What Dp's/intakes is everyone using?

Hey everyone. Trying to get an idea of what downpipes/intakes everyone is using. I ordered the Meisterschaft Gtc and I will want more sound 100%.

So what downpipes is everyone using? How long have you had them installed? Any issues? I have read that the gaskets should be replaced.

I know downpipes and gtc exhaust will add turbo spool and I'm hoping intakes can help with that also. I know there's no real benefits power wise but def looking for what the forum is running and how products have treated the car. I'm running a jb4 on the car also

I have a stock set of downpipes that have been gutted. I got them off a guy that sold his F10. Pretty easy install as I did it myself, just lots of unbolting before you can access them...

Only issue atm is a CEL but that will get taken care of after a tune.

Yeah I've seen people doing that as well. I'm leaning towards an aftermarket set but hoping to see someone who's had them in for a while with no issues.

Using RK carbon intake and gutted OEM DP's. Best way to go IMO for performance and sound. Also I had the gaskets and rings replaced when they installed the OEM DP's

I mean a catless downpipe is a catless downpipe.. Not much difference between them except for the fact that the OEM ones are more insulated so you don't have to worry about excess heat out of them.

Ams seems to be popular. Those MSR intakes sound insane but just so so pricey.

Same here. Bought a set off eBay for $500 and gutted them in 20 mins, best option available for fitment and sound. After hearing all the issues with wastegate rattle from aftermarket DP's I stayed with OEM.

I'm running RK intakes and downpipes. And definitely change your gaskets. If not it could cause rattling and unwanted noise (happened to me). Ultimately it doesn't matter what downpipes you put on as sound will be the same. Only difference is fitment. In terms of performance, get intakes that route the filters to the kidney grills. Otherwise your car will just be sucking in hot air from the engine bay. I'm running the intakes, downpipes, and eisenmann race w/ an OFT burble tune and the sounds are crazy...

This is good info thanks. I'm going to consider 2nd set of stock cats. I want to avoid that rattle at all costs.

Kong how long have you had the burble tune? They sound cool I'm just afraid of potential harm it can cause.

I believe the ams downpipes are the way to go if you go aftermarket Iím liking the idea of the decatted stock Downpipes , also the burble tune does no harm the the engine , I think it would destroy your cats but those will be gone soon

I might try the burble tune spring/summer time. I'm going to more than likely do the downpipes then.

I have heard mixed reviews about the burble tune. It's very popular and I think meisterschaft gtc + downpipes and burble would sound nuts.

I heard the Eisenmann race full exhaust in person and it was incredible I wanted that setup right then and there, Iím sure the GTC sounds similar, for a car that sounds meh in stock form a aftermarket exhaust completely transforms them

I really like the Burble myself but only minimal , Iím not looking for that crazy excessive pops and bangs all the time I think that would get annoying , just some nice crackle after WOT, having something to switch between tunes would be ideal

Yeah I agree. I believe MHD tuning is working in the burble for this platform. You should be able to control the amount of burble you want through an app if it gets released.

I've had the burble tune for over a month now. The burbles only come on when you really get into it, so it's not all the time. I don't think you need to worry about anything

Yeah my car is literally only driven once every week or 2 as it's more of a weekend car for me. Drone is not bad to me, but I have a pretty high tolerance for noise haha

My buddy who I purchased the e-race system from purchased the meisterschaft GTC after. E-race is more high pitched, while the GTC has more low-down rumble. Surprising how different the systems sound. The electronic valves on the GTC are super nice too. I'm planning on eventually welding in some electronic valves in my e-race down the road.
