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.
