Greetings people, im thinking of de-catting my t5, has anyone done this? and also has there been any problems ie lots of smoke???
ah guess i wont be doing that then!! just as well i made sure first!cheers dude:ILU:dont do it unless you have funds to replace your turbo every year. I see a lot of people decat their cars/vans in the tuning game. Lack of a cat and back pressure will cause the turbo to overspeed on overrun and full boost situations. This will wear out the bearing very quickly and as we all know the T5 turbo is not exactly a strong one to start with. The extra power you would gain from a de-cat is really not worth the pain and expense when things start failing because of it.
