The tips are side by side and sweep upward at the same angle as your bumper. DTM for other exhast parts is not an option. As these parts are no longer available and no aftermarker co. makes them. For reference the header was short and was the equal lenght style. This looks like four snakes tangled up. The tubes are all twisted around each other. This is to give each cyl. exhast tube the same length to the center exhast section. As the one nearest the front of the car has a greater distance to travel and the one nearest the firewall the shortest. This ensures each cyl. is tuned the same. Critical on a 365hp race car. Not so crictical on our cars unless you have crossed over to the 300+HP line. Anything below this and these headers will make you lose Hp. DTM stands for Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft. Translated means Dutch touring car championship. Or refered to sometimes by english speaking people (US,UK) as German touring car championship. As there are other similiar races BTCC British touring car championship. Australia has there own. Canada, US also. Think of it as stock looking cars with formula one technology underneath! Looks are deceiving........
when I'm looking for DTM exhaust tips, what am I looking for and what is DTM for other exhaust parts(like header)?
thanks for anything...
