I'm scared now to run a downpipe without a tune adjusting for the difference in pressure etc it makes.
Absolutely not. Backpressure is not necessary on modern fuel injected engines. The ECU is these cars is extremely smart and will make adjustments to ensure that the air fuel ratio is pretty much always perfect. With the use of BMW's valvetronic technology, the ecu also opens and closes the throttle body to help control boost and it will adjust wastegate position and ignition timing to make the car run exactly how it wants it to. There is no harm in running a catless downpipe without a tune at all, the car will actually run better like that.

We've always offered ceramic coating if the buyer wants it. With the valve open, our exhaust will be straight-through.

We may eventually offer a catted version but nothing official yet.
