Finally a managed to do a short video on the new custom stainless steel exhaust system i had fitted from the Tri-Y's back using two Magnaflow S/Steel mufflers (centre and rear) with a crossover in the rear 17inch muffler and finished off with twin dumpers that are discretely semi hidden under the rear AMG bumper skirt.
I am extremely pleased how the sound turned out with its deep rumble and no drone and no raspy barking at all and it really sounds awesome at idle and when driving as the revs climb and when you back off and when cruising steady it goes pretty quiet, but as soon as you are back on the peddle it lets you know especially when it kicks down a gear. In fact it sounds good no matter what you are doing!!!
Anyway check it out below in the small vid i put together using a gero3 GoPro mounted to the inside rear side window and with all the windows up otherwise the wind noise is terrible with the crap internal camera mic.
I bought a decent external Rode miniature mic but the USB adaptor cable i purchased did not work unfortunately and i will have to buy a proper GoPro brand adapter cable before i can mount the mic at the rear of the car with the 6m extension cable i also purchased to do this. Once i have that sorted i will do another decent video. This Vid was just a trial run and the sound came out nowhere near as good as it sounds live.
I also had the white coupe fitted up with the same custom system but the rear muffler case is only 14inch long (versus 17inch in the SEL) so that system sounds a bit louder that the SEL and when i get time i will record and post a Vid of that system as well (with a decent camera mic sorted by then)
Play the Vid on a decent sound system with volume turned up!!!
Then perhaps add some feedback comments in the youtube Vid on what you reckon.
The car feels a lot more edgy and responsive as well as loosing a lot of weight from removing the factory system underneath.
I think the custom 2.25inch exhaust has made a noticeable difference with definitely no loss of low down torque at all. The rear muffler is 2.50inch.
