    pre cat and cat-back

    Paid a visit to Prospeed in cardiff to have a cat back made put on my astra coupe turbo and to be fair hes done an awesome job as usual, not too loud when driving around, but when on full throttle sounds awesome!!decided then to see if he would get rid of the precat for me, and he did for a bragain price of £130 so £430 altogether and to be fair she pulls so much better, so bring on the front mount now and the remap
    I can highly reccomend charlie if your in the south wales area and hell always sort you out, even with ic pipework etc

    Your getting the bug . Precat is essential IMO to let turbo spool.

    If you're looking to save money (and don't mind destroying your old pre-cat!) I got one made up at 'Custom Performance' near Lincoln for £80.

    It's a 3" first bend narrowing down to a 2 1/2" second bend using the original flanges on either end. Spot on!!
