I've just ordered a de-cat pipe, bolts, clamp and gasket as the pipe is rusting away, cat it's self is fine.

So I have three questions T:

How hard is it to change the pipe your self, I'll be working under the van on axle stands, so not ideal for comfort?

Is there anything I should be aware of, ways to make the job easier.

And how much should I expect from the scrappies for a cat.

Thanks in advance.

My hubby has just fitted a decat pipe to ours it was all done within 30 mins, he used axle stands and the worst bit was separating the exhaust, we still have the cat in the garage so dont know what its worth, it has made a lot of difference to the vans power, well worth doing :)

Done mine on axle stands, not ideal, but was ok... Although to be honest I didnt notice much difference in power :*
Got £35 for the cat at the scrappy!

It seems the cat is only worth something if it's an original as the aftermarket ones don't contain much in the way of precious metals, i had a scrappy offer me £1! :eek:

The hardest part of changing the pipe is seperating the two pieces where they slide inside one another.
