    Hi everyone, Only me again, with the simple questions. Will I need to change my manifold on my 172 in order to decat? I mean, I have a decat pipe and recently ordered a stealth system, but have no idea whether everything will match up Cheers, Carlos.

    172 Manifold

    Looking at getting a de-cat system set up on my 172 Clio, how do I tell there difference between a 172 and a 182 manifold? Seems difficult to track down a decent priced 172 de-cat pipe but loads of 182 de-cats on ebay etc? So I'm hoping mines has a 182 manifold on it already.
