    1.6 full sports exhaust system help!

    hi all,

    been thinking of getting a new exhaust system for my 1.6 16v,

    i have decided on a silenced centred section and obviously a new back box (dual pipe style like an irmscher one but non-restrictive)

    but the thing im getting confused about is all this talk about pre-cat de-cat, blah blah blah (headache!)

    so am i best a) getting a sports cat, b) getting a de-cat or c) leaving the cat alone and just focusing on the rest of the system....

    i have been recommended to get something from cybox:

    but im just a bit stuck on the cat talk as previously mentioned...

    any help appreciated

    cheers

    just go for a cat back system mate, unless your cat is knackered then you could go for a hoffman sports cat as well, but really on a 1.6 engine a cat back is sufficient

    ok, so by cat back do you mean something like this but with a silenced sentre section and a different backbox? (silencer and backbox different for my personal choice...)

    Pre cat decat can only be done on cars with 2 cats e.g. Z20let etc

    and u won't be able to decat it if you got a z16xe cos the cats on the manifold and you can't get a stainless manifold for a z16, which is wat is needed for a decat

    well as it stands I'll leave the CAT for now. But will get one eventually.
    The only rubbish thing with these manifolds is the 2 sensors, cos the 2nd sensor goes before the Cat in this one, so will have to space it out
