Truly great and very helpful. Of course, many parts of the globe we need to leave the cats in to keep the vehicles legal...

Hi Mol,
super review, will probably be my next project...by the way, thanks again for the 'how to do' on the steering comfort kit. I followed that step by step to do mine, was a pleasure having such quality instuctions for that job.

I can only encourage you to continue, I would suggest to give you a steady Topic named something like "M3W tuning? ...ask Mol" or "Mol's quality' how to' " thumbs

Hi Mol, Interesting article hope we get to hear it soon. I see you're heading down to the Dragon again, we are planning to be there next Thursday on our way to Aiken SC for the MOG40 event, on the return trip will be cruising the Snake. Hope we can meet up if you're still in the area.

cheers

I'm really pleased it worked out and you've improved the car Mol. See, don't take any notice of idiots on public forums - keep doing it your own way.

As a matter of interest, as one or two people have commented, once our cars are three years old, they have to have an annual inspection, which includes a strict emissions test. However, once the test is completed, it is very unlikely that the car will get pulled over for another 12 months, and if the owner has substituted a cat. free pipe, no one would know!

Speaking '3 years inspection and emission test' by freeing the pipes but leaving the cat in place would it have in incidence on the CO2 emissions? ...and does it affect the noiselevel ( gain not the more bassy sound)? listening

We were just thinking at the MSU car show; you haven't even seen her car yet!

Technically we have seen it at the last two MSU car shows, but every time you had a massive crowd around you.
