Supersprint catted mids

I found pics of them on the Supersprint website. Anyone have experience with these?

Im really curious as to why these midpipe cats have sensor holes as the factory ones didnt. Where would the sensors come?

This is a good suggestion. SS has only catless down pipes for the 1M so in their web site they advice that anyone who goes with the catless SS dps better choose the catted SS mids for building a full system and for others who prefer to stay with factory dps they better go with catless mids to have better gains and sound. DPs are the only unit they produce a single alternative to factory unit, for the rest they have two alternatives: catless or catted mids (front pipes they call), resonated or non-resonated central pipes, standard TUV certified or non certified "Race" rear exhaust.

So, it makes sense what you say.

Does that mean they somehow extend the factory sensors to route to these midpipe cats? Hmm then no CE light?

That's some amazingly stretchy O2 sensor wire!

It could be as ozinaldo clarified .. but I suppose you can send SS an email to clarify and confirm this.

Indeed, we do not offer catted downpipes. The cats are relocated further downstream along with the 02 bungs for much better performance gains while retaining emissions friendly HJS metal racing catalytic converters.

You need to have the wires extended. We do not provide the extension kits as it is a nightmare to find the proper plugs, however it is a very easy job to extend the wires for a local exhaust shop.

We have a new product in the works for the 1M

HJS cats = win win win...... im pretty certain these Cats offer near Decat levels of performance and still allow you to pay smog tests (well they do in the UK anyway).
very nice stuff from SS as usual!!
