M140I VRSF/JBShop decat

Post by shahhne » Sat Jun 23, 2018 12:07 pm

Hello,

Owned my m140i lci for around 6 months now, and have decided i want to improve the exhaust sound as i've always felt its been underwhelming in terms of noise. I don't fancy the MPE so much as in my opinion for the cost of just the backbox it doesn't make much of a difference, and i can't decide on a catback system as i prefer the oem tips over any scorpion/milltek/bcs system etc. I think i want to go decat with the oem silencers but im unsure if this will make much of a difference? I've never heard one in person without the cat before and any videos i've found are always with a midpipe or backbox.. has anyone done this themselves and recommends it or has a video of the difference over stock? Is it a worthwhile upgrade?

Decat makes a massive difference and sounds great with a stock exhaust. I'd go decat over resonator delete or MPE personally. I had Mpe my mate had stock exhaust and decat. His sounded far better than mine. So I ended up buying a decat as well.

Thanks for the advice bud. I havent got a JB4 to eliminate the warning light from the decat, is this going to have any negative effects driving round for awhile with it on? Cheers

Hi Tooney,

Do you need 2 of the spacers for a downpipe since its 2 connectors on it? Or just like here on the lower connector?

Will it smoke a catless downpipe with the B58 engine?
