    Hi, the cat on 1.8T sport is stating to go. I would like some advise please.

    Audi dealer price: £350.00 + vat

    Milltek High flow Cat: £467.00 incl vat + delivery.

    German & Swedish : about £100 ( but I heard there ****)

    My car has a remap but the exhaust is standard except for the back box which is Scorpion.

    Can I fit the Milltek cat to a standard exhaust!

    Regards,

    Richard

    Hit the **** out of it with a hammer until all the ceramic breaks up and comes out the back. You got yourself a cherry bomb!

    At least thats what I did on my Gsi Astra 16v. Sounded mental.

    I had same problem until i found a web site that was cheap and the cats was about about £75 each my car needed 2 of them as it was a 2.6 quattro but now changed the model to 1.8 t quattro. The web site you need to look at is www.cats4less.co.uk its good quality and you can ring them for advice.:greyrs4:

    And you will get a funny drone from the empty can/cat. Sounds awful. (well it did on my Cav)

    I went aftermarket and she sailed MOT, not bad for £60
