Re: Vinny's Rover 220 GSi Turbo Diary - Cat blocked, throttle issue?

Just fitted my decat and my cat had collapsed and partially blocked the exhaust, the car is now much more as I remember performance wise! :D I have noticed though on full throttle there seems to be a slight hesitation, but if I just let off a little to say 90% throttle car boosts perfectly, any ideas?

I was at Cadwell park last night so a good run out for the car!
