Pro-cats..Advice needed! Pls..!
I listened today of a friends 156 '97 model with 80,000kms on the clock. Even though both cars (my 147+his) have the same engine specs (1.6, 120hp) without any modifications from factory, the sound was DIFFERENT and his motor was more whilling to rev in idle! We opened the bonnet and discovered that his car does not have the 2 pro-cats mine has!...Please quys tell me, is this the main reason I'm loosing such a marvelous alfa sound?.. And if I remove them will I have afterwards any problem with euro emissions or they are applicable for 2010? Can I purchase an aftermarket manifold of the same diameter and design in stead of cutting off the original one and replace the pro-cats with tubes?
Waiting for any suggestion!...
