Exhaust

Build007 1983 BMW E21 320 S52 189

As shown in previous posts this car initially had aftermarket headers. We built a complete exhaust for them and actually HATED the sound.

To solve this we ripped them out in favor of modified OBD2 exhaust manifolds. It tamed it down a good bit and got rid of the rasp we were experiencing.

We also decided to use a different muffler and location given the change in manifold.
