Janspeed Manifold and Sports Cat/De-Cat

Janspeed Manifold - 166.37


Janspeed De-Cat - 127.22

Janspeed Sports Cat - 283.82

The sports cat is almost 160 more expensive although the de-cat gives u more gains

i kno that with the de-cat u can't pass MOT but since its 156 cheaper then is it not worth it to get the de-cat and just replace it for ur yearly MOT? would only cost 10-30 so it would work out cheaper if u don't keep the car for longer than 5 years!?

Or, u always just do it yourself? is the de-cat pipe quite easy to remove and replace?

O yer! Lol! Forgot about that!

In that case, sports cat then!

That means a full sports cat system would cost 710!

Hang on, if its 30 eaxch time you change your exhaust system, then don't forget you'll being doing it before and after the MOT, so that's 60 per year. In 2 and a half years the sports cat has suddenly become the cheaper option
