    Decat usually means de lambda'd which will bring up a fault.

    Depends which engine you have. The early S3 didn't have the post-cat lambda sensor so you don't the engine warning light when you decat. I still have my old decat pipe lying in the garage, didn't really do much for me. I found no real gains between that, 200cell Milltek cats, and standard - just differences in noise.

    Expect a fair amount of popping and banging between gear changes.
