    Well my Magnaflow x-pipe turned up this morning, [3 days across the Atlantic, good old Fedex :) ] fitted it, and thought i would share the result.
    It did not [as i was told here] trip the engine check light but it DID trip the "heated" cat bulb on the dash, [similar to the o2 sensor plugs, there's now 2 redundant connectors]. Seems the Jap export models fit these right into the lower cat, the idea is it's like a diesel glowplug, it pre-heats the cat when you turn on the ignition for faster warm up. So all i'm going to do is remove the bulb in the panel.
    Revving it sounds much better, not too noisy, just beefy. Only crappy job was the little pipe from the smog pump to the x-pipe, someone had overtightened the little clamp goodstyle, making it a job to open it out enough to refit it.
    Next job will be to remove the smogpump............................................. O0
