exhaust question

hi guys well. i added a magnaflow muffler to my car which i made a soundclip of. my setup is 2.5 no cat with the 14815 from magnaflow, my question is should i add a high flow converter from magnaflow as well?

sound clip : YouTube - BMW E30 325I

cat converter :



whats the difer from a high flow to an OEM cat?
will the high flow sound a bit louder than the oem or it will just quite the car?

Nice

I like the sound clip.

Id love to hear it driving at 3/4 throttle low rpm and then wide open at 4500.

When my stock muffler wears out I'll probably get a magnaflow.

Is that one pipe in two out?

Not sure about cats

high flow cats are supposed to add more flow and usually reduce weight.

Ive not read about much advantge to them. Some say weight savings is only advantage.

I have an aftermarket cat that came on the car not sure what kind it is but it works. I think its louder than the OEM versions Ive heard.

Cheers,
