Hi all. As I am a new owner of a fozzy I would like to ask a few questions. First of all, is it worth the effort of decatting, secondly, the drivetrain is slightly whiny, but I would suspect this to be normal, 3rd, if u pull away in second it picks up a vibration felt through the whole car until the engine revd get to like 1500rpm. Thanx in advance.

Decatting is not necessary, but once the cat's fail then it's much cheaper to remove them (or fool the sensors, or erase the codes), than to replace the cats.

On my NA the car did feel slightly more lively without them.

What car you got? Turbo is well worth decatting and tuning for a number of reasons.
N/A not so much.
