Re: Front Cat - more power
Hi Alfie - Im not sure wot to do then - the garage that did it - i get most work done there cos i know them and they are independant and a lot cheaper said it should make no difference and they have done it to many cars and it still passed emmisions. Unless a bit of it has been left in and it is rattling about. Piccadilly in Knareborough said the computer said it was the front cat so i really dont no wot to do - £900 for them to fix it. Think I may take it back to original garage and see wot they say, I honestly cat believe the power increase it was dramatic to say the least, the amount of extra torque was incredible.
Dave my cat was just taken off cut open bits taken out and rewelded.
HI G5een ive had it remapped quite a bit ago but the affect of taking the cats off seemed to be a lot more than when it was remapped. The alfa garage told me there was no way it would pass emissions but it does - oh hey ho im at a loss.
Anyway hows it goin Nige - car looks nice - good job on the old polishing looks spot on - iv just got some meguirs polish and wax so will giv that a go some time. Thanks for the advice guys, oh yeah sorry alfie - you say you had the main cat removed, i thought the main ones where the front ones and the rear one was just a small backup one. Alfa reckon the extra strain on the rear one now the fronts have gone will wear it out really quick and it will need replacing - where did you get your sport cat from - cheers
