How would de-cating a 16M or Scuderia improve the gear changes? I have watched the videos of Rberg's de-cated Scud with the full Fabspeed setup, and I don't really see any improvement? That is going to be one loud car though.

Who is doing the ECU tuning for you? Would love to see actual 0-60 and 1/4 mile times after the changes, to see what actual acceleration improvements occur when you give the Scuderia or 16M more power.

How is the noise level in the cabin? Can you still drive it through a town without attracting too much unwanted attention?

its very good in the cabin , the increase in db,s is not over the top. with the roof up you notice a slight increase in the noise, roof down well that,s a different story, pure joy is the only way to explain how she sounds, but again not in the way you would have thought. i had the CS Fitted with sport cats and a race box ! that lasted 2 days and the box was removed. but i keep the sports cats. the sound was as perfect as you would have wanted it and i thought i would never get the same / as close to the sound of the CS. however the 16M is now sounding, and this is me going to put my head on a block even better than the CS.

myself and the big lad went for our normal sunday drive, silent valley ( not so silent yesterday) castlewellan then newcastle parked by the sea, tea and a fry and double eggs for max. then tullymore and rathriland and home. i must admit i,m loving the sound of this car. and to make things even better the big lad gets his loud stuff fitted tomorrow.

Excellent. I remember the Scud's engine echoing through the Alpine valleys, didn't think it could get much better than that. Perhaps I was wrong!

Very ineresting!

I've seen some after market exhaust suppliers provide straight pipes to substitute the cats. I have the mildest Capristo on my Spider with stock headers and cats. A de-cat for me would probably be quite exciting sound quality-wise and the sound level still acceptable.

If you have a 430 you would be better off changing the headers with the pre cats in them, and going sport cats, rather than leaving the stock cats on and adding test pipes.
