Went to Powerhouse Garage to get my new Che manifold fitted and the old precat manifold removed. They did the work in four hours and said they would be more than happy to do the job again for anyone else on this forum, including whether you just want your manifold gutted, and they'd offer a 10% discount on labour charges for everyone on the forum.

The guy I spoke to was a really nice chap called Colin Hillier. His contact number is 01276 25566.

He removed my old manifold, fitted the new one, did a full emissions test and included a print out, together with my old manifold and charged me £157.30 inc VAT.

He said gutting a precat shouldn't take much longer, and providing the job went the same as mine (few niggly bolts shearing etc but nothing major) the charge would be the same, plus the 10% discount.

So if you're in the Surrey area, scared or unable to gut your precats yourself and want a reliable company to do it for you, here's the answer!

Hi Stu - I'm Nicky - we met in Morrison's car park!  

Thanks for the tip-off re the dreaded pre-cats...I've found a reliable mechanic prepared to get them out and he did it a couple of days ago - happens to be the brother of a good friend!

If anyone else wants it done (e.g. Helen whom I followed into Kuoni HQ to warn about the prob), call him - he now knows how to do it and apparently already looks after several car at Kuoni!  He's Mark Jaques ('Jakes') - his company name is Motorcure, is based in Capel, south of Dorking, tel. 01306 712825. Cost to me was 105 plus 31 for gaskets, no VAT. Well worth it!

All seems fine - no added noise - good job I trust him or I'd wonder if he'd done it at all!

Thx,
NickyB

Hooray!! Had my pre-cats out today - what a weight off my mind!

This is for anyone down in the South West...

Whitings Autos took mine out for me, and he said he'd happily do the same for anyone else. Cost me £180 (but that includes an MOT). He'll also do other things too - he's going to paint my calipers and refurbish my wheels too.

His number is 01278 455997 (Bridgwater), and ask for Darren. Say to him Simon sent you and that I'm the guy who he did the first lot on (just to jog his memory...)

For those in Mid-Cheshire, or anyone that wants to travel a bit further...

Mike at Homestead Garage, Gorstage (Near Northwich) will clean out your precats for you. He reckoned he would do it for about £120 plus VAT, mine was a little more as he had to spend time drilling out the manifold bolts...

ALERT!!!  s:shock: :shock: s:shock:  

After I had my tracking/camber sorted at this garage my car developed a squirming issue - I took it back to the garage and he couldn't find what was wrong. After 5 minutes of Spit looking at it he discovered a loose bush nut on the rear toe adjustment arm - bearing this in mind I wouldn't trust this garage to touch my car again!

For those in the Leatherhead area try Tudor Motors in Fetcham (01372 376371) - a little pricey at £169 (inc VAT) but included gasket and two broken studs in the removal.. I gave them a copy of the 'how to'.

Good friendly company.

Big thanks to Nathan @ mrtwos for gutting my pre-cats today. My 04 reg only has 20,000 on the clock and the pre-cats were in good condition, but better safe than sorry so i've done the decent thing and had them gutted.

I'm sure theres a few people on here who want theres done so the cost is £60. I've also painted my manifold cover up whilst it was off, so the engine looks new again!  

Anyway mrtwos contact info:
