    New viscous coupling too stiff

    How strange - I've experienced all of these elements at my local ECP, long wait times in particular... ! I always swear I'll never return, but for some things I always do!

    Yes, I'll be keeping all that's removed in case I need to reverse the mod at any point.

    No, the centre box is staying, that's for certain. Just a case of whether I experiment with removing one 'scuba' first, then the second if required.

    540i Exhaust Mod Options

    Thanks for the link Dan. Yes, removing both at the back would be the simplest way, just a little concerned that it would be too loud, hence considering removing the second of the two first. Impossible to know until it's done. Decisions, decisions....

    Scuba tank, in other words both of those in my photo, gotcha now. Do you think that by just removing the last of the pair there won't be much difference? As I originally said above, could try one first, then the second if necessary. And, as per your comment, their advice was not to remove the mid 'Y' piece silencer section either.

    540i Exhaust Mod Options

    Thanks for your comment Dan. I didn't actually realise that there were two separate boxes. The first a sort of 'dead end' with the second being the last and exiting to the tail pipe. I assumed that the term 'back box delete' meant removing both boxes, not just the last of the two. We're thinking that take the last one off initially and if that doesn't have the desired result, the first one can then be removed as well.

    Took the car to a local exhaust specialist today to get ideas and suggestions on how to extract just a little more V8 rumble from the exhaust note. With the car up on the four poster it was suggested that to keep it subtle, but noticeable, delete the last muffler in the back box system and straight pipe it from the box in the foreground. Has anyone here done this to their 540?

    I don't think so, from what I've read here.
