Although we don’t recommend doing this, nor do we see the benefit, you will find countless articles online about drivers removing these flaps from their exhaust setups. The reason for this is to make sure the exhaust is wide open 24/7, but with Mercedes-Benz, the use of DYNAMIC SELECT solves this problem. There is no need to remove them because you can control them simply by switching to and from Sport+ mode. If you really want to get the most out of your Mercedes-Benz exhaust, consider upgrading to the optional Performance Exhaust System. From January 2004, the ML 55 AMG was fitted with rear parking sensors (‘Parktronic’) and rain-sensing wipers. Released in November 2001, the Mercedes W163 Series II (W163.II) ML 55 AMG introduced additional safety equipment and cosmetic updates.
Jack up the car and soak the bottom exhaust manifold nuts from the bottom with a WD-40 . Also spray the bolts holding the front pipe by the exhaust manifold and by the resonators. This C63 S Edition 1 coupe has been equipped with an exhaust from Akrapovic, giving that twin-turbo V-8 some new life. Those deep bellows and crackles sound like they’re coming straight from one of AMG’s GT3 cars. In the world of aftermarket exhaust systems, Meisterschaft by GTHaus sits near the pinnacle of incredible-sounding exhaust systems. Countless hours of R&D pave the way to achieve the perfect pitch from each vehicle and application. The result is an exhaust that is well-tuned and delivers an aggressive and exotic note. The AMG Performance exhaust system ensures an even more emotional engine sound in the interior at the push of a button.
Sometimes, however, automakers’ decisions don’t make much sense at all. If the exhaust isn’t really there, why the hell do you need to make it look like it is? And don’t say conventions, because that’s about as helpful as insisting that an electric car should have a grille when there’s literally no need for it. If you disconnect the exhaust valve electric connector and run the vehicle without this connection, the valve will stay open assuming you disconnected the connector while the valve was open. It’s unlikely you will get an error code on your dash but the vehicle may notice that the valve is disconnected and think it’s jammed and therefore reduce power. The exhaust system components for all AMG’s in the same model year are identical.
They effortlessly embody what you would imagine and expect of a sport exhaust. As a result of long-standing and passionate development, it is not just simply an exhaust or product, that we sell, but our calling, mission and now a duty. All the research we have done indicates AMC originally used this q-clamp on all the joint to joint locations on the AMX except where the tips were clamped on the tail pipes. Although this clamp is not one of our reproductions we have compared them to original and they are an excellent reproduction of the orginal clamp that outfitted the AMX. They come zinc plated and are available with any of our AMX exhaust systems. Unfortunately, the era when those numbers were related to engine displacement is long-gone.
Depending on the driving condition, the driver receives acoustic feedback, ranging from sonorous acoustics, during a more constant and quiet ride, to a sporty and louder sound (Mercedes says “emotional”) when accelerating. Moreover, the intake system and exhaust system are precisely matched to the respective engine load, Mercedes claims. Depending on the driving condition, the exhaust flaps are switched accordingly- primarily at high loads – in order to ensure optimum flow. Putting it into Sport plus, also changes the exhaust from “balanced” mode to “powerful,” which brings us back to sound. I was so enamored by it that I reached out to Mercedes-Benz to learn more about what the engineers did to retain such a throaty and loud exhaust despite modern emissions standards and turbocharging. All our exhausts systems are “Made in Germany”, from stainless steel (Krupp-Steel), as are our clamps. The tailpipes are chromed, thus a long, low maintenance gloss is ensured. All performance modifications and installations are at the customer’s own risk.
So the simplest solution is to go for a bigger engine as a replacement for what you already have. It’ll be a quick solution in getting a louder sound regarding you can deal with all the common difficulties. Autoweek participates in various affiliate marketing programs, which means we may get paid commissions on editorially chosen products purchased through our links to retailer sites. For the straight-line bits, I just set the driving mode to comfort and listened to the background rumble. For the curvy bits, I dialed it to Sport Plus and chucked it into corners like a toddler in a power wheel. It’s not just sound, of course, handling, too, considering the car’s size, more than 187 inches long, is impressive. Plenty of grip from the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and generally good responses to inputs. Furthermore, the seats provide plenty of lumbar support and adjustable upper bolstering as well.
I’m off to JP exhausts in a few weeks and telling them what I want based on what you guys say on here would be most helpful. I can see your point, but if you want more noise thats about the only way your going to get it, you cant replace the cat with a de cat pipe as the ecu reads before and after cat lambda readings. There are kits around to fool the ecu but im not sure if there would be one for your car. The first project – an aerodynamic body kit for the ML 63 AMG, which was called “INFERNO”. Subtle sense of style, conciseness, harmony, and powerful energy of the winner – these are the concepts that we have tried to integrate in the new project. Black Series by Mercedes-Benz was the inspiration for us to create this body kit. Gold Supplier is a premium membership for suppliers on Alibaba.com.

A bunch of aftermarket BMW specific X-pipes are available, as well as universal X-pipes with similar diameter tubing as the OEM BMW exhaust system. Therefore, installation should be a breeze given that any fairly experienced local muffler shop could easily do the installation for less than $200 USD.
One week and maybe 150 miles later, I re-sanded the rear half of the pipe because of where a piece of failed masking had ruined the paint. After re-masking and re-painting, I did a few light coats and was satisfied with the end result. If there are a lot of wires and frame bits in the way, and there will be especially near the engine, you’re probably not going to get the pipe covered perfectly. Rub those pipes all up and down and make sure the surface is consistent. Depending on how rusty/nasty your exhaust pipe is, you’ll want to sand that sucker down with medium-fine to very fine sand paper. Whatever color the pipe was before you started, you want that thing to look like shiny bare metal and be super smooth before you start painting. One of the bags I’d used to cover the engine ended up getting blown in the wind right onto my wet-paint exhaust, ruining a visually obvious section, and forcing me to re-do.
Carefully selected combinations meet the highest standards of quality.

Wherever the Mercedes-AMG G 63 shows its face, it is met with nothing but awe. Its passion, perfection and power make every journey feel like a victory.
Typically, most enthusiasts install a catback exhaust system, which replaces everything from the catalytic converter to the exhaust tip. A catback exhaust system is typically the best bang-for-buck option if you want to upgrade your exhaust system, while also dramatically changing how your car sounds. For naturally aspirated vehicles, the exhaust system typically features a header, mid-pipe, and rear-pipe. Another important job of the exhaust system is to regulate exhaust gas flow. With less exhaust gas flow, the piston has to work extra hard to push exhaust gases out of the cylinder, which ultimately leads to reduced power output for your car. If your car’s exhaust components are failing, you’ll likely see a decrease in fuel mileage and your car might not pass vehicle emissions tests. Exhaust components such as the catalytic converter play a crucial role in decreasing the emissions output of your vehicle, and shouldn’t be removed for any vehicle which is used on the road.
