*****. Disclaimer .*****

- Do not do this if you need to put a cat back on for your MOT.
- You need a cat if your car had one as standard.
- It illegal? (maybe, not to sure)

On the upside, it looks like you have a cat, so to unsuspecting person, youve got one.

0. Disconnect battery.

1. Jack up car and secure on axle stands. Do not work underneath a car supported on just a jack.

2. Remove horseshoe type frame from underneath car.

3. Undo nuts securing downpipe to manifold.

4. Undo u clamp securing downpipe to the rest of the exhaust.

5. Remove downpipe/decat

6. I used a crowbar and hammer, but use some sort of tool to knock out all stuff from inside the cat.

7. Dispose of stuff in cat properly...

8. And in true haynes style, Fitting is reverse of removal.

Job done.

(Edited for moe and spelling)

Going to do this tomorrow to try to cure my lack of power issues, blocked cat was suggested. Does it change the exhaust noise?

Exactly, easy enough to slap abit of pipe in its place.. as the hollow cat sounds tinny and weird
