Any pics you guys can share.I did basically the same, but with headers and 200 cell cats - it's right at the limit of civil. I assume you left the back boxes in?
Kleemann said straight pipes were better than an X? I remember someone posting quite a long technical read about the benefits of an X pipe where the exhaust paths cross...
but you also have allot more going on, Kleeman supercharge :rbI have SuperSprint X-pipe, Kleemann headers and Kleemann Tune and I am very satisfied with the power. No need for retune.
If you have headers you will need a retune because of the CEL light when accompanied with the Kleemann 2ndary cats.
I just had a bad gut feeling when the Kleeman dealer was saying no to the x-pipe, kinda makes you wonder if you want to take your car to have anything done at such a dealer.Hey Dev7 - to answer your question in the other thread, yes, mine looked identical to yours before I started - unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me when we started, so I don't have any really good "before" pictures.
Interestingly enough, my exhaust guys all said "absolutely must" have on the x-pipe for a V8 - loads of technical reasons that I think Arno posted up as well.
Yeah, not sure what your dealer is up to - sorta flys in the face of conventional wisdom for any twin exhaust motor.I just had a bad gut feeling when the Kleeman dealer was saying no to the x-pipe, kinda makes you wonder if you want to take your car to have anything done at such a dealer.
I really don't want to just purchase and the ntake to someone because of concerns of any issues and because I supplied such basically my problem.
The x-pipe appears to be pretty simple and shouldn't be a concern but the headers could be a different story.
How long did it take the guys to do your work?
Yeah Mo - Kleemann Headers, Kleenman Hi-Flow Cats, 2.5 stainless front to rear, and x-pipe replacing the center cats and resonator with a Kleemann tune for all the above. Quaife LSD was installed late last year, along with an 030 Steering wheel and strut brace. I'm about out of mods, only thing I may do this year is update to a 2.5 COMAND. Been keeping my eye out for a used HK amp - if I find that, I'll start sourcing the head.So the modifications on your car are headers, x pipe and tune ?
I went to a Kleeman authorized dealer to get details and was told not to do the SuperSprint X-pipe, said it was a waist of money and to just go straight pipe, also mentioned to gut the muffler boxes.
Really what are the differences from say SuperSprint compared to Kleeman and the rest.
