    any good?(sports cat)

    is something like this any good or is it just crap:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ASTRA-ZAFIRA-T...QQcmdZViewItem

    as it sounds a similar spec to most others avalible just without the pipe section, which i know a local place could easily make up for me!

    just a thought as i do want a sports cat but wanna do it properly but i also dont wanna waste the money for the sake of it!

    Total rip off

    They are Magnaflow cats and are about half the price that guy is charging if youy get them direct from Magnaflow.

    Plus the description doesn't quite match the picture, so god knows what you'd actually be getting

    Souns a bit cheap at £89 but if its a 200 cell one then should help a bit, apparantly they don't really make much differenc euntil your around the 250bhp mark, so depends on what the rest of your spec is, might be worht getting something else first.

    According to magnaflow they are 33% better flowing than a standard cat - that's for the one in the picture. But on their website they don't say it's 200cpi

    oh guys thanks for the tips, i was simply just wondering if it was just a slightly cheaper option thats all!

    my spec is nowt special at teh mo with a bastuck zorst and K&N and box mods plugs and power pipe going on soon, but i hope to run a FMIC or 9 litre intercooler and pre cat sports cat and VXR turbo and relavant mapping, so i was just gonna get a sports cat sorted when i get a precat to get it all flowing, but maybe i should just wait till abit more is done!

    They are one on the biggest exhaust makers in the US and have only just 'come over' here. If they can get past the the US emissions laws, which are tougher than here, then they should be.

    I was gonna give them a bell next week to do some asking

    www.magnaflow.com - parent site for more gen
