    Something weird after fitting Milltek cat back

    Well before I fit my Milltek cat back I had standered exhaust and tested what the cat could do on my liquid gauge bhp, g's, temp, boost and then after fitting my Milltek resonated cat back I did it again and my boost went from 12 psi to 15 psi is this normal or something wrong weird to me and gained about 10 bhp as well if not more as I did not open it up as much pleased with it sounds great too

    I want more sound so should I take resonated out

    Hi,
    The gains are probably down to the turbo not being as restricted ,
    You can buy an un resinated section so basicaly its just the cats then a pipe to the back box,
    Sounds better unresinated in my opinion

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    I would guess that the actuator and map are set up for how the car was...
    The less restrictive exhaust will be allowing waste gas to flow easier/ faster through the exhaust, ( guess work )
    Miltek do sell the unresinated section as thats what i bought. Wasnt cheap mind, about £150 i think

    These cars have a boost sensor, and the ECU works to a target pressure. I wouldnt have expected to see any real increase in boost pressure before/after. Perhaps a little overshoot now due to the decreased restriction but the held level should be the same.
