*** bootmod3 OBD WiFi Agent device is not required to use the bootmod3 platform. It is a convenience option that removes the need for using a laptop in the car when using bootmod3's features. If you're looking to simply load a tune on the car without much datalogging and monitoring then using your laptop is the ticket for you.
*** DME removal from the engine bay is NOT REQUIRED

Restrictions in the exhaust system robs horsepower and torque especially on turbocharged cars. Thus, removing as much exhaust flow restrictions will increase horsepower and torque significantly. The factory catalytic converter found in the factory downpipe is a big culprit of this and is a major exhaust flow restriction. The factory catalytic converter is made up of catalyst material formed into "honeycomb" weaves. Exhaust gas must pass through these tiny "honeycomb" weaves on their way to the exhaust system thus causing a major exhaust flow restriction. It also causes turbulence after the catalytic converter which causes the exhaust flow to slow down (which increases restriction). By replacing the factory downpipe/catalytic converter with our Competition Series 4" Catless Downpipe, more power is unleashed! Our dyno testing has shown around 14-16whp average peak gains and upwards of 24wtq peak gains! While peak horsepower is nice to look at on dyno charts, what's more important is the power curve. If you look at the dyno charts, torque hits MUCH earlier and harder. The torque curve is BROADER throughout the RPM band. More usable power. You have more time spent in the RPM band with higher horsepower and torque. This equates to faster turbo spool up (less turbocharger lag) and better throttle response. Bottom line, faster. You will feel the difference instantly.
The factory downpipe utilizes a flex bellow section that allows the exhaust system to move. This eliminates undue stress on the exhaust components like the exhaust system, downpipe, turbocharger and exhaust manifold. Many of our competitors do not feel it is important to keep this. While you do not see any adverse affects right away, over time, the stresses caused by not having a flex section and having a rigid exhaust system will cause premature wear and tear. Any stress failures like cracks will form quicker than usual on exhaust manifolds and exhaust components. Also, without a flex section, the exhaust system cannot properly deflect impact. Especially on lowered cars, whenever the exhaust system contacts the ground, the entire system gets pushed up. Without a flex, you can imagine how much stress is put into exhaust components like the exhaust manifold when the exhaust is pushed upwards. We fully understand that durability of our products is important. Thus, like BMW, we incorporate a flex section into our downpipe. Our flex sections are 100% stainless steel (cheap flex sections only have stainless steel center braids and steel caps) to ensure corrosion resistance.
One of the main features of our B46/B48 downpipe is the CNC machined solid stainless steel billet ball joint. The factory downpipe uses a press formed process to produce the "ball" joint to connect to the factory exhaust. This process can be done very inexpensively when done in large productions runs. Unfortunately, the drawback of this press formed "ball" joint is that the interior of the pipe also mimics the outside. When exhaust flows through a pipe, the majority of the exhaust flow tends to stay on the outer edges of the pipe. Thus, when exhaust flows into the "ball" section, it goes into the valley created by the "ball" joint and then back up the other side. This creates tremedous amounts of turbulence in the exhaust flow right at that section. Turbulence in turn, slows down exhaust flow velocities as well as increase back-pressure. It's a well known fact that with turbocharged cars, you want the least amount of back-pressure while still maintaining high exhaust flow velocities. Why? Because low back-pressure and high velocities allow the turbocharger to spin faster. This equates to reducing turbocharger lag and faster spool times. Throttle response is also improved. We had originally thought to use the same press form process to manufacture our downpipes. However, very quickly we noticed this flaw to the process and decided to CNC a solid stainless steel billet "ball" joint. This allowed us to keep the factory connection while keeping the interior of the ball smooth. This allows the exhaust to flow unrestricted through the "ball" joint. While this CNC solid stainless steel billet was very expensive to manufacturer, our motto at ER is "Performance, no compromises". Our in house testing showed that we did indeed have real world improvements with this new CNC billet "ball" joint and thus worth the extra costs. This is why the N26 downpipes do cost a little bit more than the N20 downpipes as the N20 downpipes do not have the ball joint system but use a traditional slip-fit design which is cheaper for us to manufacturer. The pictures below show the factory "ball" joint cut in half (to show in the interior) versus our CNC solid stainless steel billet "ball" joint.
Since we are able to reproduce the factory "ball" joint v-band connector, our downpipes are designed to fit perfectly with either the factory exhaust system or your aftermarket exhaust system. There are no compatibility issues whatsover. The downpipes will come by default with brushed finish.
