If you remove your resonators, it will be noticeably louder. I assume at least 30% louderI installed a Britalmann exhaust several months ago and I was looking for just a little bit more growl. Do you think removing resonators form the custom exhaust would make a clean loud or an over aggressive noisy annoying sound?
JesmalSimple. If you do not wish to spend heaps on an aftermarket muffler, have the front and center resonators removed. Replace the centre resonators with an x-pipe (custom made or supersprint) and you'll notice a change in the exhaust note. If thats not aggressive enough for you, swap the muffler for an Eisenmann Race, Supersprint, Britalmann, or Magnaflow. Some of the members here have tried these and can vouch for the quality and results.
I have the same magnaflow too and love it, you can usually get a used one on ebay or cragislist. I wanted a valid warranty so I got it here. Magnaflow 14814. Also some of the forum sponsors selling magnaflow usually have a sale going on. Either way its a great cat, sounds great, and very easy to install.Jesmal
What is involved in replacing the center resonators with an X-pipe and replacing the mufflers? Is their any cutting of the stock pipes to remove resonators and mufflers, is their any welding to install the x-pipes and mufflers, or do they clamp on? I am looking at Magnaflow part #14814 Mufflers and part #10790 x-pipe.
Also do you know if I would need the 2.25 inch x-pipe? They seem to have 3 sizes a 2.25 inch a 2.5 inch and a 3 inch. I'm assuming I would need the 2.25 inch because the mufflers appear to be 2.25 inch as well.
Is there anyone who already done this to their car? If so can you tell me about the install and if you are happy with the results (sound and power). I have a 2005 645ci vert.
Sorry for all the questions but this is the place to ask!!!:rofl:
Did you replace just the Mufflers or both Mufflers and x pipe? How is it easy to install? You have to cut your old pipes and weld in new!!! From what I understand. And if you remove the resonator and replace it with an x-pipe you need to weld in all new tubing from x-pipe back to mufflers.I have the same magnaflow too and love it, you can usually get a used one on ebay or cragislist.
