Howdey Dudes - Firstly may I say it is wicked, wicked site, lots of info and from who I met at Trax, lots of wonderfull people!!

My question, I have a TME and was wondering if a cat replacement pipe would make much diffrence to the performance/sound of the car? The reason for the question : I noticed that Scorpion make a cat replacement pipe for around £50 which I thought was reasonalble.

Also if I do take the cat out - what diffrence would there be between this new exhaust system and an after market jobbie? Is there going to be a huge increace in BHP or just a couple of extra ponies?

Glad you like you Mak. The first mod I did was a cat pipe, I have a magnex one, about £50.
It is exactly the same fit as the cat, so all you do is undo the 4 bolts and slot it in!

It does make a difference to the car and if you don't like it, or when it comes to MOT time it is a 5 minute job to slot the cat back in.

After the cat pipe, I got a Blitz cat back system which really made a difference. The Blitz also has a removable baffle which makes the system as quite as normal if you run the car with it in.

if you replace the kat with an aftermarket pipe the boost will raise 0.1 to 0.2 bar

about the rest i don t know

you can go to there are some figures about supersprint but be carefull they all want to sell exhausts

a replacement cat pipe is a must have
most people think the car is faster because there is more sound keep that in mind

i drive with:

standard downpipe
cat replacement pipe
standard middle section
hayward and scott backbox

with this setup i am very happy

i tried also the middle section of hayward and scott but it s back in the garage again to much sound for me
i love hp and torque but i don t want a lot of noise so my setup is nice compromise
