They are all kinda in the same vicinity. Napa and Vallejo being separated by maybe 20-25 minutes.

I work till 5 on Thursday unfortunately. I'll try to get something together where we can all cruise and meet somewhere in the middle maybe.

Then the SES light is to tell you your car is detecting a problem since there are no catalytic converters. Acting just as it should.

Cold start video being uploaded. Check back in a little for it.

I don't know where to film a video of me revving the piss out of it. Definitely not a neighborhood or public place kind of thing to do. lol

Updated the first post with a video of my cold start this morning. It was so loud, the video isn't really indicative of how loud it actually is. Quiets down considerably after a minute or so though when it steadies at 600rpm.

I'll do my my best to get a video of me revving it either tonight or tomorrow morning.
A x-pipe, resonator, or exhaust change might be in the future.

JDane07, great review!

I totally agree with all your initial impressions of the headers. Nice to get a true cold start of the MMW w/ the PE.

"Think PE volume, just a little more noticeable"


That's probably the best way to describe them, you know they're always there but you can regulate how loud you want them to be, by the pressure on the pedal or the style of driving you're doing...

in town-slow & civil vs out in the woods- fast & loud



As far as the CEL light, just get the AA off-road tune or I think Evolve has a tune for the N52 and have them turn off the o2 sensors but keep the readiness monitors intact so that they will show ready for emission time...

Glad to hear that smell went away, do you still have the secondaries in place or did they remove them? I've found with my secondaries still intact that it helps significantly clean up the smell, even if it does rob me of a few hp

Great write up, Alex! The car sounds beastly! I'm sure the video does it no justice! I can't wait to see and hear it in person.

Hey everyone, uploaded another video of the cabin noise under acceleration, check it out. I apologize in advance for the quality and fidgeting of the camera, couldn't find a good place for it. And the sunroof was tilted upwards allowing a little more noise in.
