    precat

    is is silly to run a precat decat with the standard cat on my gsi. £300+ seems expensive for a sports cat.

    im hoping to get the precat and fmic done soon then it can go in for a remap.

    No there are plenty of people currently doing this... If by which you mean the 1st Precat Decatted run alongside the main cat..... As mentioned plenty of people on here are doing this.... However some would suggest uprating to a sportscat along with your precat especially if you may be looking for big power in the future...

    100 cell sports cat is right on the limit for MOT's I've been told.

    200 cell sports cat will not bring up and lights or anything and is MOT friendly. Supposidly a sports cat can give up to 10bhp over the standard cat.

    I've had one fitted and it does make a difference, bit of a lower grumble from the exhaust and pulls a little better.

    Precat is definately worth it. When I had mine put on the exhaust note was awesome when on boost and the car pulled so much better.
