    Will run fine and give you better throttle response wont bring a light on as theres only one sensor before the cat.

    Had one on mine for about a year now no problems.

    DE-CAT 1.8T AEB

    Oh I'd say so, Turbo spool and throttle response have definately increased... And it sounds more sporty too

    im doing a decat and making my own system from 304 s/s with a sinle rear box, its a 4" round 14" silencer from mij exhausts. im hoping i get the note i want but if not i can always stick one in the middle and again if that sounds pants ill either shorten it and weld back up. or open up and add some e-glass wadding

    so with a decat do you find it pops and burbs more? im looking for backfire/pop on downshift and between gear changes. i get it now and again (cat still on) but for some strange reason i et it so randomly, but i do get a nice deep woosh if i stamp hard between gear change
    but i cant coax the car in to running rich ie foot down lift of lightly then off and down shift.
    in all the time ive owned the car i cant pin point down the exact way to make it pop.
    not that i try all day lon just its mad how sometimes itll do it and sometimes it dont.
    one thin i haven't looked in to is when it pops more or less usin different fuels and octane.
    i think my shell v-power makes it pop more then say standard unleaded sainsburys fuel.

    but i dont notice the difference in mp or performance!
    any way ill et a vids and pics once its all built, im goin to do a little write up too, as in total 2.5" pipe and bends with a single box has cost me £168 posted, but that included s/s wire and tips as i dont have wire and ot no tips left, and the fact the wire is 0.8mm and ive ot 0.6mm for norm mild wire.

    i ot my decat from ebay. cost £90 irrc and its really ood, has two lamda holes inc buns for both, i plan to run stock lamda and wideband for logging.

    Not pussy at all mate, a nice burble is one thing but you don't want to sound like your average idiot who's nailed a cannon on the exhaust of their mothers 1400cc Civic
