Couple vids of my exhaust

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
My setup

1 - ER catless DP
2 - Resonator delete
3 - Removed packing from muffler


I think it sounds good. It is pretty loud on cold starts and from having the catless DP I get that leaky sound for the first 40 seconds. I think the leaky sound is coming from the bottle neck where the DP meets the exhaust. I will eventually get this modded so there is no bottle neck. I also think there is a slight hollow sound and believe this is contributed to having an empty muffler.

What tips do you have?
How do you remove the muffler packing?

I bought them from Summit Racing
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/svr-tk9001

I had to cut 2 holes in the muffler on each side. The muffler has 3 chambers. The side chambers have the packing in them, not sure if the middle does as well but I was able to remove it from both sides.

Nice work! You do all of that yourself (welding, etc)?

Did you do any adjustments to the stock tailpipes for the 3" tips to fit, other than welding them on?

Wow! I didn't know they stuffed a cat in the muffler to silence it.

I have a great exhaust shop that I work with! The right side tailpipe was cut about 1 1/2" from the muffler, the pipe was swagged and welded back on. This allowed us to adjust the gap between the 2 tips. A little adjustment in the stock muffler hangers (loosening the hanger where it bolts to the body) and we were able to center the tips in the opening.

I ended up filling 2 1/2 5 gallon bucket with the packing. I was quite shocked how much I pulled out.

It's located towards the rear of the car and in front of the rear axle

1 - Looking towards the front - resonator in place

2 - Looking towards the rear - resonator removed

I cut the holes and removed the packing myself = FREE
Tips, holes patched and res delete = $150

So, you feel any difference in performance, maybe loss of torque down low and more gain on the top?

I don't feel any difference, low or high rpm. Nothing seemed to have changed but the sound.
