    Default Pre-Cat delete on Z16LEX Engine

    All,

    Can anyone Recommend a pre-cat delete pipe and spacer so my EML doesn't show up?
    My car is an 09 so it would be for the Z16LEX engine model!

    Thanks as always guys

    I've got a toyo sports precat on my 09 corsa vxr fitted without a lambda spacer. I think you only need a spacer if you are removing the main cat.

    I had one for the A16 (main cat, but same pipe more or less) and it was sound. Fitting the turbo clamp was tricky but I got there in the end. Some people have had trouble with fitting, and after just putting a Cobra decat on with the same clamp in literally seconds, i can only assume the flange is thicker on the TX pipe.

    If you get a bad one they seem helpful and will swap it (they said they would for me), so personally i would go for it as mine turned out just what i was after at the time.

    As for a spacers, just don't get a straight one, 90 degree with a small hole is what your after: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Decat-Exha...-/331922544526

    If your doing your pipe yourself do some searching on here regarding the clamp fitting, its awkward first time and you have to get the clamp the right way round as it only seals fitted one way.

    Shame you haven't got the A16, you could of had my 2 month old one for £35.

    Are the spacers recommended on a z16 pre cat delete?

    No.

    You only need a 90 degree spacer on the Z16 main cat delete (under the car)

    That makes sense as the lambda port is behind the main cat on the Z16.........................All this A16/Z16 zaust talk is doing my head in, I'm done with it!!!

    If the OP does get a TX one i suggest getting some proper bolts, the ones supplied are gash and i sheared mine so bought stainless.
