    Cheap and reliable wont come in the same line. Neither will quality. Not AAA quality anyway...

    Are you wanting more power?

    If just changing the cat you wont require a remap.

    Shouldn't need a remap with just the DP. A complete system would make a nice difference.

    I think the 207 GTi has both pre-cat and post-cat O2 sensors. If so, removing the catalytic converter (which is very illegal by the way and carries a fine of up to $22,000 if you get caught) without an ECU software edit will cause an error and possibly reduce engine performance.

    Beg to differ Skotty. :} There is no law against reducing 2 cats down to one....as long there is at least one. [most cars have only one ]

    The 207 Gti setup by the O.P. sounds similar to my Colt Ralliart....2 cats....remove one....re- position the 02 sensor ensuring the 02 sensor is AFTER the cat converter....also wise to put a spacer in to avoid CEL'S. Works a treat.
    PS: this is for a complete exhaust system change which would make the 207 really get up and go if done right.

    You might want to check your source on that one JR - any replacement catalytic converters and sensors must be in the same configuration and exhaust flow location as original. Take a look on the EPA website.

    The intent of the rules is to retain the original emissions performance of the system. If you change anything that will impact it, you will need an engineer to provide test results demonstrating that it still meets the design emission standards for CO, CO2, NO2 and HCs. The reality of course is that very few people actually go to this level, but the level of inspection and number of people being caught for violations is on the rise.

    However - back on topic - I think the 207 GTi has just one catalytic converter, but two sensors. The signals from the two sensors will be different before and after the cat - and if the cat is removed, the ECU can tell and will throw a fault. There are ECU edits known as 'second O2 sensor elimination' and also 'interceptor' style boxes to fool the ECU.

    Thank you everyone for your help but I asked the mechanic if I change to downpipe it will trigger the ecu n lights will pop up n lose power. But If I change it with the same catalytic converter I won’t have to re map it or do anything to it.

    I hope this is true.

    i would suggest that you change your O2 sensors first, then the cat. Also you could look at highflow units from the UK which is another option.

    As for the removal of the Cat with a straight down pipe, you can do it but then you will need to buy a couple of these (or similar):
    https://www.deaperformance.com.au/p/...FIX-CAT/OSF180

    One for the top o2 sensor one for the bottom - these have mini cat converters built in so you screw these into your o2 sensor then into your down pipe and happy days. I've used them successfully on many cars (mine and my friends) and they are great. As mentioned it is illegal if you get caught but its a very hard thing to get caught on as you have to go and take a test, in which time you could swap it out with your old cat and be fine.

    This is fairly true in Melbourne, where EPA testing give you notice, and is rather more slack.
    For NSW, the police will escort you direct to a testing centre when they are doing a blitz.

    Just another reason why Melbourne is the superior city , personally id still do it - Your in a Peugeot, what are the chances that you will get pulled over at all.
