BMW 330ci Magnaflow Exhaust
Me revving my e46 2001 BMW 330ci with Magnaflow Exhaust. 2.25" piping, both resonators removed,
magnaflow x-pipe, and 14" dual in dual out magnaflow muffler. An aggressive
sound that maintains that silky smooth BMW straight 6 note, unlike other Exhausts that sound too raspy or
4-banger-ish. Sorry about the camera noise vibration. There is slight cabin
drone around 2200rpm. If anyone knows of any remedies, feel free to let me
BMW 328i Borla muffler
I recently swapped out my stock bmw muffler on my 2009 328i coupe for a
borla muffler and put together the before and after videos
BMW 325CI e46 Eisenmann race exhaust, ebay headers, no cats, no resonators
A three-video comparison of my 2004 BMW 325CI e46 featuring the Eisenmann
race Exhaust, ebay headers, and both
resonators deleted. Clip 1: full stock. Clip 2: Eisenmann race Exhaust installed, stock headers, rear resonator
deleted. Clip 3: ebay headers installed, middle resonator deleted, no cats.
Note: in the second clip, the Exhaust
wasn't broken in yet (clip was taken 10 mins after install).
This car is extremely loud when I open up on the road. There is a
significant amount of drone, but I plan to install high-flow cats soon
(shop just didn't have enough time to install them). Install performed by
Budget Brake and Muffler in Coquitlam, BC (on Brunette) by Rob and his
team. Excellent shop and bunch of talented and honest guys working there
(highly recommend them if you're in Vancouver). Car is simply too loud
without the cats, and I'm pumping out smelly fumes, but will remedy this
soon. Post O2 sensors couldn't fit, zap-strapped them up (for now). Yes, I
threw a CEL, but doesn't affect performance. Post O2 sensors just monitor
the cats. Can have CEL removed via tuning or may attempt to stretch the
wiring of the sensors to fit past the new cats i install, but might still
throw a 'delay' code due to distance. Or could also try LC-1 solution...
When i put the cats in, it will decrease the performance slightly and will
reduce the sound noticeably. Hopefully it will be at an acceptable level so
I don't go deaf (no wonder this Exhaust is illegal in Germany).
Note: Sorry for the mono audio in clip 2. Didn't plug the mic all the way
in. Still, the audio is better than 99% of the Exhaust clips on youtube which distort the
experience by shoving the camera right up close to the tips... any camera
put close to the tips will make it sound aggressive. I know most people say
that their car sounds deeper/throatier in person when compared to youtube
videos, but in my case it's true, the car is insanely loud, which isn't
captured quite accurately in the video.
Drive safe, respect the road, and respect the style and taste preferences
of other car enthusiasts. Like this vid if you drive a BMW.
