    on the 328i the lambda sensors are located in the exhaust manifolds (1 in each manifold) so if you decat the car you wont affect them

    so in ur view what is the whole point of decating , what do u see as advantage.
    for me i think torque and improved responisveness plus increased mpg

    responsiveness means power or torque, does'nt?

    for the fume to pass throgh filters of the cat, it is kind of like chocking the engine so when removed the fume can get out quicker and easier thus more power.
