Macht Schnell X pipe + MPE?

I really want to open up my exhaust some more, car is running a Stock Mid pipe with a MPE right now, has a ESS 550 kit on it.

I really like the Macht Schnell X pipe but I am worried about how its going to sound... the MPE w/ simply test pipes sounds amazing.. But I don't really want to hack up my stock pipe and looking for alternate options out there!

I tried searching but the most recent thread I found was from 2013

Here is my video of my MPE + Macht Schnell test pipes if you ever would like to go that route! No rasp during cruise and high pitch + a little rasp when you really get on it.



I assume the MS xpipe would create more rasp throughout the whole band?

The Macht Schnell X pipe combined with the MPE will definitely give you a deeper tone. As stated, there may be some rasp, but having heard the MS X pipe with MPE in person I can say it is a very pleasant sound indeed. It really comes down to preference in the end. If you're not too keen on cutting up the stock X pipe for the test pipes, then the MS X pipe would be the way to go. I'll try to find a clip for you in the meantime. Let me know if you've got any questions and I'm happy to help!

Here's a few clips of my MPE paired with MS xpipe. Thank you EAS for an awesome product and amazing customer service!

There's a nice hum during cruising and minimal drone. Overall very satisfied with the combo.

Here's another drive-by video. Can't seem to clear up the video but you get the idea of the combo

Thanks for uploading. I've always been interested in this combo. Now I can I am convinced it isn't for me as it has too much rasp.

It does sound good but it is too fussy for MY taste for DD.

I wonder if resonators would help with the rasp.
