Hi there,

As soon as you remove all cats you will need to add CAT - Foolers to keep the ECU happy, or you need to add a chip to fool the ECU, or re-map the ECU...
Else your ECU will light up your check engine light and put you into limp mode.

Hi Rusti,

The plates are specifically for the vigo models, I don't know of then ever being fitted to the SFA of IFS.

They are supposed to stop them getting to the horn, and unplugging the ECU in order to use theri own ECU, but I think it only slows them down.
