It depends what you want I suppose. A cat back would improve the performance a little wouldn't it?
Ami right in thinking that fitting a cat back system wouldn't affect the dpf or anything, nothing mot related?

Have something to contribute?

That's correct,
The cat and dpf are in the same chamber,
So cat back on diesels is dpf back, does improve performance and 2.5" diameter is the ideal size for balance

If it was me just a backbox.
But if you want a little more power get the catback, all depends on price aswel though

Went for catback twin tailpipe. Looks and sounds 5* is quiet but when rev'd has a lovely deep grumble! And looks amazing! Any way how to post a video or picture? Cost double what i wanted to pay but taking it down motorway, definitely seems to pick up a bit quicker!

Very nice. Did you have it so it sat below the bumper or did they cut it a little? I don't know how to do videos or anything on here. Could just put it up on YouTube? Would like to see a video though

Good choice mate,
How much did the system set you back?

Your grumble will get Bette if you blank your egr,
This will also increase mpg by 0.3 and reduce turbo lag on pick up.

Dpf internal removal will help pick up on top end acceleration aswell as zero lag,
I'm not sure on the cost for the fiesta but if your dpf is ceramic then you don't need to remap because it doesn't connect to the car for fluids.
Mine was a 2010 focus and had a ceramic dpf, no remap required for its removal,
Because its just like a catylist in the system no connecting pipes.

I don't know but is there meant to be that much smoke? I thought the dpf stopped that.
Do you have a photo showing it from the back off the car too?

it may be smoky for a while becausethe dpf filter was blowing through a 1.5" pipe before and now has a higher pressure passing through it due to the iincreased diameter of pipe.
The smoke your seeing is most likely the carbon build up clearing from the dpf,
I reckon it will clear off in a couple of weeks.

Its difficult to keep tips clean on a diesel,
But a steam cleaner does a great job of cleaning the tips once a month,
For starters though
Id wax them with autosol to seal them then steam clean at a later date.
Autosol comes in a tube like toothpaste wax on with a cloth,
Let it dry then buff off with a microfibre cloth for best results.

Hi Lenny. Thanks for the advice, will have to find out about the DPF. The system set me back £270 + VAT so £324. Definitely feels nippier and doesn't drone.

Any idea on price of EGR blank?

Also, yes have a picture but not sure how to upload it on here. Will try and pm you it.
