    Hi guy's, this has probably been done to death but I have just purchased my second lcr with a blowing down pipe
    Just wondering if anyone out there could point me in the right direction as I'm not looking at spending big bucks on it. The full exhaust is original and really not keen on de cating it etc. Has anyone had any joy with aftermarket alternatives ‍♂️ cheers Gaz

    Cheap but high quality catless downpipe is from RM motors. Fantastic piece. If you're looking for a catted the best bet would be a stock one from a breaker for cheap!

    Appreciate that bud! I thought that might be the case. My only worry about buying a second hand downpipe would be fitting it and then finding its still blowing from the flexi. I suppose I'm asking the impossible really...

    No it wasn't blowing as far as I'm aware and yes it'll be for sale if its usable.
    I'll let you know as soon as I've checked it over properly.

    Yep it's off the car now but still need to separate it from the cats as the 2 inside nuts are always a bitch to get off but I'll get the gas axe out tomorrow which should do the trick.
    I'll get some pics and send them over then.

    It won’t crackle unless mapped to do so.
    If it’s a 3” downpipe and decat it should do a ‘Pop or Bang’ when changing up a gear at maximum revs.
    Hope that helps.

    3”Custom exhaust, FMIC, Bosh 550’s, BC Coilovers, ARB’s +loads more.
