the only way i could see it causing power loss is if the cat was partially blocked. otherwise the flow would surely increase :?

i guess for him it is probably easier to tell people its a power loss than try to explain that it is illegal, bad for the environment, and only has very small power gains, etc, etc

I smashed the guts out of my CAT, only because it was broken and rattled. I have since replaced it, but before I did, there was a power gain, but then, the CAT was stuffed. This is the CAT I have on it now, a modified BMW unit.

Does it stay 2 pipes all the way to the back, or join back up together?

It was brand new, cost me nothing, (was replaced due to transport damage), and it was easy to make the cones for it, slightly fatter than a falcon one, and it does the job.
