It's purple because of the camera used to record it, not the metal that the exhaust is made of. Hot exhausts give off large amounts of infrared as well as the red glow as it heats up. If the camera doesn't have a good IR filter on the sensor it will pick up the IR as a purple glow.

Here is a picture showing the same effect on a remote control. They use IR LED's.

That said.....That engine is freaking awesome. I would love to have it shoehorned into my car.
Because Racecar.

Steve Dinan should touch that header instead of signing a piece of trim

You people get all wet over a lousy 720 HP on a non-streetable motor that probably costs $30k ($50k in Dinan money) when a stock block LS motor can easily exceed that, and have way more TQ, and idle like stock. My 13 year old C5 has 635/532 to the wheels, and still has the untouched shortblock. V8s sound better, too.

Not even close.

People stop me in my E63 V-10 with Tubi X-pipe, section 3 and Dinan CAI, to tell me how great it sounds. People have also followed me for miles to relay the same info. And to give you a bit of perspective, a friend who easily owns about 30 million in cars, including McLaren P1 and F1s told me that I have the best sounding engine he has ever heard. He will tell you if you own a crap car in a second and has no reason to shine me on. He placed a bid to own a professional sports team. Professionally, I am a nobody to him. He gains nothing by lying to me. The car...that's a different story.

V8's sounding better than V10's. HA!

Great for straight lines but it'd never go around a corner with your hard-on stuck in the steering wheel!

I'm not the baller you are, that exhaust system you have probably could've bought me a built shortblock. That aside, sound preferences are highly subjective, and you're entitled to your opinion. (Not some hypothetical rich dudes') I've heard some flat-plane crank V-8s that'll rip your head off. Even Ford's DOHC 4.6 sounds like the sweetest music with the right pipes.


I've got an idea... we could both post sound clips of our rides, and have the BMW community decide. American V-8 vs. German V-10? Idle/rev?

Not a baller. I buy everything on sale. The i8 is the rare exception. You can listen to to Tubi equipped V-10s on YouTube. Here is one now:



Enjoy.
