Cobalt back box and ISE delete.

Postby IanH » Wed Jan 01, 2020 2:06 pm

Time for a touch of year end fettling yesterday, Cobalt back box to pop on and replacement of the Induction Sound Enhancer with the delete kit (or the standard elbow piece fitted to cars without this ridiculous mish mash).

Rear end up, spot the soapy water spray bottle which makes shifting the rubbers super easy.

Back box in place.

New rubber elbow next to bits to be removed.

Comparison between what comes off and the new elbow.

Bulkhead hole where resulting noise enters the cabin.....

Now blanked.

Excellent pieces of work Ian.
Looked a perfect if chilly day as well.
Especially getting rid of that stupid ( ? ) placebo go-faster toy.
Have a great 20-20.

I do love this colour, how's the new exhaust sound? I still remember pinching your old one for the mk3.

The Cobalt is good, I’m going to put the Good-Win Super Street back on though as it’s better, had to do a minor repair to the removable baffle (corroded mild steel baffle fixing bolt) and had bought the Cobalt to try with the intent of selling one of the exhausts on.
