▀▄ eas - e9x M3 Akrapovic exhaust systems



The Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust System for BMW M3 consists of flow optimized link pipes with 2 x 100 cpsi sports catalysts and integrated resonators as well as a completely newly developed and now split-end mufflers. This exhaust system, made fully from titanium, reduces the overall weight when compared to the stock system by about 50lb.



Performance
From approximately 2500 rpm on, the power increase is about 24 HP. The torque is nearly constant at 25 ft lbs over the stock. That is the real joy of driving: high speed engine benefits in daily practice due to the torque increase. It improves the agility in the lower rpm-range noticeably. Also, the engine is stronger in the higher rpm-range and the elasticity is improved considerably.

The improvement of acoustics played an important role in the development. The Akrapovic exhaust system amplifies and rectifies the beautiful sound of the 8-cylinder motor, without appearing invasive or having disadvantages in the daily use.

Features
- Titanium end muffler, with TÜV
- 4 Titanium 90mm exhaust tips, with TÜV
- Link pipes (titanium), incl. 100cell Catalysts and Resonators
- 24 HP gain (at 4620RPM)
- 25 ft/lb TQ (at 4890RPM)
- 50lb weight reduction compared to stock exhaust system

Models Supported
2008+ M3 Coupe
2008+ M3 Sedan
2008+ M3 Convertible

Any drone with just the slip on? Trying to unload my Eisenmann Race for something with less, or no drone at all.

It's a softer tone since the exhaust is made out of Titanium instead of stainless steel, so you wont experience any drone. Hopefully there is a member local to you who has this exhaust so you can hear it and experience it, but if not, we can certainly help you out with the muffler.

Just went in the back to check on the Akrapovic exhaust... Lifted up the rear section, and I cannot believe how crazy light this thing is... You've got to feel this system to believe it's lightness, it's crazy.

What does that plug in module do? Is it needed on the full system only or with the slip on as well?

The Akra X-Pipe uses 100Cel catalytic converters, which will trigger a CEL - this module will keep the system happy.
