MMW CS makes muffler for the n52, not for the n54 correct?

I did this and hated it. Everything in the cabin rattled and it was a loud sound, not a nice sound.

I threw my OEM one back on for the time being until I can come up with a solution.

I hear that more when the car is cold and first started. Getting used to it but I will have the exhaust back on Saturday, so I am willing to deal for a while.

I understand what your doing, but essentially you turned your OEM exhaust into a muffler delete. Even though its in the OEM muffler housing, putting straight pipe inside is accomplishing the same as cutting the mufflers off and welding on pipe.

Not quite. There is an H pipe in the oem exhaust and the mufflers will quiet down most of the.drone that comes from the muffler delete I have now.

what about making several holes maybe in those straight pipes and keeping some of the wool in the box, to reduce some of the noise, I mean it would take a lot of time to figure out the proper amount.

haha If this works I am hopping on board. I would be one to try this out but I blew $300 for my muffler delete which I had to get taken off because it was too loud.

I hope this works, please post a video!!

They welded my pipe they didn't use clamps, I got stainless steel pipe and my tips I got send out for powdercoat. I agree 300 is a lot but I wanted to give it a shot and they were the best muffler guys in the area

Oh ok. I would think that the powdercoating would be where the money went. They soldered mine as well with stainless.

I have it on.....mechanic promised me pics later of what he did, but I got a look inside. It sounds siiick. Lots of burbling and crackling without the drone. Sounds very nice when you rev the engine and very similar to a PE exhaust.

He took out all of the insulation and perforated piping, and removed the H pipe, so its basically a straight pipe setup running through the mufflers. For some reason, the addition of the muffler through the pipes eliminates the drone. FWIW, I do have my main cats on, with the secondaries deleted.

Video up later!
