I agree with you on the important bits of info. DKF wanted to get the ball rolling on the group by early to give people plenty of time to come up with funds and also so they would be able to hit a specific manufature date. I will be doing my best to fit more testing in before the group buy is completed.

for example...

Ess s/c tune issues?? stock car tune issues?? a CEL is now an inspection fail over here in the uk so any issues like this is a huge no no, really need to nail down info on the s/c tune..

tip protrustion?? what was decided in the end??

s/c car dyno and power gains??

Db ratings @ idle and drive by's? (i have to pass 105db static tests otherwise i cant use the car on track)

i LOVE this option but for me the important info is still up in the air really.....im going to add myself to the group buy but its really depending on all info in this thread/from DKF is nailed down, you however have done a great job representing this product and i personally couldnt think of a better person to do this task!!!
Coolim defo going to need alittle time to come up with the money so i see your reasoning.........

It's crazy in person! A track set-up for sure unless you don't mind REALLY pissing off other motorist. I should also add a PSA video to express the need for ear protection when running the full race

That. Sounds. Amazing. Very exotic, quite impressive.

Wish we had one of these on a car for Exhaust 'Fest, where a lot of folks could see and more importantly hear it in person.

If there is a Z4 M in the phoenix area with open flow headers that is willing to do some testing, send me a PM.

Thanks,
Chris



DKF Exhaust System Group Buy:
Hey guys, I told DKF I would help with specific testing/info at the begining of this project and I am sticking to my word. I have run into an O2 sensor issue that is un-related to the exhaust, but prevents me from getting good dyno info. I will continue testing and posting info, but until my car is 100% I will not be performing Dyno's.
In the meantime, if there is anyone in the Phonix area with a Z4M that wants to help out with testing, please send me a PM.
cheers,
Chris
