Just did a 2nd Cat delete

I must say, I love the sound. its not very different, but just a bit louder and deeper. its a good sound. I would recommend this to anyone. I will try and take a video soon, but no guarantees.

this is with the MMW CS muffler and a res delete.

I been debating if I should do this or not. My car already sounds great with the res delete and ikon muffler. If you do make a video, any chance you got any before vidoes to compare?

theres a before video that jfisher did. I am sure he could do another one from outside the car. I will find a camera from a neighbor and make a video.

you should absolutely do this. its not a big increase but a nice addition. also a cold start sounds mean.

with a stock muffler, I highly doubt it. that thing is so quiet. deleting the res does nothing on stock, and this would only increase it a little bit.

I was thinking of doing cats, but I'll just stick to resonators... should be pretty close.

When I did my res and 2nd cat delete on my325xi I did feel something on the butt dyno. Car is lighter ( Obv ), quicker IMO. I feel like challenging more cars, and spirited driving is awesome. I combination with my other mods I do feel quicker. But all is butt dyno.
