    Default Catalytic converter collapse

    I was driving home on the motorway last night and when I pulled off, the car was noticeably quieter and down on power.

    The car wasn't as slow as it is in limp mode, but it's definitely slower than usual.

    I'm fairly sure from those symptoms that the cat has collapsed - there was a horrible cat smell from the exhaust at times over the last few weeks.

    I'm going to replace both the precat and the main cat with decat pipes. Can someone confirm if these ones from eBay are correct?

    I thought it was a good deal...
