

Maybe old original will go back sooner than expected

Few pics



Fish eye

Forgot to update, main reason why exhaust was so loud is becouse one screw which hold manifold was loose, the one near lambda sensor

Now is much better but still hopping that exhaust will bed in so it can pop a bit

Yesterday did short video of exhaust soun:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8vst7wZVok

And we made 150000km, 25000 since I have it



We had our first snow,was driving around a bit but on worn summer tires is not so smart as traction was very limited, I had to go driving as we have snow maybe twice in 10 years so good experience for me.



Pics from yesterday:






Next to fix is front left bearing and a must is to get rid of small rust spot on rear hood but all in all very happy,car is going very well.
And during spring need to paint second pair of wheels for new tires so I could leave this one for track.

Didnt update for a while, something got fixed and something got broken...

Car had full service in may, mechanic changed 3 wheel bearings, all oils and filters, incuding brake and gear fluid.He also changed few other bits.

It now has new brainded brake lines as old rubberd was done




This small part made engine running as new, perfect idle.Mechanic took this from 306 parked in his garage:




He also cleaned engine bay:



Same day after I picked up a car I went on track day to test a new amazing asphalt:





It drove perfectly, did few short runs as didnt want to push it for too long.
Here are the videos from all stints:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBMD1x_zKdg

Menaged to go under 2min in last stint as new asphalt has even more grip and tyre wear is a lot better.Still have some time to find so hope to go after a summer again


Few weeks after my cooler started to leak,badly, and it still does as I have no where to go curently:




Manifold started to untwist and seat suffered from constant in and out from car:





And after all this happend few weeks ago...






















I got ass kicked
One guy was trying to go other way in one way street and I had to stop but guy behind didnt react at all,I even menaged to see him in mirror and tryed to pull away but it was to late.I was furious as car means a lot to me.
I dont know how much damage it actually got, car drives fine but he menaged to even bend my seat base and my neck still hurt a bit.
Think he was doing 30-40 kmh

Car will be repaired after security house decide how much cost it will be and when I found someone who is good in fixing this but am affraid car wont be the same anymore as the kick transfer to other parts and dont know if anything else got bend.
I was dissapointed and am thinking of replacing it with something else but I doubt I will find car good to drive and cheap to maintain as this little Pug.

Hope to fix it asap, till than I must drive it carefouly
