    Exaust UK De-Cat Pipe.

    As above, does anyone have one of these? And are they any different from Sports Cats i.e power wise?

    Heres the eBay link: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-ASTRA...d=p3286.c0.m14

    They are alot cheaper than the Sports Cats, just wondered if theres any negatives of fitting one?

    Any help appriciated.

    Main negative is that you will almost def fail a MOT due to emmisions

    Other than the MOT failure, will it improve power gains over a sports cat?

    I have a full turbo back system off there's was on the car when I got it the emissions light is on as it's obv detecting the rich mixture. So I'm thinking about getting a sports cat thrown in. It does givesome nice little pops andbangs though!

    I doubt the difference between the two will be that noticable.
    There are lambda spacer you can buy from US ebay which can work, think i may even have one lying about

    Thanks for the info peeps.

    What I mean is, is there much difference in power between this and a sports cat? If no then I will get this as its alot cheaper!
