Exhaust Theory

Since we enter the patent paper work I can let you guys know a little be of what we intend to do in this exhaust.

My english is limited so I will write the best I can and I would not mind receiving constructive criticism in case I don't make any sense, is already hard for me on non technical stuff so this is even harder so please forgive me.

Coming soon.....

I will not have a system done by christmas, the lead time for the first full system is 9-12 weeks, also I need my car down in Arizona for special tuning for the exhaust after what should take a few more weeks after that, The prices came first just because I want people that are waiting for to know what to expect and the dyno number will be only after I have the system ready to put on the market. Pictures in other hand should be coming soon.

Also I'm very confident that you guys will like the Dyno results, We spent some #$$ to get this well done and the companies that we are working with it are the best out there, The Dyno numbers is being no longer a worry for us, but I just can't say anything more about that.

The reason for me even post in here is just so people like me know that they will have other options on the future, My partner does not really agrees with that but I like to research peoples opinion in what is needed out there.

Sorry, The X-pipe is totally different for our cans, no way to produce an adapter to use the SuperSprint ones since our mufflers are very long about 30", Also the diameter of the exhaust on that end is 2.5", and that is the reason that I will put 3 more mufflers on the market right after this ones to add to the line of products that we will have.

So will your mufflers bolt directly to the factory system if that's all we purchase? Or are you saying that we need to buy the entire system for them all to play nicely together?

Trying to get clarification is all

No problem,

DKF Headers will work with OEM section 1 or DKF section 1
DKF Section 1 (S pipe) works with OEM headers and DKF headers But does not work with OEM section 2 (x-Pipe) w/o custom Flanges.
DKF section 2 (x-Pipe) works with OEM section 1 with use of adapter.
DKF Mufflers only works with DKF section 2 (x-Pipe)

For those that buy the DKF Section 2 (x-Pipe) and buy the adapter to use with OEM section 1 and later decide to upgrade to DKF Section 1 as well, I will offer a core Discount (you send the adapter back and if in good condition you get 60% of what you paid for the adapter towards the DKF Section 1 Price) If within 90 days 90% towards the DKF Section 1 price

The mufflers were sent to final assy today, we should get some pictures soon.

Also we are signing with the company that will produce the X-pipe and Sec 1.

X-pipe should be sent to production in a few days.

I just read through the whole thread, and this is going to be one hell of a contrubution to the Z4 community

Hey CRFINE we would like you to test the setup for SC Z4m and have it tuned by ESS to make sure that the SC+Exhaust work with each other at optimum.

the configuration would be:

DKF Type 1 Headers with max performance Merge collector Ceramic coated for SC cars $1580

DKF Section 1 w/interchangeable section, Ceramic coated for NA/SC cars $594*

DKF Section 2 Ceramic coated $792**

DKF Performance Mufflers ceramic Coated (Pair) $1350***

2 DKF Resonator Ceramic coated $213

4 T-bolt V-clamp with quick release
2 T-bolt V-Clamp w/o quick release

I will give you a really good discount (cost price) on the setup if you can sign a Confidentiality agreement and take it to ESS for the tuning.

The discount should cover the cost for the special tuning file + the time that you will not have your car.


Please let us know if you are interested, very soon we will have a system for SC cars ready to be tested and tuned.

Sure, Have patience, The manufactory received the Mufflers today and they will start working on reproducing it asap after that they will be sent to me so I can test fit them one more time and then go to Ceramic Coating and After this is done I will have pictures of it here.

In the mean time I got the Company that will built the X-pipe signing a contract and a NDA so I can send the prototype to them to be reproduced in a few days.

I don't understand why people is so antagonistic about new things (answer to a email that I received), Things like this take time and money and if its not finished yet is because I spend a lot of money on it and I don't want to waste money, everything has to be well measured balanced studied so to achieve a good and reliable result. We are trying to accomplish something that will be of benefit to anyone that uses this car like me and enjoy it.

We are trying to give the opportunity to either use this exhaust with a tune dedicated for it or even use headers w/o need for tuning and bypass problems with OBDII and this was never done before.

If I had another 10k-15k laying around I could have this done within two weeks but I don't, so I have to make small investments at the time to keep my budget in check.

Thank's for all those that patiently are waiting for this and know how hard it is to get things done w/o making big mistakes and wasting a ton of money.

I really don't understand why such a behavior, I could just get this for myself why does anyone want to bring it down like I'm a asking anything of anyone.
