    Default A16 exhaust advice

    Hi all im looking for a bit of advice i have just bought a 2012 Burg( the second corsa vxr ive had) and im looking for a bit more noise. I understand/think i have a A16 engine and im looking at getting rid of one of the cats but im unsure what cat is the main cat?

    The main cat is the one after the turbo the one at the front you can see is the pre cat which you can remove for a better flowing pipe but you will need to keep the main cat or get a sports cat fitted for MOT

    That's correct, on the Z16 engines they have the pre cat directly after the turbo and then the main cat.
    On the A16 engines it is the main cat directly after the turbo and then the secondary cat

    There will be no issues with the mot as long as the main cat is still in

    I made a comparison video of a Remus 3 piece with the standard cat and with a Cobra sports cat.. the sports cat will sound similar to a decat if it helps you
