    Question Is it worth getting a sports cat???

    I no this has been asked many times before,but is it worth getting a sports cat for a 1.6 16v astra mk4.Would it make a noticeable difference to performance eg tourqe and bhp or is it a waste of £259 which online auto sport want for this.Engine mods i have done so far is de-restrict airbox k&n panel filter veccy c airinlet, remmus duplex cat back exhaust with no middle silencer.Please advise would be realy needed thanks guys.

    on a 1.6 no had two from milltek on a twin turbo v8 audi and they did not make any more power but they did make it sound better Throttle response was a bit better that’s about it save your £260 if you ask me spend it on a intake manifold your get more power with that mate

    Cool

    £259????!!!! Ouch!! Ive cut my cat out and welded in a straight through piece of tube. I drive a mk3 1.6 8v and i find that the throttle response was better, it sounded meatier, mid range picked up quite a bit but it lost a little bit down low. Well worth the £20 that gas and material cost me but i would go with a manifold if youve got that much to spend m8!!
