    best value for money decat downpipe for a tdi? not a millitek

    As per title :D not a millitek though £170 is far too much for a little piece of S/S pipe in my books!

    Not sure how safe it is but I heard some people smash the cat out with a hammer.

    Keep us informed on what ever procedure you end up using.

    Smashing the CAT is a fairy stupid thing to do as they are worth £70+ these days.

    Very true, my friend got his stolen from his van.

    Smashing the cat out is all the rage with the Starlet GT crew.
    I wouldn't choose this method myself

    thanks guys, i have contacted a specialist to see how much he would make one up for with a full system! will let you know how much he comes back at. I dont fancy welding a piece of pipe though because i cannot weld or own a welder lol!
