Why cats in headers? That's what the oem M3 headers kinda look like and I think there is a reason that the Euro models were designed different and always made more power. The only reason to have cats in the headers is for improved emissions, thank God in Kansas we don't have to worry about that.

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Now my headers were expensive. Headers are the absolute best place to gain power on a NA bmw, spend the money where it counts. People spend thousands on mufflers and mid pipes that don't do **** but then buy $100 headers and wonder why they fit like crap and make their dash look like a christmas tree.

I know... try tellin my parents that

my ebay headers fit fine, just had to move the muffler up a bit. no big deal. Just a couple bolts. The true sucky part of the install was getting the bolts on the block tight.

$1000 headers will trigger the same exact lights the $51 headers will

Good point, and kansas ftw!

But we should have cats, but were not required to prove that we have them

I guess that is true, I guess what I meant to say is since you got the cheap headers you should use the money you saved and get the software that goes with them to rid the codes and keep the afr's where there supposed to be.

Cats should be moved to section 1, more downstream for better air flow and reduced heat.

Ah yes, I forgot you mentioned today you got the shark. That removed the codes didn't it.

I dont know, I have an O2 sim so I dont have any problems with CEL's or codes or anything. The simulator was sending a slightly off signal, but the shark helped to get it back to normal. but seriously, my car is running better than ever. Even drive-by-wire throttle lag is noticeably less than before. Oh, and I gained 2/3 mpg. 16-19 city. The diesel no longer get the best mileage in the family. (x5d gets 18.6 city)

I want active autowerke headers and cats right after the exhaust flanges on my TSE3. Those magnaflow headers have been a secret until recently. As far as I know we will be the only ones that really market them.

Nice, I always thought I would get a shark when I first picked up my M3. Since then there have been way more "custom" options that have become available. The bimmerworld tune I'm getting is going to be out of this world.

I had heard that sharks would lean the car out a bit, so that would mesh well with my rich running o2 sims. ecu tune was also the last piece missing to my "stage 1" power mods of cai, headers, and tune. Might do a muffler later, but that doesnt really count. Jake was selling some stuff and he said $250 for the shark so I went for it.

Tune should definitely tie it all together. I really like my pullies, those are a cheap power mod.
