    Default Pre cat !!

    HI all i have been checking out the site but cannot see anything on pre cats.
    I have a 3.2 on a 2003 plate and the pre cat in the rear manifold has broke loose and is causing a missfire on the rear bank, a new manifold is 600 plus vat at the dealers. Does anyone know if the emmisions may still pass with both pre cats completey removed, as i think it has another conventional cat later in the system..
    Thanks in advance Mark C.

    It's not much help but I know it passes the emissions test the other way around, ie with the two pre-cats in place and the normal cat removed, as there are a few members here that have done it.

    i think the manifolds on the 3.2s are the same as the Vec Bs 2.6.( Both have pre-cats in the manifold) Look on ebay and try ans source 2nd hand ones, will be much cheaper.
