    This has been covered loads in search, and seems the THS is best for fitment due to not needing the cat-back system as its supplied with adapters

    If anyone knows of any that are better please let me know

    Question ive started this for is i cant find any in stock anywhere, of any of the decat pipes lol

    Anyone know anywhere there available, or even work anywhere that could make me one up, want it asap as cars going back to tuners this week for health check etc but due to recent issues my exhaust still has a fair ammount of oil in it

    Thanks for any info

    I'm only looking for decat at the moment, problem with the miltek pipe is that you need the catback also for it to fit

    From what i read on internet decat is illegal and insurance company might get your policy canceled because of that.

    Illegal? Only if emissions are to high of which diesels dont have a limit

    Insurance are informed off all mods so won't have a problem there

    Nooo!! Just get an adaptor from Jetex or somewhere similar :) or get your local exhaust place to make something up.

    I had a Milltek decat on my old MK4 golf and I bought an adaptor from Jetex to mate it to the standard system. In hindsight I would have gone for the THS pipe complete with adaptors.....

    So do they not do CO2 test on diesels then?

    Nope; just a smog / smoke test

    Last car passed the MOT with no problems; the tester even commented on the fact it had a decat and made a decent noise!

    hmm, I'm with greenlight and they dont seem to be happy with that. Need to double check it though as the Decat is very nice upgrade for tdi's turbo and I want it so baad:D.
