X pipes

Im still on the fence on getting the AA X pipe or the Fabspeed HFC/resonated Xpipe? Being in Cali, which is the least amount of problems etc. I already have Eiesenman sport exhaust.:

Either options are great systems however, seeing that you are in Cali both system are not California street legal. However, from my own personal experience with past customers the Fabspeed setup seems to be favored !

Here are a few videos for you to check out:

Here's the Challenge X-Pipe we'll be installing on our Supercharged M3 Project:



Needless to say, the construction is very impressive.

On our project, yes - the primaries will be retained.

Once tuning has been finalized with the VF blower - we can then start changing variables as we don't want to skew results.

I've seen that Challenge offers, or is planning on offering a catless alternative. Do you know if they'll be doing a HFC, as well?

We are introducing both the full catless bolt on, and HFC full bolt on in 4-6 weeks. We are doing a good sized production run of all versions right now so they are readily available once ready!
