Remus Vs Supersprint?

replacing exhaust... looking for direction...

don't wanna go super loud, but still have a good growl,...

And what do you think about ebay cheapy headers? is it worth getting something name brand and new? It's not a dedicated track car,...

anyhow, let me know what you guys think...

Magnaflow, if you want to drown yourself out, Remus had it in my M50 nice mello sound.

Drone as more to do with the design of the system.

AFAIK the common ebay headers and stainless muffler are the same as what Ireland Engineering sells, FWIW.

I've got Raceland headers on my S52. They're Supersprint knockoffs. Maybe pais $150 new. Used the savings to have them ceramic coated. Very happy with them.

My old Magnaflow was great. Was't droney at all. Took it on many trips to the US, never had any issues with buzzing ears or anything afterward. IMO Remus sounds like crap on an M50, sounds like a friggin' Dodge Ram on steroids

Not to mention the welds on the Remus look like they were done by 10 year olds.

10 year olds in China can weld really well, they would have been welding for years at this point.

I have a magnaflow dual in dual out, not to loud and doesn't sound "truckish". Has Remus tips though.

I was lucky enough to see such work being done in the streets of Shanghai this winter. Muffler welding is apparently done with no protective eyewear, at night on the sidewalk, using a stick welder and a pair of channel locks to avoid shock.

The Remus on my E36 sounds nothing at all like my RAM hemi so I have have no idea what you're referring to.

I've had both a Remus and a Supersprint on my E36 M50. The Remus sounds more refined with less burble. The Supersprint made more power/torque/burble. The RAM with a Corsa exhaust makes lots of burble (i.e. Supersprint on steroids). I'm about to slap a 18" case Magnaflow on the E36, but most comments I've heard are that the shorter Magnaflows are way too loud.
