Welcome Eddie.

With the mods you have got are getting it is important to get it mapped.
This will give you correct fuelling and best performance from the mods.
Is the Scooby pro Chip mappable or just a plug on job like superchip.... If the latter I would bin it and get the car mapped with ECUTEK
If it is mappable once the decat is on get it mapped ASAP.

A roller session is in the region of 50
An ECUTEK remap is about 700 I think. But once you have the licence remapping is a lot cheaper

im glad there was a downpipe discussion. first of all though eddie, try mocom racing. i think i see their maps for 500 ish. i could be wrong though.

and peter, does a decat on the downpipe add anymore noise?

im on decat and non-silenced centre sections and hayward&scott back box... im wondering if the decat on the downpipe gives even more noise?
or maybe a hi-flow cat would give more than i have but less than the full decat?

ive only got my back box silencer so i'll let u know if its any louder!!
i got in touch with hyper sports an racin an they'll do me a ecu, digi boost contoler, up rated fuel pump and live map for 1200 that sound quite good, at least it would if i had that kind of money!! lol, an he said i'd be lookin at about 40-50 brake more, so shud take it into the 300bhp club

well for comparison with regards to loudness, i have the nur spec r exhaust, fully decatted and kakumei tubular headers and up-pipe and the noise is unbelievable. Nice low rumble at under 2.5k but once the turbo starts spinning then it turns into a intimidating bark and then blends into a superbike wail once you get past 3.5 - 4k revs.

fitted my decat!! the noise level is simmilar 2 before on tick over, but when drivin its louder and sounds more menacing, due to only 1 silencer. The turbo spools a lot quicker and seems quite a bit quicker in the mid range than before, but seems to die off more at top end of rev range tho? good mod tho, well worth the 80 notes i paid 4 it!!
