Its not that I dont want this or that, just trying to understand whats what and I like to understand my car. appreciated that a professional takes time to share real info on a forum👌🏻👊 my logic was that when placing a new intake your text is true as you indeed have better ingoing airflow, but when removing something that blocks flow like a cat it releases the potential of more airflow through the pipe, but as the engine doesnt know that it is not there anymore, it will spit out exactly the same and you dont benefit from it, but you loose the potential engine damaging oem cats(which a remap could fix.) so for instance one could just take the oem manifolds, weld in a pipe instead of the cat and back on the road for 200 euro’s and than you didn’t get more power, but also lost the risk of damaging the cats/engine to avoid a cell some sell these lambda blockers which make the ecu think there still is a cat. I owned 2 Ariel atoms supercharged and decatted both, which is factory supported and actually gained a little top end power and on one it lost a little low end, other one didn’t. dont get me wrong here, I’ll probably drive stock and than opt for 475 komotec kit or sell the car, but I know a lot of guys just want to get rid of the manifolds only and dont want to pay for sportcats, y-pipes, remaps etc. Komotec kit works well and is a total solution with Remap, Airbox and Exhaust. However I would suggest the KT exhaust system is probably not the best system to have. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
