Supercharger & Exhaust Question

Hey there everyone, first of all my name is Alex, and my dad just bought a white E92 M3 recently, and we were hoping to get a question answered...

So will the Meisterschaft GT2 exhaust be too restrictive for a supercharger kit in general?

Thanks, and I'm happy to join such a great community/family!

Really what matters in the mid pipe section, x-pipe, that it is cat less or at least HFC.

+1. Catalysts are the primary reason, they either need to be removed or replaced for a HFC version.

Nothing is too restrictive for a supercharger kit, you could run the stock exhaust with the higher level supercharger and be doing just fine, now if you want more power, its the primary cats that you need to change!

edit: it seems that you need at least a high flow cats or catless to run the top level supercharger kit, but just for the higher level!
