Project "Kermit": Poot, poot the exhaust...

The one ball mod was fun while it lasted. After swapping out the headers I got from Eurotuner, exhaust note was noticeably louder. I think after a while, the muffler gave way cause it started to sound broken. I did enjoy the loud pops and bangs that came with it. Sounded very racer! *laughs* But it's a trait with the Mini Cooper S, the pops and bangs...

Time to move on to something a little more docile. I went to get a custom made exhaust setup on Saturday. Got some new exhaust tips while I was at it too. The new setup consists of a resonator in the middle, 2.5 inch stainless steel piping, split into two 2 inch pipes that lead to twin small mufflers. Hopefully this will keep the weight down too.



It's very quiet now. Closer to the stock twin mufflers. You only notice something different when you gun it, which is exactly what I am looking for. Blue tips give it that JDM titanium look...

Hi, my first time commenting here. Did you get it done in Sunway? I think I saw your car in a workshop there but I can't be too sure.
