Do I NEED to purchase Connecting Pipes??

Hey guys. Im looking to get an Eisenmann Sport exhaust to replace my stock. Do i need to purchase the Eisenmann connecting pipes too with their exhaust or will i be good using the stock pipes?
Does it make a difference?

thanks

No u do not need the connecting pipes as Long as u don't mind cutting up your stock exhaust where it meets with your stock muffler.

I have the eisenmann sport on my car without the connecting pipes. Some people have an issue cutting the stock exhaust.

Eisenmann muffler will join to your stock pipes with a sleeve clamp, just be sure to cut at the right place. If u cut too much then u have to get some custom pipe work done at your local exhaust shop. Ie, measure twice, cut once

It's better to save the headache of messing with the stock exhaust to make it work IMO.

That is true. The connecting pipes will make it a true bolt on. My car came with the eisenmann from previous owner so I guess he didn't wanna splash an extra G for the pipes

How do you like the sound with the stock pipes? have you heard someone with you setup with the eisenmann connecting pipes...did it sound any better?

I would have to measure the piping to verify any differences.

I don't think there are any noticeable differences in either weight or sound in regards to just the connecting pipes. The Eisenmann canister is actually quite heavy and most likely any reduction in total weight over stock is probably fairly low.

there's absolutely no difference in sound versus re-using stock pipes or buying new ones. Either work fine, it's a matter of preference

As talontid stated, there is no difference in sound/power from using OEM vs aftermarket connecting pipes. Aftermarket connecting pipes will allow to keep your OEM system unmodified since the connecting pipes are part of the OEM muffler system.

Axlebacks provide 3 essential changes over OEM systems:

- Weight Savings
- Exhaust Note/Tone
- Tip Design

It's rare power gains are achieved with any axleback system.
