NOT SO MELLOW YELLOW
Abit of a mixed bag on the MV6 front this time around. Firstly, I spotted a couple of exhaust mounts that I had somehow missed when replacing the car’s factory hangers with Powerflex polyurethane parts. I’ve since removed the tired OE items and added what I think is the last of the red mounts that I’ll need to buy. That totals seven polyurethane hangers supporting the back half of the Irmscher twin-exit stainless system. Pleasingly, the pipework now holds firm, even when I pull furiously at its tailpipes. Job done!
Meanwhile, the other end of the MV6 is getting very excited about the six-pot Brembos that are about to be installed. Regular readers will remember that I bought a set of Porsche Cayenne Turbo front stoppers before trial-fitting them with custom carriers, modified Koyo wheel bearing assemblies and 360mm Ultimax slotted discs that EBC lists for the Audi A8 performance VaUXHaLL
Busted Brembo pistons required urgent action
