How the hell will I make this work?

i have a swapped M52 318ti and im looking to upgrade the exhaust.
preferably Remus, Eissienmann(however you spell it), or Active Autowerkes.

since the body is considerably shorter then a 328IS.
and i garuntee the inlet for the 318ti downpipe would be different.

what should be retrofitted?
you think the 328 pipes would be cut in order to make the length shorter?
or should the pipes be "funneled" into a 318ti system???

i scowered all the forums and couldnt find anything on this....
anyone please?

who makes 323TI exhausts??? (edit found)

im pretty sure it would be cheaper to retrofit one of the above kits.

The entire exhaust up to the muffler is from an S52 M3. From there, we put a 2-1 Y-pipe into an E46 328i muffler. If you just want more noise, get any single-in dual-out muffler and throw it on. But really, don't bother with a cat-back. You will gain nothing on that car with any exhaust mods.

ohh woww.. nm then lolol... the only problem is I failed the etest and so today i took it into bimmersport. waiting for them to tell me what the source of the problem is. chances are it wouldnt be the actual underbelly and probably just a sensor or something.

am excited i dont have to splurge on AA exhaust system!

Dunno. It also has low-mileage cats out of the same M3 too, so that's not the issue. Hopefully they can figure it out.

my first guess was the exhaust system, but now that is cleared up probably a faulty sensor.

i just bimmersport would work a lil faster I miss my car way to much
