    Vehicle : Vauxhall Vectra Hatch

    Engine : 1.9 16v 150

    Mileage : Near 100K

    Would have been better to just replace the pipe with a scorpion pipe, Will hardly be the best way for exhaust gasses to escape.

    They are a pain to remove and install aswell if your not taking the front end off.

    have you seen how much the scorpion pipe is. and as for exhaust gasses why is it not the best way? i have no CAT.

    Not on a CDTi, but it would with a scorpion pipe, this way it looks standard to the MOT station, and under new regs this year it makes the world of difference.
