X PIPE VIDEOS - Resonator & Secondary Cats Removal - Replaced With X Pipe

Hope you like the videos. This Modification is an absolute must!!! I wish I had done it sooner. The sound quality doesn't really do the sound justice. But it gives you an idea.
The best part is start up and when you put your foot down. No annoying drone and just a perfect sound, which should have been done to the car to start with. Also sounds good when cruising but if you want to, you can drive normal and wouldn't even know.

10/10!!!

( PS - I know I was hammering it on cold start but once won't hurt and it was for the viewers benefit, white smoke due to cold start)

Cold Start


Warm Start

next month. they are well busy

I'm trying them out on my estate first, as it will need a new back box soon. Honestly, the poor quality of these MB OEM parts. It's only lasted 17 northern years and 180,000 miles. I think I should press them for a goodwill contribution

Noooooo!

If the Bluebadger sees this my dreams are ruined.

I'm already in trouble for pulling away two streets from the house.
Wasn't even being aggressive.

Maybe I can get BB to not like Phil and block his posts?
Then she won't see this.....

How does this (exhaust sound quality) compare with just a plain X-pipe (e.g., Supersprint X-pipe) without the secondary cat (catalytic converters) being deleted? Anyone have the chance to hear and compare both (plain X-pipe vs X-pipe+secondary cat delete) at the same setting?

I am thinking of just The SuperSprint X-pipe to replace the resonator but leave the secondary catalytic converters because of stricter AQMD (Air Quality Management Department) requirements in California.

Here in the UK Midlands we have different members with setups comparable to what you're asking (but not with Supersprint), but not sure how best to convey that comparison to you...

Andy ( @ZeroZero ) has a Magnaflow x-pipe in place of the centre resonator, but still has his secondary cats in place. @Col and @ANG55AMG (Angelo) have the same Magnaflow x-pipe instead of the centre resonator, but both Col and Angelo have also had their secondary cats removed.

I've also had similar to Col and Angelo (x-pipe and 2nd cat delete), but with custom x-pipe (similar to Phil's), and you'll find a link to a video of my before and after in my signature.

The only thing we don't have is a recording of Andy's, which is closer to the setup that you're considering...

I'd describe it as somewhere between OEM and the results that the rest of us have (me, Col, Angelo, Phil), as you might expect. I'd say it's definitely worth doing, as it does add a little more of a growl than stock.

Hope that helps...

I did supersprint x pipe before I did headers & racing cats / secondary delete. Just the x pipe was minor.

Great, this is exactly what I would like to do. I like the sound too. I've just checked on Ebay regarding the 'Magnaflow X-Pipe' what diameter pipe did you use?

It's the 2.5" version you need for the R171 SLK 55 AMG... are you going to have the secondary cats removed too (mine sailed through the UK MOT without them)?

Thanks for the info David. I would like to fit just the X-Pipe like you said: (Andy ( @ZeroZero ) has a Magnaflow x-pipe in place of the centre resonator, but still has his secondary cats in place. @Col and @ANG55AMG (Angelo) have the same Magnaflow x-pipe instead of the centre resonator)
I just want to intensify the growl a smidgen, and I quite like the sound of Andy's (Zero Zero) I heard Sean Ashton's, Davie's and Davet4s at our meet the other week, and they "scared the crap outta me" (I know, I'm a wimp ) If I grow some bigger 'round thingy's' later, I can always delete the cat's. I don't suppose you know where Andy got his Magnaflow, as I've looked on Ebay and they only have 2.25" and 3"....Terence....

You're welcome Terence! The good news is that you've heard both options now, so you know what you want. I had to make my decision after only hearing Andy's, but I am pleased with the choice I made.

I don't know where Andy got his Magnaflow x-pipe from, but I think that Col (and possibly others) bought theirs on eBay. The one you need is the "Magnaflow Stainless Steel X-Pipe Exhaust Pipe Crossover 2.5" 10791", like this one that's being sold by a non-UK seller at the moment:
• Magnaflow Stainless Steel X-Pipe Exhaust Pipe Crossover 2.5" 10791

There are UK sellers of Magnaflow bits, but I also don't see this particular x-pipe available in the UK on eBay at the moment. Perhaps contact one of the UK sellers that have a different size for sale, and ask them if they have the 2.5" version (Magnaflow part 10791) available, or if they'll be getting any in stock anytime soon.

Failing that, perhaps an exhaust shop near to you could supply and fit one for you, as there is some cutting and welding needed to get it fitted?

Good luck!

Couple of vids of mine Just an X-Pipe and secondary cat delete. Sailed through the MOT a couple of weeks ago too - absolutely miles within the emissions limit.

Acceleration -

Go Pro attached to car including cold start and lots more noises -

Never have I spent £300 better in my whole life.

That's great camera placement to capture the sound with x-pipe & secnd cat dleete in that second video! That's the best representation of the actual sound that I've heard captured on a video so far! In fact, it may even be a little quieter from the drivers seat, but that gives a great idea of what it sounds like from behind!
