    Slip on can with standard cat.

    Hi. I just got the tuono v4 2013 with all standard exhaust. Can i just use any slip on cans while remain the original cat? I knew if we used slip on exhaust n remove the cat, we need to use the race ecu. Need your feedback.

    Thank you.

    nope.

    cat is IN the slip on.. you either buy a slip on with a cat in it..i think Akrapovic makes one.. or buy one with out a cat in it.. and put a racemap in it with a laptop and 30$ worth of cables ( to upload the map in the ecu)

    depends on you purpose, do you have the exhaust valve still hooked up with cables ?

    Don’t believe the cat is in the ‘13 exhaust end can. That did happen until much later on - within the last year or so I think.

    If you use a slip-on with a link pipe to remove the cat, you can use the standard ECU if the new slip-on has a bd killer inserted... as per the Akra offering. If you want to run without the bd killer, get a Race or Gabro ECU.

    no you don't have to... it will work fine.. but you're going through a lot of trouble to get this welded in place in order to keep the catalyte converter.. which is useless as they will be no gains to put a welded slip onto the catalyte converter..

    if it's just noise you want, just start by removing the cables on the exhaust valve.. leave the motor actuator plugged in...

    Thank you very much for your information. Yes currently im excited about the sound. Will change to ori akra n remap ecu soon. Already did dyno, a bit rich but still safe.
