I have a 87 325is, my exhaust set up is: 2, 2 1/4, merged to 1, 3 1/2 at the cat, then back to 2, 2 1/4 to a remus muffler. its sounds burly as an m20 can. i would keep the cat just so you dont get black soot at the exit. the cut out would be cool too if you got some long tube header and dumped it out the side behind the passenger door
Yep, Im planning on having it exit on the passenger side. and my car comes stock with 177 ft/lbs of tq, and i have a conforti chip in there which claims another 28 which would put me at 205 ft/lbs. BUT, chips lie so i just guess its around 200 (good round number) . It doesn't have tq like the 6 series does, the M30 engine is freaking amazing!
My buddy has an E30 and it doesnt make anywhere close to 177tq. maybe 150 (at the very most in better than perfect conditions)...maybe. NW-built needs a dyno day.
Agreed. There is so much bench racing.
