Hi,



I had some work done on my GT-R 33 V-spec a few weeks back and one of the items fitted was a De-cat pipe.. Since having the De-cat pipe fitted I had noticed a slight rattle coming from the inside of the exhaust at around 2000rpm, I thought it may have been a loose baffle. Driving it the otherday I put my foot down and heard a pop, then what sounded like a large stone getting flicked up under the wheel arch, then my car became very noisey, like the exhaust was blowing.. I thought it had spat a baffle out..:p :p

After closer inspection I have noticed that on the de-cat pipe there are two stubs, one of them has what looks like a lambda/oxygen sensor plugged into it and the other one err….. has nothing! Just a hole like the neck of a wine bottle… I’m not sure if there was or needs to be a sensor in there too but there isn’t now.. :rolleyes: :bawling:

Should this stub having a blanking nut or some kind of sensor in it? It is the stub in the middle of the de-cat pipe.

Thanks

Gary

My decat from Abbey has two bosses on it, one for the temperature sensor as you mention and the other has a large blanking bung in it. This port is used for mapping purpose by a tuner I believe. Sounds like the bung has worked loose fallen out and caught your back wheel. Think you just need a new bung, would imagine Abbey will help you out. Would help if you knew the thread detail.

Cheers mate, it was an Abbey De-cat pipe. So thank god it was just a bung and not a sensor that had worked it's way loose and smashed itself to bit on the ground.. I'll sorce a bung and hope that the thread hasn't been damaged..

Or I could use a wind cork:rolleyes:
