I am planning on buying the JCW when it comes out and I will be heavily modifying it. The problem is I am able to get everything I need except for a California legal catalytic converter. Does anybody have any good suggestions?:D

Why spend all that cash on a JCW only to modify it? I just don't get it.

You might be best asking some specialist place in California?

I have some questions:
1-CARB has some pretty strict laws when it comes to changing out the Catalytic Converter, so how do you know that you need to change it out?
2-The JCW isn't even out yet so how are there parts available or are you just going by what's available for the F56 S?
:confused:

Cat

Ok, so I have found a 3" cat for general use. I want to modify the JCW because I want more hp but with stock JCW look and the suspension/brake upgrades. There are plenty of reasons. Basically my plan is to increase my entire exhaust system in place for a heavily upgraded turbo. I have been talking to a company that custom forges these turbos and they are expecting anywhere between 350-450 hp.

A FWD car with that amount of power will be undriveable, no?

Also, the clutch and gearbox probably won't last very long.

I've seen way higher hp in way funkier fwd cars. Also, the clutch will be a stage 3 clutch and apparently the gearbox is supposed to be able to handle it. I will have two modes for driving; a low boost everyday mode and a high boost track day mode.
