                    thanks for all the comment.
                    i seen the one in for sale section but i cant reply yet as im new to the site.
                    i am now offically 'on the hunt' for one ha ha ha
                    also am i rite in thinking the pipe just removes the first cat?as i have read the vxr runs two cats in the system.
                    feel free to shoot me down if i am wrong :P
                    thanks again

                        thanks VXRBats
                        is it worth while decating both cat sections while still running a standard system ?

                          That i'm not too sure of, no doubt you'll get some jumping in momentarily telling you that full de-cat systems are illegal....

                          My opinion would be you'd be better off getting a full turbo back system than full decat on standard exhaust, will cost you a bit more but a far better mod in the long run

                          hope this helps

                            yeah know what you mean mate but cash is always the problem ha ha
                            how much would a full turbo back system includeing both de-cat sections cost? (roughly)
                            thanks

                              Erm, depends if you want second hand or brand new and what make. I've seen second hand systems going for about 4-500 quid on here recently although these usually have a sport cat in which is a better option unless you happen know an MOT tester

                              Brand new you're looking anywhere upto 1200 quid really, there was a guy on here the other day saying he will be getting hold of some scorpion systems and knocking them out for about 600 quid i think it was so may be worth having a chat with him to see what the deal is for a full decat. Think his name was vxrtommy or something like that.

                              EDIT - There you go mate http://www.vxronline.co.uk/forum/sho...exhaust-anyone this is the guy
