Re: 135i exhaust onto 130i

I finally got this done. It is awesome! Custom Y pipe made up to replace mid section and standard 135i backbox modded to fit by local company. No drone, subtle at low revs and raspy and loud under load, and poppy and burbly on overrun couldn't be happier. Well done mate! :D I think it's the best se...

I bent my hose and cable tied it. Worked a treat, and sounds noticeably better at low rpms.

Btw, little off topic, I followed a new RS3 in to work today and holy sh*t did it sound good!
If you modify your exhaust on your 130i it will also sound very good... :wink:

Re: 130i remapping - anything to be gained?

I'm always intrigued by a remap for my 130's but never tried one yet, there is a serious lack of UK dyno data for mapped 130's which doesn't help. Price for what is often just a generic tune flashed on rather than custom to each car I think is a bit steep as well Ian Yeah thats why i went to a very...

Re: 130i remapping - anything to be gained?

167mph, that's proper going for a hatchback 8) What fuel did you have on the Dyno? 20bhp and 40Nm is quite a lot. And to be honest, on a stock car high octane makes it feel noticeably stronger from 6500 too? Any idea if the remapper you've been to did the 130i cup cars as well? Haha yeah the car is...

Re: 130i remapping - anything to be gained?

I have had my 130i remapped and got about 20hp and,more important,40nm extra torq .... this is together with a custom exhaust and performance intake. Especially the extra torq is noticable in the midrange (from 2300 rpm onwards) and the extra peakpower hangs on a few hundred more rpm after stock it ...

Re: 135i exhaust onto 130i

I did the same on my first 130i inspired by you, but never got the chance to record it. And I'm going to do the same on my current 130i :) 135i backbox + resonator delete = perfect sound. Good to hear mate!! Yes it is...especially for the little money it costs to do this... Mark. Off topic but wher...
