Instead of taking the big loss spend a couple hundred bucks and add some resonators and or 100 cell cats.
If not, nice piece, good luck with exhaust

Sorry to hear, that's a big hit on a brand new exhaust. You could also pair the axle back portion with the stock midpipe. Do a primary cat delete with some test pipes. That is my current setup (innotech) and it sounds pretty good but is not over the top.

No cats, no resondators ... that's surely a seriously loud system! Like others have said, add cats or resos and it will be tamed down.

No offense op but you will have a hard time moving this when Arkym messed up so bad on this forum and on top of that no one has even heard of this exhaust.

Non taken. But Arkym doesn't have this in their possession, I do. Their reputation has to do with the service, not products. You can see the quality of it from the pics. It sounds equivalent to the F1 innotech.
I'm really open to any offer as it just sits in my garage boxed up.

Why does ipe not make it for E93? What's the difference? I'm pretty sure E92/E93 have the same exhaust.

Sorry for going ot op. Sick exhaust, wish there were some sound clips. Bump for you.

The iPE exhaust has a structural bar that holds the two axle back part together... that bar goes across the reinforcement brace of the e93... e92s don't have that...
