M2 exhaust/ M1235i

Post by JackThelad » Mon Jul 16, 2018 4:26 pm

Hi guys,

Curiousity kicked in, how does the M2 exhaust sound different to the m235i/m135i when it’s the same engine.

I.e the croaking noise when you let off the gas but the 135/235 don’t do it.

I’ve realised a lot of m2s do it

Skip towards the end of the video @45secs

Hmm I wonder if the same exhaust system minus the box would make it sound the same

I wouldn't expect it would make much difference, a big part of the m2 exhaust is the fuel back box I believe.
Coming Soon: M140 MG, 5DR, 8ZF With some extras :lol:

define 'same engine'

You’ve an M2, I’m not trying to undermine your purchase lol. Just stating they both have the same N55 block, the pistons are different and the crank but the vast majority of the ‘engine’ is the same. :lol:
