Cat removal?
#1
So, my 2002 1.9 diesel spat its exhaust off earlier in the week - snapping just on the down pipe. The back box is okay but the downpipe and middle section is junk.
So, my question, with it being a 2002 model (ie the same as the 2001) can I fit a non-catalytic centre pipe rather than the 2002's version? Seems daft to be spending money on a new cat when I don't have to fit one...

You can de-cat, but as of February 2014 your car will fail its MOT if a cat isn't present where one was originally fitted to a vehicle.

If your not in the uk the rules may differ.

I fitted a non cat middle pipe a while ago, it looked as if there was a cat . It had a cat shaped box with nothing in it , Passes MOTs no problems.

I got it from a German firm , took a fortnight or so to come but at £30 odd quid was worth the wait.

Unfortunately I think they have stopped making them now.

There seems to be just the one seller on ebay at the moment whereas there used to be more, buy now just in case ???

38 sold - popular item.

I was going to suggest getting one from a scrappy and smash the guts out, common practice on many vehicles but the above at £31.22 delivered sounds a reasonable price.
