Thumbs up iPE F1 installed!

Hey folks,

I just swapped out my Akra EVO to an iPE F1. This thing really sounds mean. It is pretty crazy. The decible volume is pretty damn high. It's a bad ass! I'll drive it for a few days and give it some thoughts.

Nice! Do you feel any power difference between the open and closed valves?

yes the sound is quite sick. Anyone know a good way to mount my GoPro in the cabin? I wanna aim at the gauge cluster. It has been raining, haven't got a good chance to drive it.

After 10 days of this exhaust. I gotta say. The sound of this exhaust is so mean and loud. Probably the most aggressive high pitch E9x M3 exhaust available. If you don't want to be loud, turn it off. IMO it is 30 % louder than stock when I turn it off. Just curious other members here with the iPE.

Valve off = more torque but gains less power overall?
Valve on = less torque but gains more power overall?

It has been raining crazy here with messed up traffic so I haven't really drive my car hard enough to see the difference.

f32458...have you gotten a CEL with the iPE? Wondering since they claim no CEL. I was leaning towards the MRT exhaust but you need a tune for the CEL. Even then there is the problem of passing state inspection since the rear oxygen sensors wll not show "ready". If the iPE throws no CEL, and does not need a tune, then that may be the way to go for me.

no CEL so far. I had the Akra EVO for 2 weeks, also no CEL.
