Man that thing will be loud! This might seem like a joke but to test the valve effect try cutting down two potatoes and blocking off the middle tips.

When you finished testing you can have baked potatoes for lunch :-)

It looks like it might be hard with the Remus to fit up a valve kit as one of the tips have to be cut right back to fit a valve kit, you would have to check locally.

im going to look around on the valves. i have a xpipe already with my remus race and a set of resonators. im looking to tone it down a little bit do you think a extra set of them will help i hope so because im already comited to the resonators lol

Four resonators are quieter than two. But if you chose a rear exhaust that is obnoxiously loud with a stock midpipe, even an aftermarket midpipe with 4 resonators will still be louder.

i thought that the actual design for the exhaust changes when adding a valve system. one of the tips is usually a straight pipe, this one will have the valve. the other one will have a different design with more restriction than the valved tip hence being quieter when the valved one is closed.

The valves are worth every cent. Mine had an Akra Evo before , and the Gintani Quads have a much quieter sound with valves closed at idle and slightly louder with valves open. Fuel smell was around the same with the quad resonated as the Akra Evo with 100 CPSI HFC. I have a slightly higher power gain than previous set-up and at the track the other day I was pulling away from another M3 with another brand X pipe and rear section, other than that the cars were almost identical, same tune etc.... In my case the results are the best of all tried so far. Whilst sound preferences are subjective I believe this system produces the best sound an M3 can
Hi Dave
I got my system installed and sounds really mean! I'm loving every single bit of it! But my neighbors aren't that happy when I come to warm it up! Now I'm considering installing some valves to it, is it possible to do so ?

Hey guys.

Anyone have a quad resonator x pipe fitted with the stock muffler?

How does it sound at idle, low revs, midrange, high revs and downchange?
