Does anybody have any advice on how to make the my car (s2 elise 111s) sound better?
I have a completely standard car and rather and change the standard exhaust I didn't know if there is any little things I could do to make it sound a little more aggressive than the standard notes the car makes?
I love the sound of it already I just wanted a little bit more of a rasp race sound to the exhaust.
Ive read that having a de cat and induction or open air filter would work. (which one would make the bigger difference)
Not bothered about performance gains just the noise it makes, the cars performance is ace as it is to be honest.

Right, this has taken ages to sort out so here's a quick summary:
Buy an AIM MXL Strada dash with Road graphics and a Hondata ECU bridge
Connect a single wire from pin E24 of the Hondata ECU (PRB version) and run it up to the dash area of the car.
Fit AIM oil pressure and oit temp senders in place of current ones.
Call John Shorrocks at JSR and get him to make up a converter loom from the Stack plug to the AIM plug. Get John to come and fit the dash, calibrate the fuel level sender and sort out the indicators etc.
I then mounted the dash in a laser cut aluminium surrond covered in CF vinyl. The dash has lots of warning lights for stuff but it doesn't have handbrake, MIL or fog light. So I got got the surround cut to take these, got LEDs and cut the required masks from a dash from a Renault Clio to give this:
I then modified the plastic binnacle cover by using a heat gun and reshaping it to make the opening slightly bigger.
When fitted, no matter what I did I couldn't get the dash placed so I could see the shift lights at the top AND the warning lights at the bottom. So back to the drawing board.....
Decided the only way was to get the missing 3 dash lights into a small 'pod'. Enlisted the help of a very kind chap on SELOC (mark Hemingway) to turn my crap sketch into a 3D CAD model. Send it away to Shapeways and get this back for £13
Insert 3 LEDs from the back:
Connect wires to connector for loom to connect into Stack plug and mount on top off lower dash cover.
Then add masks again
and bolt everything together in an unmodified binnacle, apart from the metal at the back which needs to be cut away slightly like this
Now I can see the shift lights AND the three warning lights
All works great. Displays any of the data channels form the ECU. USB connects to the dash to make changes to the configuration. Had to compensate the ECU speed signal to deal with the different sizes of wheels on the S2 v the Civic Type R. Now it matched a GPS speed reading exactly.
Short video of the working. The warning lights in the pod look super-bright on this video but in real life they are fine.

After last nights excellent turn out and positive comments, id like to design a sticker.
Discussions last night, Simon came up with a new name FLEM........ Fish's Lotus Enthusiasts Meeting, an expansion on my original idea of FLM.
So I'm after someone to come up with a round sticker like the black MLOC sticker that has FLEM around the top, Fish's Lotus Enthusiasts Meeting around the bottom and a picture of Nemo in the middle. All in black.
Anyone care to make a start?
