    astra 1.6 16v 2001 (z16xe)

    does anyone know if there is a decat available for this engine??

    the cat sits behind the radiator and is huge with quite a big bore, dont think a custome pipe will be so wide

    thanks

    When I had mine done on that car the company that did the exhaust said they couldn't really do it as it is on the manifold, they could have put a sport cat in along with a stainless steel manifold but that would have cost a fair bit so I didn't bother, dunno if they were just trying to get me to spend money though

    Not that I know of - even so there are two lambdas on your engine - one in infront of the cat (mixture control) and on behind it (cat control), so removing the cat will upset the ECU greatly.

    thats what i was told guys, just confirming. they wanted around £400+ for a sports manifold and needed to br swapped around for MOT purposes which i dont really see the point.

    so what cars do u guys drive?

    thanks for replying

    The only way you could do it is to get the manifold and then have a sports cat fitted in the front pipe and extend the looms on the lambda to suit. But that would be just more expense.

    Mine's a 2.2 btw
