    Really shouldnt make much difference noise wise and you may pick up a fraction more power, is it worth the hassle come mot time though.

    Just a couple of things, firstly i had the cat removed from my GSi last week and to be honest in my eyes i seem to have lost a bit of power, secondly come MOT time it could become a pain in keep having to replace the cat unless you have pre cats (the GSi has 2 pre cats so the main cat can be removed and will still be fine for the MOT). Thirdly it might just be me again but removing the cat seems to have altered the way the car sounds, full stainless system was fitted the same time as my decat and sounds a bit odd to me.

    de-cat on a diesel is fine mate, not needed on them for MOT as a soot test is all that is done...

    not sure on the power gain's but deffo a free flowing system and a great noise from the turbo spooling when changing gear

    i have always been led to believe that you will gain about 10 - 15 % extra from a free flowing sport's exhaust - air filter combination, if you want more bigger gain's then a re-map afterward's will be a good idea and what with the added air intake - exhaust gas flow the re-map will hopefully produce a little more power than it normaly would.

    and it's only money in the end and you can't take it with you....lol
