By all accounts it does make a difference as it removes some unneeded restriction but I did mine same time as backbox so hard to quantify.  I think I have one knocking around in the garage if the new

As a few people have messaged me, Scott did take the Decat, my garage is slightly emptier and a charity has received a generous donation.     

I just had a 2bular decat pipe fitted to my Launch Edition yesterday by PJS Lotus. As the Lotus Stage 1 backbox had to come off for a support rod weld repair, I had the third cat removed. I definitely

ive just done mine this weekend...    i have the sport back box already..   noticeable difference (better)   if i didnt have the sports back box already i woud have got the tubular back box with the decat pipe in place , that sounds really good.  (Although £800)  this still keepe the the front two decat  pipes.. i heard this on @m6arks car at the weekend..

 

it straight forward enough but i had to grind off 4 diffuser bolts due to the hex heads rounding off..

I'd say 3rd cat deletion is worth it.  I've been to a couple meet ups and my Evora seemed to sound a bit louder and have more crackles in the overrun than some other cars.  As far as I was aware I had the standard sports exhaust on my car but found out on the weekend when I had my diffuser off that the cat was missing and replaced with a straight pipe.  I guess this is the reason my car sounds different to other NA cars?

3rd cat delete, is literally replacing the CAT converter with a section of pipe with some flanges.  If 2bular don’t have one then I’d just try any local exhaust place.  It’s not rocket science and any exhaust fabricator should be able to make that up.

@EuropaSman looking at your pics made me realise there was something off about my car .... For some wierd reason the clip in NACA ducts on the undertray were on the outside. So fixed tonight again TLF has helpful info it doesn't realise it has 😁

Stage 1 Janspeed exhaust and decat is a great combination for a NA Evora.

This thread has prompted me to consider doing mine. It’s already had the Intake kit on it - so I’ve just got the torch out and had a peek underneath the tray - 3rd cat delete pipe already present :guitar:

I've got two cats that I want to delete........

Oh wait. Wrong topic. That comment should be in the Caturday topic.
