I have fitted a scorpion back box and a dave f (KN) induction kit to my 328.

Scorpion back box is lovely sounding very very deep exhaust note system, but over 5000rpm it sorta drowns out.

Thinking of removing the silencers out the midsection BUT DO NOT WANT TO REMPOVE MY CATS, ive heard plenty of decatted 328s and its not the sound i want to go for.

Anyone removed silencers on their e36 6 cyclinder before and got good results??????

It should be titled for example :- 1996 E36 328i - Exhaust question

or something similar

and yes removing the sillencer will make it alot more louder

chaseman did you have to replace the silencers with pipes or isit just a case of removing the out pipe casing or the baffle inside the pipes?

Thanks mate, but I genuinely hate it now! It's exhausting driving around in a DD like this one. I love the sound, but on a dedicated track car. I hope to fit a sound resonator soon and quite down the things a bit. :hihi It will still sound nice (I hope) but a bit less decibels!

Well, if that's the sound you're looking for, decat and straight pipes all the way to the rear muffler. But you should also consider long trips and daily driving, it might be a bit too much. Especially under load, between 2000-3000RPM. That deep tone in low revs is so strong that it makes the rear windows vibrate.

Its a lovely sound but in a convertable with the roof down probly wouldnt hear myself think! I reckon m3 headers and removing the exhaust silencers should give me a bit more of a deeper grunt, hopefully

It will definitely be enough, imo.
