    Sports cat advise

    Hi AOC,

    I am really getting a shift on with getting parts and modding now car so I can remap it Got intercooler, vxr turbo, 2.5 cat back exhaust and I have just put my name down for a group buy on a pre cat, advise I need is for the sports cat, I'm looking at universal ones on ebay but not sure which one to get, does anyone recommend any in particular? Only getting uni one as the Miltek's etc are far to exspensive. Don't care if it has to be welded in as long as it works well and will still pass mot (Oh and will give me the figures when mapped )

    Cheers,

    Mike

    most sport cats offered by tuners are 2.5inch diameter, if you buy a universal weld in one the gains will not be so good as standard pipe work is only 2.25inch diameter. Cobra exhausts do a universal one, they are on ebay too, price is reasonable, I have their full cat on my coupe, cant fault it.

    Bereet PM Welsh_Andy.... His Tripple8 Coupe has a universal sports can on it, he made 280bhp yesterday at Red Dot... Before his remap he was running 262bhp... His Sports cat is obviously doing the trick....

    dam gd cats, made by hoffman gone up now to £105 delivered or u can buy a exhaustsuk one thats bolt on for £275 delivered supposed to be gd as lee made 288bhp with his full miltek and a exhaustsuk bolt on one, but as said he had 2 1/2" miltek, but they must be decent, but depends if u can get a universal one fitted cheaply really if u can u cant beat hoffman imo, they usually mega pricey fo their standard cats, check their website out
