    Remap Help

    Hey guys just enquiring before i go for red dot at endof month. Ive got a gsi and basically got a fmic, enlarged top hat, 2.2 airbox and pre cat and cat back miltek exhaust but with standard cat. Will i gain anything from removing the cat ? I cant really afford a sports cat at the mo and was just thinking of removing the cat to free up the backpressure. Any ideas of power ill be getting aswell please

    You should see a gain removing the cat but they will adjust the map for you not having a cat so fueling will be different when you put sports cat on.

    Have u got a VXR turbo? I got wat u got plus VXR turbo and sport cat and got 264 bhp, so u should get just under that. Get NGK plugs and decent oil too. Mine wasnt done at red dot though.

    No just standard turbo for the minute cant afford vxr turbo right now and im not looking for mental gains so id be happy with 250-260. Do you think its worth taking the cat out then or just leaving it in till i can get a sports cat? Also ive got cossie plugs in at the minute so hope they are ok. And what oil do you recomend ?

    Bullen My set up is Standard Turbo, 2.5" Cybox Precat and Cybox Exhaust from the Main Cat Back I have a 9Ltr SMIC waiting to be fitted before going back to Red.Dot for a tweak... When I had my first Red.dot remap, I made 228bhp 1st run, 224bhp 2nd run and finally 226.3bhp and 230.4ft/lb with just my exhaust this is before I fitted my Precat Decat. I believe I am running around 230/235bhp maybe slighlty more but not much, with my Precat Decat in place... As soon as my SMIC is on, I should see around the 250ish bhp mark.. I hope this gives you some idea. Though Advantageous, you do not necessarily need to run a Sportscat to see gains of 250+bhp but defo remove the 1st Cat.. For power above 260 / 270bhp then I would look at a Sport Cat
    Star Silver SRI Turbo..'Red.Dot Reloaded'..Cybox Precat, Cybox Catback SS Exhaust..K&N Panel Filtered...9Ltr EDS SMIC!!.....
