I may buy one for my Daily E46 M3 single turbo, if you are willing to sell.
I am not joking, I am building a single S54.
Thanks Mert and good luck with your build. Let me know if I can help.

Sorry for the delay. I weighed the stock cat back and it weighed in at about 80 lbs. Then I weighed our 4" cat back, with resonator and muffler, at just under 55 lbs. We will be offering the cat back with the resonator as an option, for the crazy guys, we can do the muffler as a option too. Just in case you wanted to turn the quietest exhaust into the loudest

Even without the plug it still seemed pretty quiet, very impressive and nice gains on the dyno. I imagine you'll be seeing 700 rwhp rather quickly now on the stock motor with your upgraded clutch!

You're not seeing things...it does a split.

I have an HPF 4" exhaust straight all the way back.

Then does he mean this is the biggest exhuast for HIS turbo kit? he said this is the biggest exhuast for the m3, last I looked 4 inch is not bigger then 4 inch.

Remember I'm offering this exhaust with options. So it needs to work with different configurations. So if you had a stock M3 and wanted it you would get it with the two into one connection, this also works with my base turbo kit down pipe which is 3.5". If you had a full build with a 4" down pipe it would be just straight 4".

I don't have a lot of time to explain things but I'll stop in my busy day to explain something to someone that clearly doesn't understand what he has on his own car.

Your HPF down pipe starts as a 3" pipe then somewhere under your car it gets merged into a 4". Ever hear the phrase "a chain is as strong as its weakest link"? Now lets use some math.

The area of a 3" pipe is 6.489 in^2, a 4" pipe is 11.787in^2. So you see that you have a terrible choke point coming out of your turbo, don't worry to much about it because you have a terrible choke point in your header before the turbo too

What I offer in my base turbo kit is a 3.5" right out of the turbo which has an area of 8.942 in^2. My two into one connection at the cat back consists of two 2.5" pipes which have a total area of 8.856 in^2. Almost a perfect match.

My upgraded kit will offer a down pipe that starts as 3.5" for 6" of length then turns into 4" all the way out the back. We have something for everyone, but I never sell smoke and mirrors like you have on your car

What would you recommend for an HPF stage 3 m3? I originally had HPF's original 4 inch Stage 3 exhaust but it was too loud. Now I have their stage 1 downpipe going into the BMW OEM midpipe connecting to their HPF Titanium exhaust. It's quieter but not by much. I would like to keep the higher flow of the larger exhaust but need something quieter, like closer to stock. Also, would the car need to be retuned if I now install your exhaust?

What's funny is your doing same thing chrisb did. He couldn't be number one in supra world so he went to the M3 world. Your not number one is supra world so you came to m3 world. You might very well become number one but why you gotta be so kocky. Its annoying.

If I understand you correctly you have the factory connection in the middle of the car. If that is the case this exhaust, the way I have shown it, will bolt right up to your car. As far as retuning, what did you do when you went back to the smaller down pipe, did you re tune it? If not you should be good, but always check after making any modification.

It ain't braggin if its true. Lets do this, why don't you go and find me someone that will race me for money in a 6 speed Supra. Anyone, as long as the car is full weight and has the factory 6 speed and 2jz in it. Fair? 5k? Since I'm not number one, as you say, you should be able to go to all those guys that are quicker then me and tell them to come and take my money, right?

Not defending either side just making one simple point.

The competition will only improve the platform. Feelings are secondary to platform development.

Keep it coming Saad, maxpsi and NickG.
