downpipes catless or catted whp difference?

hey guys anyone know what the difference in power i would be getting by going catless over catted? and if i keep my stock exhaust will there be a smell of gas if i go catless downpipes? please let me know ofcourse dynos would be the best but probably nothing comparing that out there thanks guys!

I think people might be encouraging you to SEARCH as its been covered many times. I would say catted will give you 50% of the gain of catted pipes.

We just did some back to back runs on a B5 S4 - setup uses same cats - and we lost 7whp and zero torque with the HFCs. Not the same car, but will give you an idea.

Same cats, not some cats. Meaning the power losses on the 335i should be fairly similar.
