    [/quote]

    I was pulled over at the weekend for a go with this new technology. Was followed by a squad car down a street for about half a mile and then got the blue lights and pulled in. Guard told me about new limit of 99db and new meter for on the spot test. They hooked it up and I had to rev to 3,750rpm. It measured at 82.5 at tick over and at about 103 each time it reached 3,750 – we gave it 3 goes because the guard wanted to do one himself with his hand pressing down the accelerator!!!

    I just said “Yes guard, no guard, 3 bags full guard” because I could see it was going to work out ok. I asked a few questions around why it had to be 3,750rpm and where they were placing the equipment, but I didn’t even get out to look as my wife was with me so wanted to keep it hassle free. At the end of it they told me I “would have to get something done about it”. I told him I had a bung at home that I had never used and that would make a huge difference. I have to have it sorted before I’m next in the place where it happened (about 90 miles from home)!!

    My car has a full decat with Ninja II backbox from scoobyworld. The backbox was quiet when I got it, it’s the decat that made it loud. I was going to put it through the NCT with just the OEM downpipe back on, not using the bung!

    Probably need a sports cat...well worth it to avoid NCT hassles etc plus you'll only lose a few bhp

    The alternative is looking better at the moment - swap downpipes for NCT, pass NCT, sell car!!!

    here you go john. New wheels on 2 weeks ago, car washed, polished and waxed. Was going to change the exhaust manifold but had a change of heart as whats on it is better from what i can find online.
