      We are migrating! IMPORTANT - Please read   08/07/2017

      Over the past couple of years we've seen an influx of productivity and engagement across our social networking platforms. So much so, that the social realm as you may know, is overtaking the likes of websites and forums. We have been number crunching and feel it is best that we go with the flow and embrace the social media world.
      We have decided to transfer the club over to our already hugely popular Facebook Page and Facebook Group. With over 14k members on our Facebook group alone there is even more engagement with other members from across the world. If you haven't already, now is the time to give our Page a Like and join the Group for discussions.
      The website will soon become a redirect to the Facebook Page and Group. If you have anything of importance posted on the forum, now would be a great time to grab it and post it on our group.

      A further message will be sent before the switch.

Is my cat knackard - 1.2 12v azq engine

Just took my cat off a mot failure I bought recently.  It's got excessive oil useage which I have narrowed down to valve seals/guides. Justin's by the oil running down the back of the exhaust valves.


but I took the cat off and it appears to be completely empty!  Should there be a mesh honeycomb arrangement in there?


you can see straight through it to the top lamda sensor.  I imagine this would be a large contribution to the failed emmisionsji

It appears to be a single skinned box with absolutely nothing in it.    I thought they sometimes burnt out or crumble but not complete vanish
