Supersprint Section 1 + Rogue Section 2 Combo?

Anyone here running factory exhaust (headers and mufflers) but swap out section 1 and 2 for Supersprint S and Rougeís X pipe?

Also is it safe to assume all of the above would bolt up, including X pipe to OEM mufflers?

How loud would this setup be? Any noticeable drone or rasp?

The stock silencers are still quiet with catless headers, not much more than stock.

See the Exhaust Fest results. You should be able to get some reasonable comparisons there. https://www.zpost.com/forums/showthr...8#post11811418

Rogueís X pipe is basic bolt on to OEM mufflers. As for the SS section 1 (S pipe), the X pipe will bolt on to it but Iím not sure if the S pipe is bolt on to the OE headers. Based on a quick google pic search, thereís catless SS S pipes that are bolt on, some other SS S pipe options may need welding to the OE headers

SS V1 section 1 would need to be welded and modified, but V2 should replace the OEM s-pipe. I don't have firsthand experience with the V2.

Correct there’s 2 versions of the S pipe

I believe this one fits SS headers
https://www.turnermotorsport.com/e/p...straight-pipe/

And this one bolts up to oe headers
https://www.turnermotorsport.com/e/p...straight-pipe/

So in theory it seems oe headers -> SS section 1 -> RE x pipe -> oe mufflers should work but confirmation would be great. I know the oe headers with stock everything else isn’t terribly loud but I think the rasp would be more noticeable for vert owners

If you're willing to weld the OE headers onto the SS section 1, then yes this should work (OE headers>SS S pipe>RE X pipe>OE mufflers.

Everything is more noticeable for the vert owners, but damn it if you're anything like me, you're gonna love it

RE used to make a section 1 for our cars in addition to the xpipe. I have a set but dont use them much because combined with my SS section 2 and SS race mufflers its too loud. But it does shoot flames which is cool!

Yup, everything will bolt up - no welding needed. The "SS Section 1 Straight Pipe" (789812KT) that you referenced above will bolt up to OE headers AND SS Non-Stepped Headers "Tubolare V1".

Currently Running the following which is pretty much what you're looking to do but with the headers & section 1 swapped:
SS Non-Stepped "Tubolare V1" Headers -> OEM Section 1 -> RE X-Pipe -> RE Exhaust

Is the RE section 1 catless?

hmm, i might be running what your asking.
CSL headers (euro Z4m) to SS catless section 1 to RE Xpipe to a set of race mufflers.

RE Xpipe def bolts up to oem mufflers, as mine bolted up to the OEM pipe before the swap, does the SS s1 bolt up to your USA headers? beats the hell out of me, but i would probably think so..

Nfi about your mufflers , but yeah its pretty loud. and disturbingly so if your not in the right band.

Yeppers.

Fit is a little sketchy, but I think all of the aftermarket ones are.
They make the bend toward the tunnel too soon after the headers, which runs them across part of the trans mount.
