DeCat, Free Flow or Chip

Hi All

I know this has probably been debated in length but dont know about comparisons.
I feel that I might need some additional power to my FT and there is a couple of options.

De-Cat: I have heard that this can significantly increase power, especially since I am now probably losing power after 200k on the same Cat that might be blocked. Do you need a special connector to fool the computer after a decat?
Chip: This is expensive and very debatable if it will damage the engine or not.
Freeflow: Can be expensive, but they say you gain even more power to free flow than a chip can give you.

Obviously I do not want to damage my engine and cost is a major factor.

Any comments?

Do all of the above

No you need to fool the computer by cutting out the cat but go for 76mm exhaust
Go for a chip with Peddle booster

Stekel. Everything is costing alot of money and defnitely worth it. If you want to test a chip you are more than welcome to contact me. We install it in your own car and you can test drive it. We also do 76mm exhausts.
My contact number is in my signature. Or you can contact my cousin Martin 0824903274

Stekel,

Some of that info you have is incorrect.

Where do you stay by the way ?

I agree do a decat, let that baby breath lol... why not spend a little more and free flow it. Noisy boys do a 76mm mandrel bend pipes for R3800. That's from the turbo. Really good value for money.
Doing a decat will give you more power but it's very little you won't feel it much. However you will make the car response better. I've done this on two tunas all do the same. You don't need extra sensors. Just cut and replace with a pipe. I paid R450 each time.

SAC is running a special now for R2500 for a uni-chip and dyno. Thats quiet good value for money.

Do the exhust before the chip. As they can tune the chip to the motor and it's extras.

A free flow will never give you more power than a chip.

Garreth is right. Do exhaust before chip.

You can also get a test unit from Jan with a peddle booster and feel the difference.

Hay that makes two of us, some rain we had the last few nights. Need more tho.... the Benoni branch is the one I was talking about. But for just a Decat I go to Kobus from extreme exhausts in krugersdorp. He asks R450 and takes about 20 min.

If just a decat is done, are there any adjustments required?

No, they just cut it out and replace with a straight pipe.

The Catalytic Converter(CAT) will slowly block up as it takes out "harmful" substances. This in turn causes back pressure and reduces performance. The main function is for emission control. You can replace it with a new CAT but this is very expensive.

So Kobus just hooked me up...or should u say unhooked me :D DeCat R450 20min. I can surely feel the difference but will check when towing next weekend.
FYI: Noiseboys Randburg R9500 for 63mm stainless free flow. Kobus can do the same for R6000. Or if you dont want stainless ist R2000 for mild steel free flow.

Thanks - my FT on 200 000km but goes like a charm. The CAT is probably chock 'n block.
Sounds like a reasonable mod to do.

Lekker man lekker, he is a nice guy... you are the 6th guy I've sent him lol.

Randburg are crazy. They want R1100 to take out a cat. I won't ever support them. They are crazy with prices.

Rather go to noisy boys in benoni. They want R3800 for a mild steel free flow. I've used Kobus for my Isuzu his work is good but I uses crushed bends only. So you paying for a 63mm and on the bends it goes down to 50mm.
Rather go to a place like Noisy Boys Benoni or Power Flow on Republic Rd. They do mandrel bends. So on the bends it stays 63mm. And that's what you want.

Power flow on republic quoted me R3900 for a stainless steel set up. That was 3 month ago in a 63mm. R4300 in 76mm if I recall.
