Added Window Spoilers to the Volvo S80, I like the look but also they lower the wind noise when driving with open windows.
Also if it rains, you are still able to drive around with open windows, without any water ingress. And in the hot summers, you can safely let your windows down a little to stop the heat from building up in the car.
When I wanted to mount the TD04HL-16T turbo, I also wanted to couple it with the Japanifold, that should give good performance, but also the distinctive rumble of the 5 cilinder engine. I scored one via internet for a good price. The quality is immaculate, as they can handle a lot of abuse before they even start cracking.
But in the end I sold it, because my 2.4T already had the Japanifold fitted, so happy days 🙂 !
They are made in Japan, hence the name “Japanifold”. Partnr: 9207688
I heatwrapped the new stainless steel Gravity Performance catback exhaust. Unfortunately I ran out of titanium heatwrap, so I ordered some more (black) and finished the job.
It will help with scavenging and is a supporting mod for extracting more horsepower and torque from the Mini.
Bought myself a stainless catback exhaust for my Mini Cooper S R53 Works, as I found the original John Cooper Works catback a little timid for my liking. The JCW catback sounds good, but I know the Mini can sound better 🙂
I took a gamble with the Gravity Performance, a shop which I found on eBay. I noticed the real carbon tips, which looked awesome on pictures and should tie in good with the black/carbon theme I already have.
I’m glad I chose the Gravity Performance exhaust, quality welds, good clamps and awesome carbon tips. Check my video review on Youtube, which also has a small comparison with the JCW catback > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJC8XYb1rPw
