Will this pass California smog?
Only thing you need to worry about in CA is removing the cats. The cat back does not affect these.
I currently have a racepipe and a resonator delete on my MS3, with my resonator delete does it matter if I get resonated or non resonated? If I get the resonated version can I just take the pipe off and connect it straight to the racepipe with the resonator if I really wanted to?
Fitment will be the same regardless of having the resonated or non resonated. One is just louder than the other.
Will i need an AP for running non-resonated and i have no other mods at all will this still bolt up to all factory?
A catback can be put on without an issues. No tuning required. A downpipe however is a different story. Feel free to call us if you have any questions!
Do I have to buy an upgraded flange for the new catback exhaust (non Resonated) or does that come with the whole package?
Comes with the whole package.
What is more popular, the non resonated CBE or the resonated?
Just depends on how loud you want your speed.
Does this exhaust directly bolt on without doing any modifications to it?
Yes it does!
Yes it does!
Yes it does!
Will the CBE version bolt up directly to the stock downpipe/cat? I have a 2010 MS3, no other exhaust mods.
Yes it will!
Will this cbe work with my cobb do?
Yes it will!
I have a Cobb DP will this cat-back fit
Yes it will!
I have a Curt class 1 hatch for towing my sport bike. Will it interfere with the axle back exhaust hangers?
It should not interfere with anything. Our exhaust system actually takes up less space in the rear.
I live in California. Are there CA. Legal papers included with this exhaust? And will there be an issue with smog? I believe this question was asked but is there any updated information? Thanks.
The exhaust does not have a CARB#. We are not currently investigating it.
Will getting the mid section only make any difference and will it fit the oem exhaust?
The mid-section is not designed for the OEM exhaust, it would be larger piping than the racepipe or the axleback of the stock exhaust and thus you would have difficulty preventing leaks at the flanges. It would give you a little better flow but it would be a minimal amount.
There is a large price difference between midsection resonated and full resonated. What are the differences? I am running completely catless.I''d Like to avoid highway drone. Curious what I'd Get with partial vs full restonation.
Resonated Cat Back vs Non Resonated Cat Back are the same price. If you select "mid-section only" then we will only send you the mid section and you will not receive the axle-back portion. Selecting "mid-section only" is not a full catback exhaust that has resonators on only the mid-section, it is literally just the mid-section piping. For the least drone you would want a full resonated cat-back. It still will have more drone than stock (since it is louder and has a much deeper and rumbling note) but it is better than the non-resonated version.
My car is currently all stock. Would I have to buy an access port and get a tune if I was to put this exhaust on my car?
You would not.
when you guys say "Mid Section Only" do you mean the mid section is resonated or you guys are selling only the mid-section? lol
It is the pipe between the second catalyst and the muffters.
does that mean if we select mid section we only get the midsection pipe? Or the midsection is resonated and nothing behind it is?
The mid section is the same for both versions of our exhaust. The resonated version of the exhaust has another one back past the mid section.
Can you give a decibel rating for both the resonated and non-resontated tips... Or atleast a good estimate? Also, would I be able to try one tip and exchange for the other if I'm not happy?
You cannot swap tips if you are not happy, and we have not done a decibel rating.
Will you be coming out with a burnt tip option anytime soon? I'm ready to order mine but really like the burnt tip look. Or is it something an install shop can do for me?
We will not be doing a "burnt tip" option. The MS3 creates so much soot that the color of the tips is quickly turned to black anyway.
With the non resonated exhaust will the car still pass inspection? Or will I have to stock out before going for inspection
It depends on the state, but in most of them it will pass since it does not alter the Catalytic Converter. Resonators are a sound device, not an emissions device.
How much louder is the exhaust with the resonator deleted? I want a deep crisp sound and with the resonator sounded great. so with it being gone does it make it significanly louder as to bother others? or does it just have a more aggressive sound to it?
The sound is louder, and has more highway drone. It tends to be a little more single toned compared to the alternating frequency of a resonated section.
