    Smile Few MOD's & MPG increases

    Car is a 05 1.9 CDTi 150 SRi, Recently removed cat & pre cat, had twin exit system fitted, derestricted airbox, K&N filter in place, also mate who is a Vx tech took off the pipe between Airbox to cold air feed, so air feed now throws air around the airbox space so more air into box, no real increase in noise and bingo MPG has increased, normal week average 140 miles to work & back, before was getting 47/49 mpg, now getting 52/54 and car running very smooth with good pick up in most gears!! Also did a 300 mile road trip last weekend all motorway and averaged 62.4 Well Impressed
