    Decat downpipe ? Iridium plugs ?

    Any body know the difference between the decat down pipes ?

    i here there is a 63mm scorpion one
    or
    a 70mm unknown brand one

    which is better the scorpion is a good brand an costs £100
    the unknown brand is larger an costs £125

    Must be something of an advantage between them ?

    They are really just to do with flow characterisitics... The majority on here have ther 63mm which equates to 2.5" in diameter... There are a few members running big power who have opted for the 70mm. which is approximately 3"..... what size exhaust system are you running??..

    Ive got a 3'' custom cat back system, by exhausts uk.
    the coupe needs both de cat parts but i can find the 70mm downpipe on ebay but not a 70mm cat section.

    Only a scorpion 2.5'' main de-cat which aparrently fits tothis 70mm Cybox precat..

    What do you reckon i should do coz i aint ever heard of this cybox but i see you have these parts?

    I wasn't aware that Cybox did a 70mm Precat?... I have previously arranged a Group Buy on Precats with them as I have an exhaust by them... I thought they only did 63mm Precats??.

    I have a 63mm Precat and I am currently running another Group Buy at present.... What are you looking for??

    Ok i looked at the wrong thing just checked, you are indeed correct the cybox precat is not 70mm. 63mm would be the one.

    I just want to know if there is honestly that much difference in the sizes as far as power gained goes? ? ?

    As id never heard of the company cybox i didnt know if it was some rubbish a bloke had made in his shed {putting it harshly} where as scorpion is a v.well known company/brand..

    what ever i want a precat
    So tell me how much are these cybox precats in a group buy? ?

    £89P&P.... My whole exhaust is Cybox... they were formerly known as PECO exhausts... They still come with a Life time Guarantee on the original car of which it was fitted.... Check my sig.... Cybox Systems are good a few people on here have them... If you are interested in the Group Buy... Check this link. http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...up+Buy+Precats

    Are right ok..

    By the looks from your link you are having a hard time with it..
    i think for the minimum saving your getting and the time span id feel better about leaving it an just buying one outright when i want it.

    Im not good at waiting for things and grief..

    Thank you tho
