Thumbs down I found out something about the BPM Mid-Pipe Tonight that Sucks BUTT!!!

The silencer is not the traditional "Straight Through" Design I.E."Cherry Bomb".

It has some auger looking spiral piece of metal with about a 10mm pipe that shoots straight through!

I was appauled! That cannot be good for gasses trying to get the hell out of the exhaust track!

Maybe this is old news, but I was one of the first guys in the nation that had the BPM, and it took me well over a year to find out. I am just going to have the local muffler shop straight pipe the silencer when they weld on my Apexi N-1 that is sitting in my garage.

BPM's downpipe is pimp $hit though. It is so beautiful. Just can't slam them all to hell!

That "auger-looking spiral piece" is something they used to advertise as a venturi stack or something.

Believe me..unless you are nearing the 400 hp mark on your car, this isn't helping or hurting one way or another...except in the noise dep't.

Adam, I would tend to disagree with you on that one. That thing must have at least 7 turns in it in a 12-18 inch span.

It has to hurt the performance. IMO. I am pushing some HP too...BTW.

OK ya lost me, the title says mid-pipe, but by reading your post it sounds like you are talking about the backbox on a twister series.

Uh, that's a negative Ghost Rider, I am referring to the midpipe. I explicitly stated the silencer in the midpipe.

I have the BPM "GT" Turbo back.
