Smile Re: W126 Exhaust Performance Upgrades

Yes.. Yes and Yes..... but I had queried the wisdom of altering the Exhausts on modern Cars. Back in the olden days freeing up exhausts by replacing Factory items , built down to a price, produced results... but today ?
All exhausts are designed to comply and are part of a whole computer controlled loop.

At $2683 landed here I think my idea will go on the back burner for now! That doesnít include installation, rear pipes or tips. Valve-tronic is extra too! All for the sake of not struggling to fit the rear muffler and tips in a short space. And I can probably live without the open (and illegal) system that valve-tronic would allow.

I was quite impressed with the home build on the 500SLC. How are you stainless steel welding skills?

Most decent exhaust shops can build you a very decent performance exhaust. Find out were the racing or drag guys go would be a good place to start or the show car guys as they are very picky.

Yes I think Iíll just be sourcing the parts and having them weld it together. Not full stainless either. Probably just downpipes and mufflers.
