Roll call: ESS exhaust owners

I just love the tone of this exhaust. I started with the axle back but then converted to the HFC full system. It's definitely not the loudest out there. Just the right volume IMHO. I just wanted to see how many others out there have this exhaust (since other brands like Akra are much more popular). Mine and one other here in Phoenix were the first 2 e90s sold. Any others out there? From what I understand, it's the only full system out there that won't trigger the CEL. Mine still hasn't come on.

Any vids of before and after X pipe was installed? Did you notice much of a power gain by going with the HFC x-pipe? How many miles have you put on the x-pipe with HFC now?

It's hard to find videos to get at least a sense of how it sounds. But I have heard this is a top contender next to Dinan for least drone and good sound.

Is it listed in the classifieds? I'd be interested but I'm learning that my location may make it uneconomical to snag a used exhaust from US.

There are several videos in my original thread.

I have the full system. Not too loud, sounds bassy at first but then turns a little metallic. No CEL so far which is a huge plus for me. Probably the only full exhaust in market with no CEL.

I like this system overall. I do want to try a valved system so I can go really loud when I want to.

Well you knowww I have the system.. Well axle back plus test pipes and I love the sound. Cruising is quiet with no drone while the tone and volume is perfect when on the throttle. Love the system!
