S54 Headers are installed.



Ok, headers are in and I took it out for a spin. Wow what a difference they make. The torque is just insanely different and just comes on about 2500 RPM. Its still a bit rainy here so I didn't really push it but a very noticable difference compared to the stock ones.

A couple of issues are still outstanding. With the longer bolts the heatshield doesn't go on any more. I will need to drill it to accomodate the longer bolts. They are 5cm long compared to 3cm original. It was very painful getting the old ones out using 2 nuts then repeating this to get the new ones in.

Performance wise the throttle is so much more responsive. At first I thought I had sport mode on but then I turned it on and even more throttle response.

I will keep these ones unless they develop some kind of a problem. Combined with the eisenmann race exhaust they are very very loud at WOT. Sounding more like a screaming V8 than an inline 6.

Sure...

I was driving today right after the install and at every single light that I stopped at there was a cop... LOL I counted at least 6 of them coming from the shop to the office the long way.

Nice mod Tom. I can probably imagine how loud it'll sound. I've heard the E46 M3 Club race car driving around Mosport before so you're either as loud as that setup if not close.

Beleive it or not, you can't hear a damn thing inside the car with the windows up. I rode shotgun all the way back from shannonnville and must say it sounds sweet in a raspy-racecar kind of way.
