    E63 Bi-Turbo Start Up

    Having read more than a few threads on exhaust noise, both on start-up and when running, and having noted the conventional wisdom that on start-up the exhaust by-passes the cats to enable quicker warm-up, I am slightly confused on how it does that. I can't see any means of by-passing the Cat...

    MotoGP - The Racers choice of viewing
