Post 350 Exhaust ?

Been looking over the site and cannot find info on the standard system on the 350 ---- mine has the cats upfront then the pipes back to an X pipe then out to the mufflers located at the very rear just before the tips --- is this the stock arrangement ?

Yes, I have pics of it somewhere on this site, two cats, straight into an x-pipe, then the dual exhaust tips, so it's stock arrangement.

edit:
found one pic towards the rear but I have another one showing the cat's, I think it's at benzworld.

O.k., Ynot himself was little bit faster.
But here is the thread of the Supersprint installation.
https://www.slkworld.com/performance-...installed.html

And here the arrangement of the cats. But the car has four, two on each side that you can easily see, the other two vertically near the engine.

Resonator (muffler) is located aft of the catalytic converters and X-pipe. It is visible on Ynot's photo to the right lower side of the photo.

Im soooo jealous, that zaust pipe system is purfict. Makes the car sound better too I bet. Me an Bubba is cipherin on my new system tonite. Bubba says luminum is the best so we bought two cases of Bud. After 2 six packs I realised Bubba waz right, now I think the stock muffler sounds perfict,,,,,, 2 cases Bud $30.00 zaust $2100.00, dang I saved $2070.00 an didn't even have to git tha bumper jack out. Thanks Bubba, you are my hero(((((wonder what the car will sound like tomorrow,,,, probably be too loud after all that beer))))))

is that the resonator? I was looking at the slk55 exhaust system, and there is an extra box b/w the cat and muffler, wut's the difference b/w that? and I see ppl cutting off that resonator b/w the cat and mufflers.

what happens if i de-cat the slk350? would it make a difference?

There is a difference between the 55 and 350 exhaust. Resonators are used to get the right sound. The 350 has it OEM and don´t need one, the 55...

I believe you´ll lose your warranty and you´ll win tickets from the police if they catch you.

You can't de-cat the 350 its OBDII will be in limp mode all the time and wont pass any emissions tests.

You could install sports-cats if you wanted but any mods would void the warranty.

On the 55 the resonator is the box roughly where Ynot's X pipe is

As mentioned before de-cat will not pass emissions, not a good idea, there are options, you can get free flowing sports cats on ebay for $95 each (link on mbworld in the SLK55 section), go to a muffler shop and get it welded along with a new x-pipe and quad tip mufflers, it should sound very good, not sure how much power increase/decrease, should run you about $800 USD. I thought about it but decided to go with something proven. Good luck.

Send a message via AIM to aznflightfreak23
Does the R171 SLK 300 have primary cats and then leads to secondary cats? Can I just remove the secondary cats and replace with the X pipe?
