muffler delete

  1. Need some advice on some potential future mods

    General E46 Forum
    I have been pretty happy with my little 325i thus far, I have had no major issues or anything that really required that much effort to mend. However, I feel like my little bimmer is missing something. I am supposed to get an exhaust leak repaired this week by my welding buddy. I was gonna ask...

  3. 328xi (n20) Resonator Delete question

    General F30 Sedan/F31 Wagon/F32 Coupe/F33 Cabrio
    I recently did a resonator delete on my 2013 328xi to get a little more tone and sound out of my car. The car sounds great at lower rpms but sounds stock at higher rpms. There was also very very little sound increase. The cold start sounds great now but there is little difference in volume while...

  6. Interior drone - Resonator Upgrade?

    General E46 Forum
    Car: 2003 330ci So about a year ago I went to a shop to have my exhaust done. I had the guy remove the muffler, and just go with straight pipes. It was great because I got the sound I wanted, and there seemed to be very little drone. Only now I realize that there is drone, and a lot of it, when...
  7. First muffler delete w/existing setup questions

    General E46 Forum
    I'm looking into the possibilities for getting the sound I want out of my e46 exhaust. Currently I'm running a Rogue dms, which, for those who don't know, eliminates the center resonator and clamps on right after the first muffler closest to the engine. (Weird setup IMO, but it is how it came)...

  12. (VOE) Vacuum operated exhaust

    E46 Xi Forum
    As of now I am running headers and a muffler delete (with resonators still in place) and I have to say I absolutely love the sound. Especially at high RPMs, it freakin screams. Not to mention how much quicker the car revs and how much harder it pulls in the upper range. :D The one thing I don’t...

  19. X Pipes and Drone

    Driveline, Engine & DME Tuning
    I'd like to preface this by saying that I know what x-pipes ARE, but what would they do on our exhausts? For example: I did the muffler delete (on my steptronic 325) mod a few weeks back a and from 2000-2500 rpm the drone is atrocious. It literally creates a sound pressure in the cabin that...
