There isn't a pre cat, only a cat in the downpipe and imo its not worth removing it. Unless you are intending to go hybrid turbo.

Does it not add much power ? Would you just say a remap then for now untill i do the more expensive work ?
I want to put a bigger turbo on but dont know how much they are and if id need to change other stuff at the same time

De cat is best power for money second to a map of course.

Bigger turbo?? You can get a hybrid turbo set up on your car cost £700+

I'd decat if your going hybrid. Roughly adds 10-12bhp

Stage 1 map roughly £400 will take it up to around the 250bhp mark.

Decat £200 will add around 10bhp

Some induction kits don't work well with the meg. K-tec and ITG are doing kits at the minute boasting around 10bhp gains.
K-tec thought to be around £150-£200
ITG around £250 with a GB

On a budget, remap and nothing else. You'll only be looking at limited (if any) gains with other things.

IMO on a budget leave it standard and put the cash into maintaining the car unlike a lot of people. Maintainance->mods.

Yeah what he said, that's what I did, I did all the brakes,tyres,belts etc before I messed with it.

Short shift is the best cheapest mod.Around 50quid ish depending on fitting etc
