+Modified Exhaust Ideas+
 
I looked under many search criteria's but I could not seem to find a thread where everyone was posting their exhaust set ups with a sound clip all in one thread.

I thought for sure I had seen one before but I asked around and no one else that saw me asking could find it either. Just link it here if you can find it. If not then here's the thread to post your modified exhaust in.

Here is a link to the Muffler Delete thread.
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=745244

PURPOSE OF THREAD:
- To show people how certain exhaust set ups sound.

WHAT TO POST:
- What year and model car you have.
- EX: 1999 323i
- EX: 2001 M3
- What was modified on your exhaust set up. (Please post what is still stock and what has been modified)
- Headers
- Front Muffler
- Resonator
- Rear Muffler
- Size of Exhaust Piping
- If you don't mind please post the price for the certain parts you changed.

Correct me if anything I put down was wrong. Thanks

There is always a controversy on certain names of certain parts on the E46 stock exhaust but let's just use the names that real OEM uses please.

BMW E46 Non M:

Bulge on left is the Front Muffler. Labeled as #1.
Bulge to the right of the Front Muffler is the Resonator.

Can you find those other threads? Because i'm sure there was one also but I can't find it. Yes you can go on youtube if you want but i'm sure this will help out lot's of people once we get more videos posted up :thumbup:

Also there are a lot of people who make threads asking what kind of exhaust set up's they should do. You can just link them this thread from now on :thumbup:

Why do you think it's called a resonator when realoem calls it a muffler? Not trying to be rude, just wondering :hi:

domcreates 08-02-2012 09:53 PM

how do you think a 323i with straight pipes and a super 10 flowmaster muffler would sound? I want to get rid of the airy noise my exhaust makes when i'm not pushing on the accelerator

Grande D 08-03-2012 10:56 AM

Awful.

what would you recommend?

Grande D 08-04-2012 06:27 AM

Anything but a flowmaster? Try an Ikon with the first resonator in place, 2nd resonator delete with an x-pipe in its place.

Maybe try the Euro-Spec muffler with the second res delete? How about a DMS if you want it loud?

Our cars sound awful with straight pipes and a flowmaster is only gunna make it worse.

Arpee 08-11-2012 12:17 PM

What about only 2nd resonator deleted and leave the stock muffler? Will that make a difference in sound? Right now its too quiet... :)

I like the idea of this thread. Nice work Wootry :thumbup: I know there are several exhaust set ups out there, been pondering what to go with. This forum can use some more organization with offical threads that gather all the info that gets asked about constantly.


Hi, I'm Austin, and I approve this Messege. :hi:
