Thx, i'm considering downpipes to increase the sound but a bit extra power is always welcome

Will the CEL appear when you run the car hard?

With catless DP CEL is a given. In some very rare cases the CEL might not illuminate.

Power?
Throttle respons?

Thx.
I have installed it along with a Akrapovic evolution system (with the wireless kit)... sounds superb with the valve open and very intense and addicting !!

but when the valve is closed its very smooth and close to stock.

It pulls very strong on mid range with good throttle response.

Evolve

Evolve automotive have a stage 3 tune for the 1M, which includes DP made by Supersprint and an EvolveR tune - no CEL issues.

Of course, that line of coding has been turned off.

1M dumps

I replaced a mid pipe last week on a IM so i did a comparison of dumps looking from the dump outlet as we have many stock cats in stock .
I could not see any difference, the cat component looks the same as a stock 135/335 cat, i reckon the extra power comes from a better tune i guess time will tell.

In which way.. Do we have any hard data to justify this claim.

Does the 1M have less restrictive high flow cats as OEM, as the actual 1M DP's are very similar to the 135i/335i.

I believe that they have different part numbers.

02 Rmfd primary catalytic converter ZYL. 4-6 1 18307980404


135i DP:

Just wanted to know, what was the actual difference in engineering..

Yes, and the 1M DP's flows a lot more air than the typical N54 versions.

Can anyone running catless DP's comment on the smell? I know the turbo motors run cleaner than NA but I just dont know if I'd be able to live with it.

I have been told by several buddies with N54 motors that running no cats smells BAD especially in traffic. I was going to go with cat free DP but after talking to them I am leaving them and just doing post cat 1 section back.

Although the direct injection engines run more efficiently you will still get the unburned hydro carbon smell, especially if you were just sitting in traffic. If you were to keep the oem mid pipes in place, the smell is cut down a bit.
