My new mufflers

I have posted an exhaust sound video before, when I removed all 4 resonators and did a step up x-pipe...well since then, I had been working with a muffler manufactor to make me prototype mufflers, here is the finished product:



I will be uploaded a revving video later

PS: I may end up having these manufactured, or I may not...I need to do a more in-depth cost analysis to determine if it would be a profitable product to sell.

Here is a revving video I filmed real quick; these videos were filmed with phones and I don't feel they capture the true sound and powerful feel of the exhaust but I think they give a pretty good idea.

Best sound I've heard thus far from any 6ixer.

Is it just me or does the sound cut out 8 seconds into the second vid?

Like I said they were just recorded using phones.

Anyone feel that they would want to buy this exhaust?

I'm not making any sales, to avoid forum penalty I want to make that perfectly clear, just gauging other 6er enthusiast interest, in this exhaust setup, and as I stated earlier not 100% sure if I'll end uo having them produced, just curious to hear thoughts and opinions.

What are mufflers and x-pipes worth to you personally?

And would your interest be in the laddered x-pipe(pre-fabbed that increases in size in the middle the back down on exit to increase flow and performance) and mufflers? Or just the mufflers?

I included a picture to see how the muffler's tips look.

Now THAT is what I am talking about! I had spoken with my local muffler shop before and they wanted $200 to fabricate an x-pipe for me. It really wasn't worth my time at that point. I love the other threads that swear by the improvement in exhaust note.

Which one did you buy? I see a 2.5" universal on Summit's website, part# 429835.

My local Muffler shop wants $89 to install, one hour of labor. How did you get a $30 install price?

Guys a quick update, here is the x-pipe I used and I'd be having manufactured, notice the step increase in diameter in the center, for sound and flow it makes a difference. I can't sell them yet, but if I had to assume a fair price I would probably do $60 + shipping. If their is interest, please respond, and I will become a forum sponsor and could start selling and shipping within two weeks.

Here is how the setup looks from the rear, I decided on these tips because I wanted an almost OEM BMW performance look.

The mufflers would probably be about $100-120 per muffler +shipping, the tips are welded on, so no added expense of tips.

For whatever reason I can only attach one picture per post, but here is a picture showing how much work is required by a shop to install them.

Most shops would charge about $100-$150 for install on both mufflers and probably $50-$75 on the x-pipe.

It's not problem for a muffler shop. The most likely route would be a sleeve over the two pipes then weld that. You can also butt weld two identical pipes together but it's not as strong and takes some skill.
