Castro Motorsport Race Exhaust Installed - Photos + Videos

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just got my car back from Castro Motorsport after having them install their race axle-back exhaust (with flat black tips) on my car. Definitely not for the faint of heart as it is definitely loud and sounds very aggressive (since I have a catless 4" downpipe from Evolution Racewerks)! I love it though! Unfortunately, even with an external audio recorder, I could not capture the full intensity of the exhaust note, so this is the best I can do (videos below).
Before anyone asks, yes, this exhaust will drone between 3k-4k rpms with partial throttle (keep in mind I have a catless downpipe - it makes a big difference in the volume of the exhaust). It is a race exhaust after all and is mufflerless, but it sounds so sick in person! If anyone in the 714 area wants to meet up to hear it, hit me up!







Some revving, normal driving with a bit of acceleration, and one quick WOT run:


Alternative video from my GoPro:

You must like attention. Isn't having a red car enough without adding white to the windshield? Unless Castrol is paying you to advertise I think it's a bit much, but the exhaust I happen to like. Did you add an intake as well?

The windshield banner was for European Auto Source (it has their logo on it), which I was with at Bimmerfest, so they required that I put it on. But yes, I do love attention. Problem?
I have an aFe intake.

It's the AWRON gauge. I have a post about it here: http://www.2addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=977212

I don't have a problem other than it looks like a kids car with that BS on the street.

Good looking car otherwise.
