As long as you are not running with a straight through side exit system you should be fine.

Noise is not an issue with my car any more, got tired of being told to go home at 2 events so a new exhaust system was installed.

I'm sure most people think noise = HP ie fart cannons. A well designed system is quiet, with good horsepower gains.

Well, what a day!

Got to the track prepared car for scruteneering and realised alternator wasn't charging!!!
Quick trip to Autobarn fixed that problem, caused by a faulty charging lamp on the regulator.
Missed a few sessions as a result, got on the track did one warm up lap and burst a new intercooler hose!!
Back to Autobarn for a new hose, they only had 3 inch and I need 80mm.
So, after some serious wrestling and stretching got it on. with thanks to a man called Charlie who I hadn't seen for about 10 years.
Unfotunately Charlie used some oil to help get the hose on, this he got from the dip stick which he didn't put back correctly.
This resulted in oil all over the engine bay on the following run.
After some cleaning up I did get on the track finally.
Did a PB 1:17.96!! very happy with that time given how little track time I had (on some new tyres).

That was a very testing day!!!!!

Good to hear it was nothing serious, almost a comedy of errors. I bet with some more track time that PB will be falling even further!

What was the turn out like?

I think there will be faster times as the track had some water on it in a few spots.

It would have to be the lowest turnout to any track day I have seen, in total 20 cars today.

My boss  was running at the 6 hour, I forgot about the JM sprint today.. But with the threat of rain all day, no wonder the turnout was a fair bit down.
