Images are being processed.

Otherwise final prototype is almost ready.

It should be being fitted to a car with a pre and post independent dyno session with data logging within the next 4-8 weeks.

We have been putting some more thought into the CATTED version and it's very easy to do with the way we have laid out the pipes. However, how effective the CAT is really depends on the manufacturer of the CAT, it's quality and it's functionality levels within this project. If the CEL light appears for 'increased emissions' then you will need to live with a more expensive version for no reason.

The CAT version has to be fully tested in places like California and the US / Canada. The readiness testing and tail pipe testing and sometimes both is something I had a huge amount of experience in when tuning cars all over the world.

So we really need to make sure it's something that works. If the power gain is say compromised with a CAT which really does pass emissions properly then again it's not a product worth developing unless there is a minimum of 20hp gained which is what it takes to notice a power gain on a heavy car like the E60/E63 and especially E64.

I'd be in with Randy as an existing evolve LTH owner that could do a comparison.

I will say that elusive posts like this turn me off a vendor. Get the sponsor thing straight, develop the product, and present it. Having to create a fake account to drum off business is off putting - speaking personally of course.

Why would you want to pay $300-$400 a month as a startup company with no product to sell though? That's not a really smart business model IMO. I would much rather a company post a teaser and spend the time actually developing the product to release it when it's *really* ready. We have more than enough companies trying to peddle crap to us that isn't reliable enough for use (I am that squarely at the OEM as well).
