Bugeye de-cat advice

Hi all new to the forum and new to impreza's too in general.

Will be positing in the newbie section soon but thought I would get my first question out there!

I have a 2002 bugeye WRX which is all standard except for an uprated Panel filter however I have just bought a straight through centre exhaust section which has the o2 sensor in place ready to connect but obviously removes the centre cat.

My question is will I need a remap if I'm just removing this cat and leaving the cat in the downpipe standard for the moment! I know you will when removing the major cat which is the downpipe but not too sure with just the middle section one.

I am planning a sports cat downpipe and remap in the summer but just wanting to get this centre section on now when it goes for the MOT and service this week!

Any advice would be greatly appriciated!

Thanks!

Glad you confirmed what I was thinking!

I've been looking for an STI up pipe to do at the same time so see if I can find a used one between now and then as don't really want one of those cheap ones from eBay!

As above mate, or you could look at a 100 cell sports cat, which I have on my classic. Had it hand made to fit my system.
Remap will be great once you have it done, contact Duncan on the forum (Dynamix) RaceDynamix | UK | Mobile Subaru Remapping & ECU Tuning
