Decat

Post by LeeH » Sun May 10, 2020 2:51 pm

How loud is the deact pipe? Increase in pops and crackles or too much of that annoying drone?

I presume a remap is mandatory for AF ratio and fault lights?

I’ve heard someone’s straight pipe decat. It was ridiculously loud.

I have a miltek catback and that’s pretty loud, I was considering decat but it’s out of the question.

Personal opinion for me is that it makes it sound tinny & although more pops & bangs it doesn’t sound good to me. Maybe try a sports cat?

Watch a few YouTube vids & see what you think? It’s personal opinion if you ask me & some people like it. Just don’t get rid of the rear box as that’s ear splitting

I had the same problem sounded like a tractor so my exhaust guy installed a resonator just behind the mid pipe and the tractor noise was gone

I’ll give this a miss, sound is perfectly fine for me with the small resonator removed.
