    Default Treating the vec :)

    WEll it's been a while since the vectors had any alterations and I've recently picked up some bargains, first was the genuine irmscher spoiler that I got off eBay for a staggering £54 delivered and then this week I have got a stainless pre cat decat brand new for £29.95 delivered and tonight I purchased a mij stainless steel system off eBay with twin 4" pipes roughly for £225 I shall be driving to Tipton on Saturday to collect the system so hope to spot a few members up there

    Yeah was quite pleased with them finds especially the spoiler which is currently sitting in my bedroom until I get it painted/fitted lol the mounts need looking at as they cracked them when removing it from the previous car but hopefully the body shop will be able to sort them

    Ah right, just firstly i didnt think they made them off the rack, and secondly i thought the ecu takes a hippy fit when you decat the precats. Unless its a normal decat for the main cat. Oh well either way its cheap!!

    Yeah I know the lambda sensor goes into it if that helps? At least I assume that's what goes in the threaded hole lol
