Not bad. Much less rasp than most of the other catless systems posted.

That does sound pretty amazing, not tok much rasp but nice and aggressive, can't wait to hear it in person

Even with a second cat and res delete! Wonder how it'll sound with a res in place still, probably even smootherr

Anyone know how they compare to supersprint headers?

Check Engine light should come off when i get as custom tune. I was expecting the light to come on.

I was planning on just having the pips all one piece from the headers, but my buddy Stevie said that he would rather put the Bolt on to the headers so if we need to drop it or if i want to change anything later it will be easier. It really doesnt matter what way you go in my option, but i like having the bolt on so if i need to change anything its easy.

Thank you

Cruising down the freeway in 6th gear you don't here anything unless I step on it. If your really interested in the set let me know I will take you for a ride.

bms downpipe fix is the most dependable way to remove o2 codes. Ask dj apex. AA tune didn't do it for him. Plus, once you get the error it is very hard to reverse from what I read. If you can get the downpipe fix and reset the code that is your best bet.

PM me if you want to sell your stock manifolds.

i'm very interested in this since i want to go full catless myself - how does it work for the N52 when it's made for the N54?

the BMS fix would be $700 cheaper than the AA one - and all the AA tune seems to give power wise is 5whp odd, going by the dynos they provide themselves.

sounds much better than my previous setup: SS headers & Eisenmann race.
It's still a little raspy but it's quite ok.

Ohh, who was laughing at 1:55? that was just so evil hahahah.

More drive-by vids please op.

When i got the AA tune it didnt work at first then they installed the new stage 2 tune and turned off my rear o2's witch i was getting a SES light for. so i found unpluging them stopped the SES light from coming on.

Its been fine for 7k miles so far but i think to get true gains anyone who goes catless will have to get a dyno tune cause these flash tunes dont do much since the car's they are tuned for are catted.
But i may be wrong but in oct ill be getting a dyno tune.

One thing i noticed is my city mpg is poo anywere from 14-16mpg (but i may be a little part of that) lol
But my hwy MPG is better then stock 31-35mpg!!! thats also doing 75mph

Yeah that is what I have been reading and looking into also, so that is why I kept the Powerbox instead of getting an AA tune or another tune. The gains are not much more then what I’m getting now and why would I spend the extra money on AA when I can spend alittle more and have a custom dyno tune done.

I did notice also around town, my gas went down, but I think we are in the same boat that I can’t keep my foot out of it - LOL, but on the freeway it seems like I get great gas mileage the car runs alot more efficient and my mileage went up.

I hit about 100 on the video but that was all. The road i was on i the video wasn't a straight road. I really haven't opened it up faster then that. I need a good straight away and dont want to have to worry about cops. I will try and get some video of that but have to play it safe also. LOL
