BMW 3-Series Performance Exhaust Systems

A car model surviving production for three decades-and-counting says a lot about its quality and reliability. This is the story of the ever classic BMW 3 Series, the ‘awe car’. Whether you’ve only had your 3 Series for a year or yours is a first generation 1984 model, you can increase your pride of ownership with one simple trick: install a custom exhaust system. What the good fellows over at BMW do not tell you is that the stock exhaust system on your 3 Series can only support their pre-determined maximum power at specific rpm ranges. No matter how hard you work the engine, you cannot coerce it into releasing more power, except by replacing the stock exhaust with a custom one. What makes custom exhausts so efficient? Because they are specially designed to unleash all the passive engine power locked in the car system.

For the best quality 3 Series custom exhausts, check out CARiD, one of the leading auto performance parts dealers in the nation. CARiD has a wide variety of fully custom designed exhaust systems for all 3 Series models. Best exhaust brands to go for when you need to infuse your 3 Series with unrivalled power and torque gains are Borla, AFE, Magnaflow and Flowmaster. These give as much as 15% more horsepower and up to 10% gains in torque. An extra benefit you will get with a custom exhaust is better fuel economy. Your BMW will be able to generate more power at low rpm, meaning you do not need to accelerate every time you want more engine power. As a result, you will be able to drive longer distances than before on the same amount of fuel.

    Regardless of whether you're shopping for a simple replacement muffler that delivers original equipment (OE) sound and performance or an upgraded muffler which provides a deeper growl with increased power through freer exhaust flow, you'll see choices between "direct fit" mufflers and "universal" mufflers. In this article, we'll help you understand the differences...
    It has been a battle of the ages to make exhaust sound like it should. Having less bends or turns will not only improve the sound but also performance. A custom exhaust is always an option for the race inspired and spirited weekend warriors. Our manufactures offer everything needed to build a custom exhaust to your preference.
    Headers are installed because the stock exhaust manifolds usually flow poorly. An exhaust header has individual tubes for each exhaust port, allowing each exhaust pulse to flow unobstructed from the cylinder head. The tubes on headers are usually larger in diameter than the runners on an exhaust manifold and the tubes are mandrel bent for gradual radius bends.
