Does MPE exhaust weigh less

Whats the difference in weight from stock exhaust to MPE , surely its got to be a lighter upgrade and not just sound and performance.

The Rexus shaves about a kilo off but few more kilos would be ace !

I cannot see the M Performance Exhaust having a substaintial amount of weight savings since it still has a giant muffler.

Also the M Performance does not provide any performance gains. It is strictly a sound improvement upgrade. Hence why I advise people to skip the M Performance exhaust and go with our Sport Cat Downpipe. It's cheaper, CEL free, and provides both performance gains and sound improvement. Check it out!

I'm considering this option!

Thank you for mentioning it.

Bobby should have mentioned that our Muffler Bypass Exhaust System is 14 lbs lighter than the stock exhaust!

Yes you can! Our downpipes are compatible with any exhaust system.

It will not pass smog in California as it is not CARB certified.

It certainly does not! It adds power and sound regardless of the flap orientation.

If you are looking for sound, get REMUS exhaust it sounds the best in my opinion

If you are looking for performance get catless or catted downpipes


If i remember correctly the MPE weighs less but it is nothing substantial

Is this available for the M2C? Any deals on a complete system? Zip is 43214 if that matters.
