Recently I've been doing alot more racing and not so much trails. I agree it is loud but doesnt bother me for her current sunday runs. I can still hear my music through the speakers I have setup. The vband setup is what makes putting the stock quite muffler back on for me easy and takes 5 mins. Originally I wanted the evo shocker but had a hard time telling myself that it was worth the price for me right now. Also I did seem to pick up a lil more power. Proof is by 1/4 to half a car more when racing the other vehicle I usually run against . Some of those vids are also on my youtube vids.
I been wanting to get rid of the huge heavy exhaust since i bought my X3 but didnt want to spend $1000 on an aftermarket exhaust. I been piling up materials for a few months and finally had time to jump on this little project. Started with a Magnaflow (11236) 2.5” stainless steel muffler...
thats a quiet muffler, but it will have a lot more restriction compared to a straight thru type
I am using a 7 in straight thru and its not loud
I installed the factory spark arrestor to keep the fish cops happy
they actually check around here
I just built my 3". It was quick and dirty as I started at the flex section. I'll replace that section with 3" when I get a little time in the near future. I put a bit of a turn down on it after this pic. I'll post up how it actually turned out later tonight when I get home.
