Hi all,
My first post! Yippee! First off, thanks to you all for some interesting views and suggestions. Have read so much and its all helped me immensely.

Hope this does not make you yawn too much. My question is - I have been told that removing part or all of my cats will increase flow through the exhaust (I guess that's obvious) and therefore have a positive effect on performance. So I am interested in removing some or all of my cats. First, is this a good idea, or am I barking mad and secondly I have heard that a straight through pipe can be bolted in place, where is a good place to obtain the right pipe(s) for my coug?

Driving an unmodified silver 2.5 V6 Cougar - at the mo :)

Looking forward to your replies.

Thanks everyone.

Si

Well I for one intend to keep using it, even if it's only me doing so!:biggrin:

Si, You can loose a cat or 2 but may not pass an MOT due to increased emissions. Some people stick one back on for the Test. Don't know what the bhp increase will be without though.:thumbsup:

Thanks guys.
Will move to the other forum too. Do posts flow between forums or do I need to repost?
