m3 exhaust question

finally install my m3 exhaust on my 1994 325i
to tell you the truth it feels kind of funny it seems that i have lost power on low rpm and feel a little gain on high rpm at time it almost feeels like something is holding it back from taking off. is this suppose to happen or something is wrong with the exhaust. or should i have also change to m3 catalytic converter. or is it something totally different
what do you guys think
thanks

That's likely to happen with any exhaust that's more open.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

Correct! If you loose too much backpressure you will actually rob power from your engine...it's a balancing act
