The Google search you linked to turns up one or two companies making anything approaching decent headers and a lot of promises that weren't kept. Fact is the S65's stock headers leave very little room for improvement without significant added cost as others have mentioned. Sure you can buy plenty of aftermarket headers that actually decrease overall performance and use lesser quality materials; nothing new here.

And you are dead wrong about engine harmonics; so that's 2/2 for you. It might be time for you to stop dumping on a photo thread if you're not only going to be wrong but be antagonistic at the same time.

Headers historically produce big power for 2 reasons

1-OE was a simple manifold/dump system
2-headers (or manifold even worse) had primary cats built in

Either scenario replacing these by a tuned set of regular headers would yield big gains.

Taking a set of OEM headers with no cats leaves no room to be gained on the stock engine. Add 150hp then I am sure there is room for improvement.

Number one reason why I bought my M3. Yup, just to hear this sweet engine. And you know what, I 'm loving every minute of it.

my head is telling me m4 turbo but my heart and ears tell me to keep my s65. what sparked my love for the car was hearing it in person with the numerous of vehicles racing at Circuit of the Americas. the muffled turbo cars are fast but really don't spark any love.
