    Flieben /Leistung Autohaus 500e/e500 exhaust kit pre-order

    ADMIN EDIT: Link to old thread with R&D info, photos, etc, etc: http://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5095

    We have finally finished our other exhaust projects and plan in doing a 2017 run of the 500e exhaust.

    For Pre-order participants only 2015 prices stay the same.

    Front section with test pipes $1500
    Rear section factory turndown $1500.00
    Brabus style $1500.00

    We are ordering enough to keep 10 of each on the shelf to build inventory. Inventory prices will be slightly higher in comparison to the Pre-Order prices.

    Regular price will be
    Front section $1580.00
    Turn down $1600.00
    Brabus style $1600.00

    25% deposit is due for pre-orders to hold your place and secure 2015 pricing.

    Catalysts pricing 50 State legal $586.00 these are made to order and require a 2-3 week lead time.

    Deposits due March 31st.

    Exhausts will be ready to ship Mid April to early May.

    You can either PayPal me direct (5thscaleracer@verizon.net) or contact Matt at Leistung Autohaus and place a deposit with him sales@leistungautohaus.com.

    Any questions let me know
    Thanks
    JC

    What is the price for front section with bolt-in catalysts, in addition to the test pipes? Would there be a price difference for 49-state cats vs 50-state?

    The front sections come with test pipes, the catalysts are built to order let me verify current pricing.

    CA cats are more expensive let me verify 2017 cat prices.

    The cats are 600CPI units we run two in parallel format to optimize volume.

    What does the rear section consist of? I have a y pipe. I would be interested in a muffler?

    It comes with its own Y pipe which guarantees that the rear muffler hangs correctly.

    Re: Flieben /Leistung Autohaus 500e/e500 exhaust kit pre-order

    The exhaust looks promising, are there any Dyno results? What is the smallest Diameter the tubing gets and the exhaust looks crush-bent is that correct?

    Unfortunately no dyno results yet.

    I had a few volunteers from the previous bunch to dyno their car but no results yet.

    The pipe is 3" they are mandrel bent the crush section is about 1/16" indented to clear the subframe. It does not restrict flow in any way since it's done in a straight section.

    The choice was to hang the pipe low under the subframe or tuck it nice and tight to the body to prevent the exhaust from snagging or possibly scraping on a lowered 500e.

    The front section is a 2.25" y pipe and joins to a 3" oval bent pipe.

    The cat section splits into dual 2.25" sections.

    Just trying to make sure I understand the pricing. For complete system front, back and Cats would $3,586. Is that correct?

    FWIW... the factory pipes are a similar design, some straight sections have an indentation for clearance... the crossover pipe from the driver side exhaust manifold is really crushed (need to remove heat shield to see this), and the stock muffler inlet pipe also has a flattened area for subframe clearance in the same area as the Leistung.

    Side note on dyno testing: After getting good dyno data with the stock exhaust, the car should have the LH adaptation reset and then be driven for several hundred miles with the new Leistung system to allow adaptation with the modified exhaust flow... THEN put on the dyno for the 'after' testing. And, no other changes should be made besides the exhaust swap...

    Re: Flieben /Leistung Autohaus 500e/e500 exhaust kit pre-order

    I'd be happy to be a test rat and pre and post dyno my car after install. I have a local closed cell dyno that if I go to just a few days apart on days with similar weather and temps should give a nice baseline/gain reading. I just need to get my car first....hopefully should be here by Wednesday.

    The construction and quality looks great, and as nice as the Brabus style tips look, it would look even better if we had a cutout for the tips in the rear valence. I think I will probably go with the turned down tips instead.

    Any sound clips available?

    Fox Germany offers cat-back systems. Photos and details are in JC220's owner thread:

    http://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9507

    Scroll through his thread between post #'s 395 and 425 for additional info on pricing and vendors.

    Should be under ~$1000 USD with shipping to USA but you'd have to contact the vendor in Europe to inquire about shipping to this side of the pond.

    Fox exhaust quality is questionable. The SS canisters I have used them on other projects one being a 01 Audi s4. After 40k miles the exhaust packing started to fall apart and developed a loud rattle internally.

    They are defiantly not Remus or Sebring quality status.

    You can think of them as the flowmaster of Germany.

    Btw the S4 had bigger turbos and 700ish HP. So the mufflers were probably not intended for that much power.

    Exhaust was later swapped for a milltek.
