SLK55 X-Pipe

X-pipe.

This video is on here somewhere, but thought I'd drop it here too.
I've since had it remapped and sprintbooster is on its way.

Not sure what to do next.

Awesome sound.

Where did you have the Xpipe done? I'm in West Yorkshire, so not too far away.

Also, what does the Sprint booster do?

sprint booster basically fools the system that when you step on the gas at let's say 25% of pressure on accelerator, it thinks it is 50%, etc

As said. It's not making and more power. It 'sharpens' throttle response. Not that handy in winter, if ice is about, and it does cause the kick downs to come in more often and sooner. It's a nice toy if it's what you fancy and I still flick mine on and off often. Just changes the feel.

X-pipe sorted by this bloke:

Russ Fellows Fabrications - Motorsport & Road Bespoke Exhaust System & Manifold Fabrication

Call him and chat. Think I ended up on the Wirral for a few hours one Friday afternoon at his mates garage to have it fitted.

I do sometimes think it would be nice to have a quiet drive, maybe 5% of the time, but way more often think Wowwwwww!

It has been described as insane by some and awesome by others.
