Hi guys, I really want my car to be able to pop and garages are saying they can't do the remap unless I've had a decat but obviously I can't get a decat because of mot issues?

Just wondering what ways around this there are and if a sports cat would so the job? Would I be able to get the remap with a sports cat or would i need a full decat to get the remap... or would the sports cat make me pop on its own? Idk im complete noob sorry


Edit: also if anybody knows a sports cat that would fit my e81 118i could you please share? Thank you :)

The N43 is an economy-focused engine already known for expensive fuel system issues. Mapping it to put that fuel system under even more stress to make the car sound like Friday night in Kabul is a terrible idea, imho.

Deleting your centre resonator will give a nicer exhaust note as well as mild burbles and pops on lift off with no remap needed, and it’s not going to be so loud that everyone within half a mile will think you’re a pork flute :)
