Eisenmann Exhaust - Delete Center Muffler

Hi everyone,

I'm new here...from Brazil...I just have received my eisenmann rear section exhaust and installed it in my brand new black 1M...but I didn't saw so much difference on the noise...and I don't want to put a midpipe, because if I do that, I'll loose my factory warranty, and I don't want that...

So, I want to know, what will happen if I delete the center muffler??Will the noise get louder?But I will loose/gain power, or neither of it?

Thanks for the help...

you are right the 1M Eisenmann isnt very loud which is unusual for them I was disappointed when I first heard it myself. I did fall in love with the sound of the Meisterschaft GT system! If you cut your muffler your car is gonna sound stupid loud, not a nice loud, but a stupid truck loud. if the exhaust wasn't specifically designed as straight pipes like the Meisterschaft was, my guess is it will fall into the stupid loud category if you cut them out...

either return or sell the eisenmann and get the meisterschaft that is my recommedation! cutting it up is probably a bad idea imho

Did you go with a Race or Sport performance level? The system does need to break in and takes about 1200 miles.

Nate is absolutely right. When I first got the Eisenmann Sport I was shocked at how quiet it was. 1,500miles later it really has changed dramatically! I really do love everything about the exhaust sound/construction/look etc., the tips are gorgeous!

Any one know how much louder the Race gets after the break-in?
I'm about to pull the trigger on exhaust; definitely wouldn't want to spend well over 2k for something just slightly louder than stock.

Great choice Tchelo!!!
Can you post some pics??
Do you think the tips are too short and maybe the pipes can be seen through the difusser??

Thanks in advance!

Eisenmann makes a straight pipe called a "soundpipe", maybe you should look that up! I'm waiting for my full eisenmann w soundpipe to arrive in a couple of weeks!

I also have the Eisenmann cat-back (race). It initially didn't sound much different, but improved with break-in miles. I have a new prototype mid pipe that was installed yesterday, so I will see how the sound level is when I pick it up tomorrow.

I currently have an eisenmann rear race muffler. Mated with a full catless exhaust but still with resonators on the midpipe and sounds very nice.

It is very loud because it is a full exhaust but not crazy loud like a straight through exhaust with the meisterchaft muffler.

If your going to do a full exhaust i prefer going with a muffler and resonators because when throttling it gets very loud.

But then again we all get us to things and i was looking into the miesterchaft because i really could care less about the cops haha.

The "soundpipe" is the removing of the secondary cats, midpipe as they say.
I don't think this will cause warranty problems.

Something that Ilia@IND said in the "1M Exhaust system database" thread that I thought would be helpful to this discussion (I bolded the relevant parts):

So it sounds like you probably shouldn't opt for the the Eisenmann sport exhaust if your goal is to get an exhaust that is louder than stock?
