Hi all,

I'm a new member to the forum, with a 05 plate SRi 1.8. Last night I bought a decat manifold, along with a few other toys, hopefully will arrive tomorrow.

I can't find a definite answer to my question (even using the search function here, AND a generic google). I appreciate that it's not an exact science but there is alot of speculation.

Without further ado -
Will the installation of my decat mani give me any errors, make my car slam into limp mode, annoying flashing lights on the dash, ANY problems?
Will I have to fit a dodgy angled lambda sensor boss to avoid these errors?

I'm going to do it regardless, I'm just daring like that ;) but was hoping for an idea of what i'm getting myself into.

For reference, i'm not decatting for power, but sound.

many thanks

Don't know about the 1.8s but with the 2.0T you need to ideally move the sensor out of the direct line of fumes. Usually people use a few washers to move it back.

Iv not had errors on my cars before using decat but know other people have.
