: I've got a 98 M3 w/ the Dinan chip and cold air intake. Am concidering the Supersprint or Dinan exhaust. They claim 10-15% HP & Torque increase (that would equal 24+) which seems like it would be very noticable. I'm looking for more low end torque, 0-80 acceleration speed rather than top end speed. Would an exhaust system quench my thirst? Which one has the best results? Are there any other methods to get more low end power and acceleration without dumping a grip of cash?
I'm running the Tri Flo system on my 97 and have been really happy with the sound and build quality of the exhaust. Its a bit pricey but you should only have to do it once. Everyone claims that the supersprint system is quieter, so that may be something to think about too? As far as power gains from the system. Not much, I've heard 4-5 hp at the wheels and it sounds right. But my car is bone stock, so you might feel it more with your mods. Good luck with whatever route you go.
