try cybox up near liverpool.

Pete there did my cat back system, he will probably do you one

I want a de-cat but i want somewhere that does a free swap when it comes to the MOT time, you would have to check if he can offer this though if you want it. Hope that helps mate.

Lookin at a few bhp....maybe 4? Some people say it adds 10% but im skeptical about most things like this and how much power they add.

Give pete a call now and see what he says, he isn't a believer of de-cat but he can do it if you want and will go the extra mile, such as stayin open till 9pm when my mate got pulled by the police on the way up there which delayed us greatly, he still stayed and worked on the car till about 10, which is when it was finished.

Also my exhaust was knocking a little and he opened on saturday morning which he doesn't do often and re-did the entire thing.

1992 doesn't need to have a cat as far as i know.

Does a de-cat give the car more of a raspy sound rather than a bassy tone? or does it just amplify the sound it makes now?

The Decat should free up a few gee gees for ya matey, the STD CATS are very resrictive frown

Best keep the original though "K" was the change over year , so if anywhere get funny at MOT time, is easy to swap smile

Basically daz, u can expect a handful of horses. Depending on the rest of the exhaust the noise will be deeper,louder and a rasp will come at mid-high revs. My zorts with cat is bassy loud, and pophappy. Without cat its grumbly 10x louder and a bit bassier but u cant hear the bass over the rasp,oh and it pops and spits like a mofo. Cant ignite tho cos ther is no heat. U cud put ur lips round my pipes and u wud be fine.No place will do free re-fitemnt if ur only gettin that done matey. Give them 600 notes for a full full system inc decat and then they will sort u out.i paid 60 quid ontop of the 400 for my system to get mine de-catted

if you can get away with not having one through MOT's and road side emission tests then you may as well do it daz smile

dont expect to half your 0-60 time or anything after getting it done, but it should give it a little bit more poke so may as well have it done if you can blag that its legal on your car smile
