    Custom 3inch Exhust with Xpipe R230 M156 SL63

    There arent really alot of options out there for the R230 SL's in terms of aftermarket exhust downpipes. I reached out to many vendors to get a full 3inch exhust with an Xpipe to mate with my MBH headers, but none of them were able to get this done for me and some of them needed the car to have the exhust customised.

    I previously had some caragraphic straight downpipes that retain the stock 2.75 diameter (SL63 stock diameter is larger than the C63 stock diameter from factory) that were mated to my MBH headers and connected to the rear resonators. Here is the thread I created a while back
    http://mbworld.org/forums/sl55-amg-s...d-project.html

    Ever since boosting the engine and especially after the the 3.0L SC upgrade, there would be some drone between 2-2.5 RPM. In addition, the two piece carahraghic downpipes would always cause exhust leaks that I have to regularly visit my local exhust shop to retighten the connection, lots of headechClick here to enlarge. I was advised by Weistec to switch to a 3inchh exhust and add an Xpipe and that the power pick-up in terms of HP would increase. Leaks are never good and will sometimes effect the engine's air cycle which will result in HP loss

    Anyway, a friend of mine opened a shop about year ago called "GT-Customiser" in Qatar. They can do all sorts of jobs from carbon fiber molding, to customizing larger turbos, exhusts, intercooler...etc. He prmised me a Full 3inch Exhust with an Xpipe and without any resonators and no more leaksClick here to enlarge. The car is currently being worked on. You can follow thier top notch work on instagram, I included a photo screen of thier instagram account.

    The best thing is that I am getting all this great work for freeClick here to enlarge.The car will be done by tomorrow. And this exhust will be available later for purchase to all SL63's and SL55 (without headers) for anybody intrested.I'll post up some additional photos of the complete exhust and get some video.

    Hi man, how ya been?

    you wont have problems with your caragraphic headers. I installed cargraphic headers for four diffrent C63's. Never had any problems.

    The problem that I was having was that my MBH headers were mated through a set of adapters to connect with one set of caragraphic downpipes. The other set is connected with the first set through some weak connectors that my last installer conducted for me. Therefore, I had 4 spots that were leaking.

    Caragraphic are not to blame. My setup was BS lol.

    I am now at the shop I'll upload photos pretty soon of the completed exhust. Its really looking good.
