one of the only good things about having a SULEV like mine is that i got another set of cats, where the first mufflers are in regular M54 engines. Going to be buying some headers from BB soon.

The gain on these headers are crazy. My throttle response is way quicker.. And pulls way faster. Burns out like nothing

Because sometimes it doesn't wanna shift into gear cause At that time I was having 1st and 2nd gear misfires but i replaced my coils and that was that, but it needs a breather aswell.

Bro...I used to live in Cali for 22 years....You will fail just do to the simple fact that there is no C.A.R.B number on them...and the restrictions are so tight, that BMW made the M56B25 engines for us....they are a SULEV that is 1/5 that of ULEV....don't recommend it if you don't have the ability to change them out annually to get smogged

sure. Because an engine will only misfire in specific gears.
He's trying to imitate a manual gearbox.


Also, take the bad with the good. My BB experience was horrible:

I'll have to get a video of mine up here sometime so everyone can hate on me.

I have those headers with these pipes... (I added a cross over and 2 AR20s because is was insanely tin cannish, now it is a deep rumble)


Still not even close to my E90 with these...

My Ride: E30 with an S52
Once I installed the headers on my 330Ci, I could notice a significant difference. My exhaust note is absolutely beautiful during wide-open throttle, but at idle, it has a popping noise, like there's a leak somewhere. It's glorious above 3,500 RPM, though.

In-car, windows up to give you an idea. It's pretty loud, but it's stock piping, one resonator removed, and an AC Schnitzer muffler.

Skip to 0:14.

You will fail unless you pay someone to pass it for you
