1.9 JTDM Decat pipe

Hi, I'm thinking about fitting a decat pipe in place of the cat from the turbo, car already has a dpf & egr delete and remap.
Any body used one.?

JB & Clogz both have them fitted to their 2.4's, Their units are custom from Alfatune. General consensus is a faster spool up of the turbo and more "whoosh" sound

As Jaba says, the decat pipe improves the exhaust gas flow which helps turbo spool up. This means more power quicker. I'm not sure if/how much it helps for top end torque/power but you definitely notice it. Since I have made myself a monster 3" stainless steel downpipe I have now sold my stainless steel Alfatune decat pipe to Coxy who also reported a noticeable improvement.

The decat pipe in the eBay add is made out of mild steel...and the flanges don't look all that strong... I only strap stainless on my car so not so sure about it...

...Skunking for more boost...because it's just better... 319bhp/523lbft.
