Wow. That backing video is great, I love the way the car sounds at idle. I gotta get my car to sound that way somehow.


I'd give another thumbs up to HPF, but I'm afraid I'll start sounding like a fanboy.

you should put in a bypass valve with muffler then bypass straight pipe. i think taza's car is like that. i had made a bypass but i was not turbo so mainly for sound here is link. would be great for you turbo cars.

we were gonna do an electronic c utout to the stock muffler but looking at it was very tight and wanted to maintain good ground clearance.

i'd have plenty of room if i slapped in a magnaflow


big brother wanted to use the oem muffler

plus he didnt preorder a 3" cutout, we were gonna use a 4 inch DMH we had chillen around.


In the essence of " i cant wait for this ****" he had me slap it together thinking it would be quiet.

Hello guys. The 4 inch piping is awesome, but it is a little too loud for me when crusing. Wide open throttle sounds really really nice, as well as idle, its just the crusing part of it that we will have to quiet down. Hopefully the "race twister" will quiet it down a bit. Major thumbs up to HPF. Since I had the car on the lift, we were VERY impressessed with the craftmanship in putting together this kit. It always surprises me how solid it is. My meth kit will be arriving soon from HPF, can't wait to install it!

The stg 3 car is definitely no sleeper. That thing sounds mean as hell. I can't wait to see this thing on the pavement.

i really really hate the chrome rims, i want to change that first but im waiting for hpf's rims and bodykit.. depending on if i keep my z4m im gonna strip out the m3. i saw a cf interior kit (not the dash trim) where it replaces all the door panels to cf and the seats too (this one http://www.ca-automotive.co.uk/singl...wX2lkPTg=.html). i want to do that at some point. but i still gotta do suspension and depending on how the car is might change the diff.
