seriously considering a muffler delete. Two questions.

1. will any codes or lights be thrown by doing this.

2. will i still pass emissions according to obd2 port?

Don't.....just don't. There are several reasons why besides the obvious.

1. You will not throw any codes.

2. As a result of #1, if you live in a state that uses OBD2 to determine emissions, you'll be fine.

3. I am in the DC area with a muffler delete and am happy to meet up so you can hear mine

Did mine back in 2005 with the man himself, kpeng. Easily one of the best mods I ever did to my car. To this day... I still love the exhaust note.

People have told me my cat can hear me coming from down the street, and will run to my door in anticipation of me coming through it. The same with my gf's.


But yea... passes emissions, no codes thrown, just a change in sound for the most part.

hate muffler shop guys that love to question why you're doing this..

taken my car/friends cars/family cars to certain muffler shop to do a muffler delete or put an aftermarket muffler on it and they always give the typical "why are u doing this? waste of money/you wont like it" type of thing.. never understood it.

Yea and there job is todo muffler installs. They are more then happy to do them on ricers. But ask what are you thinking about when you want a good exhaust on a nice car.

not bad for a dinan cai and muffler delete. less than 130 bucks and took less than an hour at a local shop. i'm not going to lie, around 5k, she actually has a little more pull. not bad for a 325i

That sounds awesome. Going to see how much the shop will charge if they are to much. I am going to just do this myself.
