smelly cinq!

since i,ve fitted my chip and put my janspeed on the car really smells of fumes,i rang janspeed and asked if the complete system is a de-cat exhaust,they said that it does still have a form of cat,for legal running,and i,ve fitted the mkritch chip,which seems to work fine,but i suspect a richer mixture now,has anyone else noticed there car smells rich after fitting a chip??

Re: smelly cinq!

christ knows whats happenning with it!i was promised my works van to use out of work(but get taxed)then they moved the goalposts by saying that i can,t use it at weekends,so i,ve kept the car until i know whats going on,my mates bought something else so no one is lined up,i fitted the chip/janspeed because there not much use off the car,i,il keep you informed,i haven,t forgotten,just i don,t want to be stuck with no transport
