BMW PE Seconondary cat delete

Anyone on here runnin a PE with a secondary cat delete? I know forum member Kamek has it done, nd if anyone around the tristate area has one done preferably close to northern jersey and can meet up with me soon that would be awesome, thinking about getting it done relatively soon just wanna get a good idea of the sound before I pull the trigger. Damm YouTube vids just don't serve the justice.

i have that setup.. i like it. the sound tone or anything doesnt really change by taking out the secondary cats, its just louder. Not really by that much though. I definitely suggest it if you can get a good price. especially since you can sell the cats for a decent amount

Do it, man. There'll be more cabin noise, but the BMW PE is really enhanced. It's deeper, growls more, and more gurgle and pop!

BTW, I'm in Queens -- hit me up if you're ever around and I can def let you hear the exhaust in person.

Watch it in 720P:

I still need to do this.

Although I don't know if I would want any more decel pops.... in the underground parking for work sometimes the pops are really embarassing, more like a backfire like pop. If I do it I may attempt to tone it down with a small bullit muffler downstream, closer to the muffler if space allows.

Meh. I did it at Auto Couture and barely noticed a difference. If I could make the PE louder and still keep the tone I'd be happy. Maybe it's time to gut it...

The catless PE is a must. I have coupled it with a injen intake and I enjoy the both of them throughout the entire RPM range. The exhaust does not drone nor can you hear it much in the cabin. Once you get it have a friend drive your car while you listen on the outside... You'll be very happy and satisfied.

Someone mentioned selling their cat for a decent sum of money? I can't seem to sell mine... Who are the perspective buyers and for how much???

1. Secondary cats, not primary cats.
2. Intakes cause our engines to lose power due to the heat, though it does produce a nice sound.
3. Prospective, not perspective.
