    Does anyone have video of what this exhaust sounds like?

    I believe there are links to recordings in the appropriate thread. Just need the dyno plots and we're 100% good.

    I have looked into the m119 but the problem with doing cams is ignition control.

    You will need to be able to do some sort of ignition and mild fuel control.

    AFAIK, there is pretty much no way to advance ignition timing on the M119... we're stuck with the factory maps.

    Fuel control is doable, at least to a small extent.

    Hagmann's cams are NLA, I think dBilas may still do regrinds, but new billets would be nice. Details on Hagmann/dbilas offerings are in this old thread:
    https://www.500eboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1000

    A dyno-proven gain of 20-30hp on a 5L would be nice if it didn't require the heads to come off for installation.

    How easy of an install is an exhaust system? Do I need welding skills? Thanks.

    Everything should be bolt-on, no welding required. It will be much easier if you have a lift.

    Removing the old exhaust may be a challenge, particularly separating the resonator from the rear of the stock catalysts, especially if they have not been taken apart in decades.

    The hardest part of the install will likely be the removal of the old parts especially if the vehicle has spent time on salty roads.

    My exhaust it designed to be a 100% bolt on.

    Front to back with a lift it takes 30min to hang the system and about 20-30 min to adjust everything so it all lines up.

    The ieay is you hang entire system. Position the rear muffler then that Gutenberg’s from the front of the car working your way towards the back.

    The hardest part is the y pipes by the manifold those need some ground clearance so you can rotate and pull down.
    the second hard part is right after the cat one is a slip fit the other is a flange with seal. The slip fit will be tough it might even brreak off due to the rust build up.

    I have 1 exhaust kit left.

    Front with Catalyst and Rear section with turn down tips.

    Tying to clean out old stuff so if anyone is interested i am willing to ship this out for free to anyone in the USA.

    for international buyers i will cover up to $100.00 for shipping costs.

    Are there plans for an additional production run, or is this it, forever ?!?

    I think this will be it...

    The 500e market is dead there has been no requests for more of these kits.

    But I will always have the ability to make more in the future if there is enough demand.

    I will always have the assembly jigs and fixtures.

    IME, demand comes in spurts. It's premature to declare the 500E market a "dead". When there has been nothing available on the market for years, and a product becomes available again, there is a flurry of interest and sales. Then demand dies out, until years later when the cycle repeats. Probably could sell another dozen or two kits in 5-8 years, but until then you might get one or two people per year looking, maybe. Mostly from new owners just discovering the 036 and this forum. Same for limited-slip diffs, sway bars, yadda x3...
