    Cos the planet is fcked anyway, no amount of cats being removed is going to make the slightest bit of difference.

    1 single Boeing 747 puts out more Co2 in 1 flight than a V8 would in its entire life, catted or not.

    Removing the cork from the exhaust of a Diesel car really isn't going to register on let's save our planet-o-meter.

    Totally agree with you there bud, but if the planet really is knackered, where has all the snow come from???

    So that justifies it all then? Sorry, no, I think you are wrong. So what if a 747 emits pollution - that's not the issue here. The nature of the emissions is vastly different anyway, and is at street level too.

    As an engine emissions specialist, I spend a lot of time, money and effort developing, proving, validating, certifying these products.

    Cats don't affect CO2 emission anyway. It all the cancer causing stuff that is the really nasty stuff when inhaled.


    Picture the scene, young mum pushing new born baby across a street junction behind a car. Car speeds off and baby gets a face (and lungs) full of benzene, sulphuric acid, soluble organic chemicals, CO, soot, unburnt hydro carbons, etc LOVELY......
