    Would you buy a second hand sport cat?

    Hi Guys

    Would you guys recommend purchasing a second hand sports cat?

    Just bought one off ebay for a good price (actually it was from a Saxo VTS) but now am wondering if it was such a good idea to buy something like this second hand.

    Any ideas?

    thanks

    shouldnt be any problems with it being second hand. Sports cats generally have a better life than standard cats so it should be fine. When it comes check it for obvious external damage that might have dislodged the internals and tip it so the end is pointing down and no bits of it should fall out.

    I personally used a scaffy bar as my cat...
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    i got my pre-cat and sports cat from a member on here. Can't see the problem with it TBH, never heard stories of a sports cat dying on here before. So should be ok unless its a real old one you have bought.

    Cool thanks,

    Its actually from a saxo vts but it has the same bore size as my 2.0 sri so shouldn't be that much of a problem to get it to fit.

    Gonna get a gt3 centre section with silencer as I have a feeling that with the sports cat, gt3 centre section and rear box it will be load.

    Thanks again
