**Kpeng: My bastardized exhaust**

So because of headers, I had to retire the infamous "kpeng exhaust". It was so loud it could wake the dead. Luckily, a friend of mine with a turbo E36 M3 left his B&B TriFlo sitting at my house after he got a new setup. I decided to take it and have my trusty local exhaust shop "retrofit" it onto the car. The tips were ugly, so I had them chop and weld the AA tips I had on the "kpeng exhaust". Glasspacks are still in there as resonators.

Then I sold the stock headers for the same price I paid for the new ones, so they ended up being free. Pictures of the underside of my car coming soon. These clips are good, but do the setup no justice as a few local fanatics will attest.

Sounds good, but i will for the life of me never understand the flyby point of view, by the time the exhaust gets to the camera you're done accelerating. The best way to hear an exhaust is stand behind the car (with the camera) and accelerate away from the camera. Hope to hear this soon, sounded good from the other points of view.

Nice! Exhaust tones seems to always differ from real life and video footage.
Can we have some close up pics btw?

Hmmm, I'm not so sure about this version of the exhaust.


Need more clips!

Yes, it's an automatic.

Thanks for the compliments. Like I said in the original post, the videos don't really do it justice. It sounds a lot better in person and really isn't as loud as it sounds. Its not as loud as the previous setup.
