The emission rules here in Norway are quite stringent requiring catalysts,
even though they were not introduced by law until 1988 (I think). The racing
catalyst I installed in my car was an Oberland Mangehald, manufactured in
Germany. This may very well be used in Audi.  It provides extreme low back
pressure (you can actually see through it!). It still fulfils the emission
requirements, how it does it puzzles me, but still. It cost approx. 1500$
here in Norway.
