I just put a DP in and seems like I lossed some crackling, but when it does crackle, its a lot louder than with stock DP. Trying to make a good video of the Remus + DP + PPK sound but it seems temperamental and I dont want to make the video in my neighborhood as its a quiet street loaded with kids and stuff.

Yes you do lose a lot of burbles and pops/crackling with the DPs but the gains are well worth it.

Please post that vid.

I had the PPK flashed on my E90 11' 335i x-Drive recently and while there are certainly gurgles and some pops it isn't anywhere near what i was hoping for. Right now the only mods on my car are the PPK flash, Alpina TCU flash and the 3.5" VRSF Downpipe. I was hoping that the cat-less DP would have increased the gurgles and pops some but it really didn't do all that much. I have to drive with my windows completely down and next to a divider (reflects the sound) for the sound to be noticeable from inside the cabin and even then i have to really be listening for it...

I have the JB4, Chargepipe, FMIC and drop in filter coming in this week and hopefully that will help a bit. I was hoping not to have to get an aftermarket exhaust to get the sound i want but its starting to look like i might have to. Of course being an X-Drive i also have the secondary cats in the exhaust system so i have to wonder if those are killing a lot of the sound from the car.

Honestly I believe that the DPs kill the gurgles and pops because it helps expel those burnt gasses (from what understand the gurgles and pops occur because it is unburnt fuel) so I'm not surprised.

No amount of mods will improve that but I think if we took our DPs off and just ran the regular restrictive/stock one then it would produce more gurgles and pops.

Oh, I stuck it in a Remus/PPK thread. Forgot I had mentioned it here as well. Check my channel for progress sound clips.

This is very interesting! I'll have to do a video with my Dinan. All of the PPKs sound different with all these exhausts.

On a stock N55 with Performance exhaust, will it really crackle and pop every time it shifts to a lower gear during regular driving? I can see that being fun for about a week or two then get REALLY old.

Any thoughts?

Do you have a stick or auto? Mine is auto and only does the crackles when I'm in manual mode. Not in regular drive. I'm not sure about sport mode haven't really tried with that. I'm assuming with a stick it'll just do it whenever you downshift.

It's dependent on how aggressively you shift. Downshift at low revs and there is little-to-no crackling.
In an auto/DCT it shifts non-aggressively in regular drive mode so it covers up the crackling.

When the car is warmed up from aggressive driving it tends to crackle more too.

Mine is an auto, and even with the PE I get some crackles and pops after hard acceleration, which I love but it deff sounds more frequent with the PPK (from the vids I've seen). I thought DS mode was only more aggressive shifting - does it do anything to the engine?

If I can casually drive around without it popping all the time, I would be pretty happy.
