once the de cat is out you can pass an mot if you do the correct things. run the car on 4 star prtrol a few days before. this wont do any damage to the engine but will put a small glaze of soot on the lamda probe. just be sure to give the car a nice kickin after the mot to clear it back off. the blitz de cat pipe can offer as much as 25 bhp with the proper extra modz

all this kind of info will be on my website once its finnished. blitz do offer the best bhp increases for evo's, a full cataloge will be available from me once i'm open again, with parts and fitted prices. give me a shout if you'd like a copy

My FQ300 (but with power u/g) is now de-cat'ed.

Lounder, yup - both at idle, normal speed and "having fun" (wait until the summer, keep your widows open and have a heavy right foot ... or find a tunnel and you'll spot a big difference!)

If it has changed the fuel usage i can't spot it really

MOT (no yet!)

Power ... we'll a friend and I both have power u/g'ed VIII FQ 300's - his gets around 330, mine over 340 so there's a cheap 10 bhp!

Do it, just keep the cat ... it's only £20 to have it put back on...
