.:: Help Beef Up My Eisenmann Exhaust ::.

Hey guys,
I am currently running :

.AA Headers
.Stock Midpipes with AR-20 Resonator replacing the cats
.Eisenmann Exhaust

The engine sounds sexy being SC, and has a voice of its own. However the exhaust sounds almost stock. I would like to open it up, and get some volume from it. I would like to replace the stock section with straights, or x pipe or similar to avoid purchasing a new system.

What are my options as far as beefing up the current system?

Also what are options as far as an electronic valve to quiet when needed?

1. Replace midpipes/resonator with straights
2.
3.
4.
.
.
.


I have youtubed the X-Pipe valvetronic and not familiar with that system so is that similar to straight pipes in place of mids?

Any help is appreciated.

Taylor.

The car :

I don't know if you'll be able to get much help from us members over here, since most are e9x m3 owners........Unless a previous e46 m3 owner would like to chime in....

Thank you Nate, do you guys carry the section?

I posted on M3Forum guys, but I figured exhaust is exhaust so any gear head would know what to do, e92 or e46...all the same family right?

Yes, one BIG HAPPY family. Although, I'm just dumb, dumb when it comes to the e46.

Lol...I feel you, between $15k on the stereo, $700 on windshield, HRE's, $5000 on seats...I need to cut costs on the exhaust, so hoping to just hack section 1 or 2, or both, in place of straights and hold onto the eisenmann muffler
