Cobra Non Resonated exhaust?

Hey guys,

Had my FN2 about 9 month now and had so many things to fix on it iv never had chance to actually do anything to it i wanted, so the car has just done 100K and to me the standard exhaust it still has on sounds bland, would this start to sound worse because of the fact its done 100k as its the standard exhaust? I personally thought the car feels a little laggy at times and wondered if it could be down to the old exhaust, Anyway iv been looking at the Cobra Non Resonated Cat Back System and wondered if any of you guys have had this fitted and what you thought of it? Any feedback would be great thanks.

^ This.

Valve clearance and plug change should be done by 75k. Oil change recently? Air filter? Is the car stock?

Exhaust wise iv got a cobra cat back with Res, its pretty nice, fairly deep and sounds mint on cold starts, its quite enough to drive around normally but iv you give it a boot full it gives you a decent bit of noise, iv toyed with the idea of going de res but i think it would be too much on the motorway.

What mileage is the car on? Valve clearance probably worth doing anyway if a long time.

I guess if they are out it would affect power and smoothness?
