Eisenmann Race, What Next?

Hi, i have an Eisenmann race which i love, but am no longer using the car as a commuter and now what to enhance the sound (& power). I'm thinking that an x-pipe is the way to go.
Does anyone have experience of adding an x-pipe to the Race?
And should i spend big or do the 900k xpipes do as good a job?
And is the car still road legal?
challenge x-pipe? fabspeed? AA? who else?

Get yourself an x-pipe with High Flow cats! The car would still be legal, but it may throw codes. You can either get a code clearer or you can get a tune to avoid this CEL light popping up.

Fabspeed is the way to go

if u want power and sound go with a full gintani setup...otherwise you could add the gintani x-pipe with the eisenmann but you would be getting the most power

If you want to pair a full xpipe, HFC or catless then pair it with a quieter muffler unless you enjoy a roaring beast all the time (some do).

I was in the same boat as you last year, decided to go with the Fabspeed Highflow Cats and xpipe....never been happier, no codes to this day and a sound that rivals the best of them.

Check the video of my dyno after install.



Talk to Jeremy if you decide to go with it, he will take care of you.
