Just reading another thread and people are shocked with the price of replacement Cats from BMW. I was too so I did this!

I've just fitted new Cats on my 850csi. I cut the Cats open at the weld on one end and removed/knocked out the Cat insides leaving the Cat cans empty. I then welded (stainless) Magnaflow Freeflow/Race Cats inside the empty cans, they are a snug fit. Then reweld the end back on. You would never know they'd been split open. Exhaust still looks standard. Just passed the MOT. Total cost for both Cats under £300. I'm thinking about doing the same on my M5 Elekta

How many cells are the race cats?

Sounds like an interesting proposition. And I guess the added flow/sound isn't half bad either...

200 cell, you are right sound is interesting as I have also replaced the centre resonator with straight through pipies with a crossover + opened up the back box's and gutted them.
