I decided to install an extra pair resonators to the Macht Schnell mid pipe to cut down on the noise when driving around town. There was always a 'brap' kind of noise every time I would shift (DCT) driving on local streets. Found a pair of small Aero resonators and it worked. I was going to have a regular exhaust shop weld these on but because the MS mid is so well made I wanted to add to the already great welds on there and remove the one thing that I didn't like about it. I had him replace the connection points that utilized the gaskets with vband clamps. The guy who did the work builds 1/4 mile turbo civics so he spends a lot of time welding and I thought I would share a few pics of the work.

Great looking work. Got any before and after videos of the exhaust change?

I wish I did but I parked it. I can't drive with all this salt on the roads. It's ridiculous. I'm hoping to borrow a gopro and make a vid or two when the weather clears. I wish I could weld like that.

Very good looking! And the V bands are a nice touch, where did you get the weld on flanges and clamps?

I've considered doing something like this. I want to buy the Challenge Sport X pipe which has cats, but is a healthy ~$2k. I have a TIG and thought about buying a much better priced Macht Schnell and welding in a couple of high flow up stream (edit: excuse me, down stream) cats to cut down a little on the rasp and smell.

The welder supplied the clamps. I can't recommend the Macht Schnell midpipe enough to people. Very well made piece for the price.

If you tig just build your own x pipe.

I don't understand why people pay and wait for x pipes. Its very easy to fab up.

Yes, it is, my problem is the last thing I need is another project. It is a pretty involved project to order materials, take off the current, cut measure, TIG, check, adjust fitment, and final install.

I have several highly modified Jeeps that I can take my time on projects. The M3 is my DD (that I purchased with the intention of not modifying lol), I want to keep it down for max of an easy weekend install.
