Muffler+Resonator Delete

Hey guys, so I currently have a resonator delete and I am strongly considering doing a muffler delete as well or removing the OEM muffler and putting universal cans with badass tips exactly like this set up http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...52#post9146552
Please give me any insight on this setup in terms of back pressure, hp, torque, etc. Also if you have a reliable place that you'd recommend me doing this set up at in the Los Angeles area. Thank you in advance.

You own a 335 not an M3. Don't post in the M3 section How is the OP being cheap?

I don't think creating a custom exhaust with off-name mufflers is being cheap. It's being smart. Not everyone is inclined to blow $6k on an Akra exhaust.

On an I6, I'd agree. On a V8, not so much. Pretty hard to screw up the sound of the S65.

I like it. Does the secondary cat delete cause a CEL?

No, there is no sensor on the secondary cat, so no issue with CEL.

By oem mod do you mean the straight-through method or perforated pipe method?
