Exhaust sorted and much happier with it, still not as fine a job as yours, but pretty good for my needs and reasonable at £350. The guy did not quibble and remade the Y piece and changed the end can, with no further charge. Now sounds correct (to me) and is running better. Only issue now is the fuel pump is on its last legs, but that's another story... hope I can sort before Japfest!
Glad you got it sorted in the end,sorry to hear of your fuel pump issue ,my car cut out on the way to getting my exhaust done and again coming back .Changed a few part think i have now sorted it see you at japfest all being well,P.S don't you just love these cars
