    if he gets sports cat he'll have to trick the 02sensor or he will have light on all the time ! i used 2 have a 2.2 remas centre pipe he wants roadrunner nottingham £60 as for back boxs just a irmscher one i think mine used 2 sound ok wen worm!

    It'll be fine with a sports cat, so there's no need to trick the sensor, as long as the cat retains both OE ones.

    the only off the shelf sports cat section I'm aware of, is http://www.sportcats.co.uk/product_i...1ee4263b511eb5 which IMO is pretty expensive (but top notch quality all the same)

    Cheaper option would be to get a cat from here http://www.nemesisuk.com/magnaflow_w...mancecats.html and then get the OE Cat taken off the standard front pipe and one of those fabricated in

    Then any pipe for a 1.8 or 2.0NA will fit, so the choice is endless

    Hey mate I've got a 2.2 Coupe myself and since fitting the 200-cell sports catt after running it in for 300 odd miles I've had an EML! The second I put my foot down it came on and just about everyone I know with a 2.2 has had the same problem with the EML coming on I am going to get an o2 cheater as I'm sick of having to reset the ECU then it runs for mibbe 300 miles max then the second I put my foot down the EML comes on again I was told the problem is that as the exhauast gasses are passing the 2nd lambda sensor so quick it can't get a correct reading so puts the EML on.

    thanks for all the input i'll pass it on to him. the cat is broke anyway the only reason he was thinking of a sports cat is because vauxhall is so expensive

    As above - Lexmaul Sports cat/manifold fitted for over 18months and never had a light on the dash.

    Fitting a cheater to stop it throwing a light is only going to mask the symptom, rather than address an underlying cause.
