      The cat may be there but it may of had its guts knocked out. Cheap way of decat. I have 2x Remus sports cats just now and having a friend make me a full decat the same as the enhance performance one without the £160 plus postage price

        It was second hand so don't know how old it is, the cat is in there but the holes are very big unlike my other cat ? I know it's a sports cat but hard to tell witch one. I would have thought it would have the same smell out the back as a normal cat ? It is burning oil a bit so i can smell that (stem seals) just got mot next week and don't want it to fail

          In in the same boat. I think they are 100 cell anyway. Now I think my stem seals have gone. What's your symptoms?

            earlier remus exhaust had 100 cell cat fitted but caused emissions failure so they updated the cat to 300 cell ,only way to tell is that if VXR logo is embossed on the tailpipe then it has a 300 cell cat ,if remus embossed then it has 100 cell cat ,stem seals are common on the Z20LEH engines ,had mines done 3 months ago

              I thought if it has vxr on it it's a genuine of a Nurburgring and if it says Remus that's a of the shelf one. Who did your seals ? Did they leave the head on. I'm not getting much smoke. I just smell it

                I travelled down to WG motorworks in Kent, Warren is a top bloke, will fit them with the head on,I was amazed how quick he did them, there are other places but he's highly recommended, he'll also fit the retainers to stop the problem happening again

                  How much was it and how long does it take. I'm in north Scotland so I'd need to plan a weekend

                    I paid 400 quid in total, takes approx 3-4 hrs, you can wait there and watch how he does it, he don't mind

                        That's not a bad price. I just need to have a proper look to make sure it is the seals and not turbo

                          If it smokes at cold start up and after a long drive with engine switched off then instantly turned back on then it's defo stem seals as I had the same problem and also if engine is using alot of oil, what's your mileage

                              Incorrect info, as I have the Remus with VXR embossed tailpipe, 100 cell cat, been on my car since 2007, fitted at 888, a whole 6months before fitting to the burgs, so early 100 cell remus def had the vxr logo
