hi there my hopefully planning to finish off my exhaust system soon( i all ready have a janspeed twin cat back) so i'm looking into getting the manifold and either a sports cat or DE-cat.

what i wanted to ask was i no having a DE-cat my lose a bit of power but how much are we looking at? its for a zed 160 vvc.

only wanting to go down the DE-cat route coz of money really. if there ain't too much bhp loss then i can bare it (just):thumbsup:

IIRC on the 160's you do not lose power wiht a decat its only been said that you lose power decatting a 105

so unless youve seen figures on paper mate dont belive what you hear

ive de catted my 105 and well the low down pull is in a different league now to what it was

wrong way round danny, a decat will lose power on the 160, its to do with the way the vvc develops its power using exhaust scavenging, but like i said, i think that mainly applys to decatting one with the standard manifold. i think with the performance manifold it shouldnt decrease it by anything noticeable, even if anything at all
