Thanks buddy

I had an awesome driving experience today whilst making way to visit one of my bank office branches 100km away from my HQ. It all started with the engine & exhaust note putting a big smile on my face as i cut sick on the open roads. Just when i thought that was it, the strong intake draft topped it off for me with a large dose of euphoria up till i reached my destination and end of day.

Talking Your M3 is looking good with that combo I like it

I guess I will have to be the first to try the Remus Race and GruppeM intake combo Well this will still take a while I have to wait til I come back from Iraq

Guys...

I've enclose the URL for you to view and hear. Unfortunately compressed audio doesn't do the car & system justice but i am sure it is decent. Will be doing another video over the weekend with the car in motion.

URL:


Here is the video i took yesterday morning after warming up the car. Let us know what you think.


Feel free to comment.

Hi guys,

Video is up on youtube and this is the URL for your reference



Btw, does anyone know if there are are any high flow cats and/or test pipes being made? Just curious what difference a test pipe may make although i think i am pretty much done.

Take it easy guys

vorsteiner exh + intake

hey OP, I was looking at exactly the same combo (GruppeM + Vorsteiner ti exh). I am also probably going to do the AAA short shift while I'm at it (since you have to remove the mid-pipes to install it, might as well do in 1 shot).
The setup looks great, and I can't wait to order now.

My question is, do you think you need a chip flash to make it all work well together, or does it seem to be pretty solid without a chip reflash? This was my main issue with my e46 m3, the last 1 year I had it I ended up doing the exhaust and intake etc etc, and never felt like I got it right, figured I needed to get the chip reflashed. Ended up selling (back to stock) before I seriously considered that though. What are your thoughts on this?

Mate...

I reckon you should just go for the short-shifter installation when you fit your exhaust. IMHO, i don't think the chip flash is necessary at this point in time because the response i got from the exhaust alone was noticeable through the rev ranges. The fitting of the intake was the added bonus to free up the car.

Awesome!!! Looks great.

Hopefully, you'll be able to provide us with the exhaust dyno because I haven't seen anyone else that has.
