I do not have the stock muffler and will be doing a muffler delete with this and will have to fab the pipe from section two to the tips.
    My current set up is fully ******* with muffler delete and dual vibrant resonators in the tail section. With the resonators being in the tail section of my current set up, I don't think that's helping with my rasp. I was seriously considering having four resonators. Two in the mid-pipes and two in the tail section. A member here also mentioned possibly resonated tips.
    For the tips, I was going to go with the burnt titanium. I'd prefer a slip-on but I'm having trouble finding any.
    I know the exhaust won't give me any more power, this is more just for sound and quality - my oem exhaust is just too cut up now. LOL
    Any opinions / advice appreciated and let me know if you agree with the placement of the resonators.

    Meisterschaft 1 & 2:

    Nice work. I'm confused though. Did you use stock piping, replacing cats and millers with resonators?

    You mention Meisterschaft, but that link shows a $1300 price tag.

    This was just the proto type...basically item exhaust with resonators to make sure I like the sound....I do...do now I am getting the SS Meisterschaft and adding in resonators like the OEM exhaust. Sucks it takes 4-5 weeks to get!

    Why pay $1300 for the piping and not just buy the complete M2/Topspeed catback for $450, and cut out the mufflers? It'll save you $1000.
    When/if I build a custom exhaust, I'll go that route.

    Since you re-used the stock piping here, what is the diameter of the stock piping?

    I appreciate that man! Trying to give new options to the community...seems like exhaust is a important one.

    im told that they are interchangeable, with the e92 exhaust being like 1-2" longer (tips stick out 1-2 more). Since you're cutting the mufflers off anyway, it won't matter.

    after reading reviews I think I an going to pass...the metal they use is a very bad quality and has actually rusted so bad that people had exhaust leaks in a short time period.

    Lets hear some WOT pulls.
    I may try this depending on how it sounds.

    if you like it how it is, why bother changing to aftermarket piping?
