    Hate to be the barer of bad news but read about people on other forums with the same issue, guy I read about ended up buying a new downpipe because of this, then again could always weld it to your existing pipe, load of hassle either way I guess.

    I have the same engine code but in the quattro and have just received the same de-cat pipe as you bought.
    I take it this won't fit either?

    I have that de-cat on my '04 1.9tdi Quattro Avant and it's fine (AVF engine code). My cat was right next to the turbo. I didn't realise there was different types.

    Looking forward to getting it on. Turbo end looks simple but the other is a different story. Proper rusty.

    Fitted mine today, took over an hour angle grinding and dremmeling the rusty rounded bolts off. Will be interested to see the difference!

    Gaz! Have a look at my build thread, got some mid rebuild pics with the decay fitted.

    FYI Mine had the short seperate cat link, jointed by the gearbox to the turbo. Not the longer pipe running down to the hanger.
