    I had the precat removed from my Astra - was a pig of a job, and didn't really notice any real gains.

    Don't think it would work on your car as it will have a DPF fitted.

    Nah, didn't really notice any increase in performance, just more noise. I wouldn't waste your money. Well worth getting custom exits though as they look great.

    it restricts flow. just taking it out on some cars can relaese a lot of power. but heard theres not much point on a turbo diesel as you need some pressure?? simply chip it for more power.

    All the cat on a diesel does is reduce NOx. It's got **** all to do with CO2. Besides, CO2 emissions make trees grow, so removing your catalysts saves the trees.

    "Remove your cat, save a tree!".
