    Scorpion pre cat & 2nd de cat

    As title, has anyone got this set up?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ASTRA-COUPE-TU...item35a798e517

    I'm looking to buy it, just want to see if anyone has had any problems with the quality or if the EML comes on.

    Early December but the cars been off the road since Jan. Why do you ask? It's done roughly 2k since the light came on. Ever so strange as it was just sitting on the motorway at 70 when it did

    And no smoke what so ever.

    Because i'm thinking of buying that set up or a 2nd hand courtenay sports cat.

    I don't want to buy a de-cat if it's going to thro the eml on every so often.

    Smoke???? Does a de-cat make the car smoke then?

    Yep made mine smoke aswell full decat and exhaust system only on idle after around 4mins of being left doesnt on driving though

    Its to do with that the turbos relie heavily on back pressure and when decated etc it gets pushed past the turbo seals
