Purty shure.


I dunno if I like how the tips are angled up, I think I woulda liked straight tips, but that's just me.

i prefer the tips being strait but it was a clearance issue with the body, we had to angle the right tip up so it would fit square in the bumper, if it was strait it would be touching the body...

revshot, so its usually


headers -> cats -> resonators -> mufflers -> tip?


and you are

headers -> resonators -> no cats -> mufflers -> tip

did I get it right? those two cylinders RIGHT after the resonators are mufflers, then the two cylinders down after the spare tire thing are mufflers again so its 4 like you said?

^^^wow..thats a tight squeez... u dont have much choice on what way to angle them from what he told me.
looks like he did a decent job. i wish i could have been there to just over see what he was doing but seems like he did a pretty nice job.

your cats are still at the shop and believe it or not they are fine.. not plugged at all.. I checked them myself. just a little carboned up but u can still use them if u need. and as far as everyone saying he'll get a ticket for no cats. you're right. but the chances of the cop being a Bimmer expert and knowing that the 2 resonators in front of the first set of mufflers is in fact resonators and not cats (which they look VERY similar to) are minimal. but yes, if a on spot e-test is performed the car will fail for sure..

Not trying to be negative here but wasn't this car supposed to be a track car, and if so what reason would you have for getting nitrous?

Just curious not bashing.

it isn't as easy as making an "S" bend. We have a $10,000 bender that will bend any exhaust diameter pipe in any direction but with his bumper because of the actuall holes for the tips to come out (instead of just cutouts) and the distance battery tray comes down on that side of the body we had to put the tips at that angle. theres no other way around it. he didnt have a choice. unless he cut the bottoms out of the bumper or the bumper was 2 inches lower.
