Did a quick test last night and I am getting SES Codes P1270 and P1456.
I know P1456 is from the missing e-cats. I looked up p1270 and I read MAF.

You can use the old springs to get it to sit low. B4s are Bilstein Touring.
Plus the mounts as shown in the guide.
Unfortunately I will also need rear and front springs as those installed are broken and old.
Any recommendation on a good set that will set the car a lil lower?
So went to the junkyard today for the exhaust system of a 1997 750 but unfortunately the cats were removed. So I end up getting 2 straight pipe and weld.
Sounds like a car now. However black smoke coming from the exhaust. Is that normal? Hope the engine is not burning coolant.
I let the engine run for a while, and not overheating so far.
Now that I have pipes installed I will check the transmission fluid level. the car seem to hesitate at time before moving. Whats the best way to check fluid on these trans?
Here are some pictures.

Pump until it starts dripping. Smoke might just be accumulation in the exhaust and it doesn't look particularly black, the V12 is basically a smog machine when cold, especially one without a cat. Worst case it's the tiny OSV dumping oil into your intake.
Ignore the bit about Lifeguard fluid, just use Valvoline MaxLife.

For those who have deleted their Cats, did you get the white smoke as seen on the picture above?
I did see that much smoke caming out before installing the pipes. I did let the car run for couple minutes but the smoke didnt clear up.
