Amg exhaust

Hi Everyone,

I went ahead and did a resonator and x pipe on my slk55 and to be honest I was pretty disappointed. I expected it to have a little more of a bite but it kind of sounds weird. Does anyone have an idea on how to make it a little more aggressive(muscly)? I know it’s not a muscle car but it just sounds odd.

Go and stand behind your car while someone else gives it the wellie.

Vastly different to standard!


If you must you can gut the rear boxes but beware going too far. An option might be some electric gate valves placed before the rear boxes or a diverter valve that routes through a ( custom built ) straight through pipe at the rear boxes.

I suspect you may find that a little too much will rapidly become far too much on a long drive though.

Piecha/Fox in Germany makes a couple options for the R172...

Here is the one on my R172 350 made by Fox (sold under the Piecha name)... the sound is music to my ears always... plus I added an aFe Pro Air filter which ups the sound volume a couple octaves....


Specific for the R172 AMG, then you should check out @Col setup posted here with several awesome sound clips

@Col can give you all the low down on his setup, or you could read it all up in the dedicated sub-thread on Exhaust options

I have a 172 AMG as well. All i have done is a muffler delete, as well as i unplugged my flaps to keep them permanently open. It definitely has a more aggressive/ muscular tone

It is also possible to deactivate/always open the flaps without unplugging them with Stardiagnosis.
I did it myself, but it drones it c-mode and cylinder deactivation.
The better solution is to install an electronic flap control system.

I want to try installing my E-cut outs on my R171 55. Just in front of the last boxes. I have had these valves on 2 previous cars and really liked them. Especially being able to switch from stock to louder and everything in between (e.g. just opening the valves slightly)
