Hi Guys

How much of a difference does a decat make to a 208 1.6 vti engine (tone, performance and fuel consumption)
Will I have to live with engine management light on?
Also what other mods can I do to increase the torque at low revs-dont want it to be too loud and noisy though

thanks

When you take the catalyst converter out of the exhaust system specnut.

Pretty sure it's legal in the UK so long as the car can pass an emissions test.

As far as the benefits go it won't add an awful lot of power at least compared to easier more straight-forward mods.

I would expect the emissions to go up if the catalytic convertor is removed. This could move a vehicle up to the next tax band, now the road tax is based on what the manufacturer says the emissions are. So removal could still be illegal.

decat is illegal in the uk. All road vehicles must be fit with a cat for emissions and health purposes. However it does sound god damn good with a hollow 4 inch tube from manifold to bumper.


Most companys just put on massive silencer to reduce noise levels enough so that the driver doesn't get pulled
