Not all Khumo are SH*T!!

I was reccommended Khumo by a chap on the Nissan 200sx owners boards I use to have a 300bhp Nissan and when I moved from Goodyear Eagle's which are superb but didnt last long I gave them a try....They were Khumo Ecstas and were absolutly excellent best budget tyre I have ever tried! Almost thought I had F1 eagles on they were that good........so NO not all Khumo are sh*t you need to know which ones to go for excellent budget tyre too! Now Nankang are shit! had 2 NS-2 Nankangs on the front of my nissan and had two blow outs through bulging walls when tyres were just 4 and 5 months old!!

Thanks Tony,

It could almost be taken for standard to be honest nothing silly if you know what I mean! Slightly louder just takes the edge of the Diesel sound....when revving and making progress you couldnt tell it was a diesel sounds like a nice petrol if you can believe that has a little grunt!! lol I think that the CAT removal along with the Milltek makes the exhaust louder than standard, but really does hike the power up after a re-map.

Sorry to hijack the thread but if all you want is twin pipes to fit a 4-mo valance you don't need to change your back box at all.  You can mod your stock back box to have twin stainless tips protruding from the rear instead of the stock turned down pipes.  My car had that done when I bought it and I still have the original box as an example. Just took some photos for another forum member this week-end.  If anyone would like to see how it was done please PM me.
