Hey guys.

I bought my car with a decat pipe fitted. I've found that I only need the cat converter to fit it back to standard, but I'm wondering if I will also need the sensors.

Will I already have sensors if I have a decat installed? Sorry for what is probably a dumb question

What car is it?

It's very rare you would decat a type r without changing the full exhaust manifold which does house both sensors.

Do you have an engine light on? If the lambda sensors are missing, you'll most certainly have a check engine light.
If not the decat probably has lambda sensors.

To revert it back to standard it's a case of bolt on and off you go. However, if it's remapped without a cat, it may run way too rich for the catalytic converter and burn it out within a few thousand miles.

Do you know what make the decat is?

I believe he had a full exhaust system on it and changed it all and left the decat on it as he sold the cat.

I'd buy it off you if you can post
Hey mate. Got it off this morning and it looks pretty much brand new.

Where are you based and I can look at how much postage would be. Would be lookin for 60 plus postage.
