    you cant get 4-2-1 manifolds for the 1.4 and 1.6 models, iv got one on my 1.4 but when having a look on ebay etc there isnt a 4-2-1 for the 1.8
    you can get a decat manifold but the design is crap so you wouldnt get any gain, if u did it would be very small!

    also with a decat it will make your car abit louder, with my 4-2-1 n straight through it was crazy loud and super raspy and popped like hell but didnt sound that nice.

    Heres a vid i took with my phone.

    you can get a lexumal one but they cost alot! if i was you i would look at the inlet manifold you can get off ebay for the z18xe...its a rip off of the dibulas one but not sure on gains.

    the ebay decat manifold looks bad but a few people have said its good. i havent got one. was tring to get piper to make one for the z18xe but they havent replied to me for ages so imm guessing they dont want to do it. there are places that can build custom manifolds and they would be cheaper than the lexmaul but they wouls still be around the £600 mark. any way with a decat it will fail the mot
