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.
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:
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.

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 ?!?
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.

Good to know that you can ramp up again in the future, though. Again, 5SR, your service is much appreciated to the community here.
Is your last rear section with turn down tips still available?
Absolutely LOVE my rear section (BRABUE STYLE), I now have a rattily CAT and need the test pipe section. I live in the sticks (no need for emissions) and only drive to shows so no need for cats.....Still available??

JC, just wanted to post and chime in that I'm 100% happy and satisfied with the exhaust with the HJS 200cel cats. Put it on the car about 1.5 years ago and it's been amazing ever since.
I know I did promise to try to get it dynoed but I wasn't able to find a good shop locally with a good dyno. Will definitely update here if I ever do so, but don't count on it at the moment.
I know we're mostly focused on practical gains, but I have to ask, would you be able to make us some beautiful equal length high air flow headers for the M119? I saw some fliesen headers on the Leistung website.
What would the availability be like, and how can we make this happen? I have a feeling it'll sound like the Sauber C11 which probably has equal length headers on the M119.
I have two front sections left form the previous run. But iirc it’s built with catalysts. Let me double check and report back.
We started with header development on the m119 but we ran into problems.
1. Space it’s really tight the design would be like a tubular log header. The equal length would take place past the motor mounts.
2. Additional heat leading to possible header cracking. Even with using 400 series stainless the sections are too short and small. It takes a lot of time to weld it together trying to control thermal expansion.
3.Price labor hours alone will drive the cost of the header. The one seen on leistung’s Instagram feed is for the 2.3-16. That unit with a revised down pipe is $1600.00.
It’s safe to say that a set of headers will be in the $3200.00 range which is expensive.

Please mark me down for another Brabus unit for your next production run. Actually I’d like to get the full Monty kit with cats and everything.
Thank you for keeping the flame lit for us nut-head w124.036 types.
Please sign me up for the 2019 production run - I will take the front section with California catalyst, if possible.

I'm in for a full kit as well. Thanks.
I am in for a full kit for 2019.
im planning on doing the exhaust run in feb with an April delivery this should be ideal for those getting tax money back
Let me know if this works or if I should delay it a little.
