    Default Decat questions

    I'm finally getting my exhaust fitted by Powerflow on Thursday and i'm thinking of having the cat taken out too. From what i've read this won't affect the MOT but will I be left with any warning lights on the dash because of this removal? Also, what effects should I expect to see from this?

    Thanks!

    No dash lights at all and you should see a slighly better pick up. Needs to be combined with a remap to make the most of it

    de-cat on a diesel is all good imo, MOT is soot particle test only, also if you only have a centre section fitted then the noise should be great too....

    Cheers guys! At the risk of sounding dumb, which part is the centre section? Is this before the cat?

    you will have the cat then centre section then back box on any standard 1.9 cdti system, the cat is after the manifold so removal is as easy as pie.......
