Supersprint Exhaust and Headers for the M5 and M6 V-10, information form the VP.

Straight form the Supersprint CEO from the headoffice in Italy.


"I'd like to inform you and the entire M5 community that Supersprint will also have a cat-back exhaust very soon, in both the classic, road-legal, TUV homologated version, and in a more radical, lightweight race version.

Alongside the M5, we will also offer an exhaust for the E63 M6, with similar carachteristics.

But most importantly, Supersprint will also pioneer in developing a full performance system, which includes headers, and metallic cats. Our headers will share some of the very same technical, exclusive features of the authentic F1, V10 race engine headers, while the remaining Supersprint exhaust components will complement them to perfection, thanks to the Supersprint trademark tecnology and design..

This combination will guarantee the best gains and the greatest sound, as found on all of the finest performance road cars equipped with a full Supersprint exhaust system.

Needless to say, we expect to get a healty increase in performance over the stock exhaust, as well as over any other basic cat-back system.

From our initial, brief evaluations of the stock M5 exhaust system, the cat-back section is not restrictive as most people may think, and not much performance can be made by a mid-and-back exhaust only, regardless of its design and pipe sizing.

The key exhaust components to getting the most out of the M5 V10 engine will be the headers and the cats, just like on the E39 M5 V8. While the E60 stock headers' design itself looks like it's been laid out way better than the older M5 design, the multiple-cat, stock system certainly diminishes the headers' true performance potential by a considerable amount.

This may be due to the extremely strict limitation of the emissions that the BMW Factory has to obey, however this remains a fact which all of the M5 owners have to face.

We repeat, based upon our experience with the exhaust system we made for another V10 engine in the recent past, that the M5 enthusiasts who will opt for a Supersprint exhaust will certainly be rewarded with astounging results.

The new Supersprint exhaust will be available in the US at BMP, as always. Pre-orders of the Supersprint cat-back components, which will be fully compatible with the stock cat system anyway, will be accepted by BMP, starting from July 5th."

I'm very tempted - the standard E60 exhaust is a disappointment (the car sounds like a diesel when idling). Any ideas on pricing yet?

No word pricing yet. Nice to hear that headers is in the development phase as well!

Re: Supersprint Exhaust and Headers for the M5 and M6 V-10, information form the VP.

Interesting that Supersprint feels that the biggest improvement, i.e., horsepower, will come from the headers and not the exhaust (similar to E39 M5). This even though BMW is supposed to have developed higher performance headers for the E60 M5 than the E39 M5. Wonder how much improvement their redesigned headers will provide? Wonder if the difference will be as great for the E60 (vs. E39)?

The other V-10 car the yhad expeience with was the Lamborghini Gallardo.

Exhaust:

"The expected delivery time of the very first batch of Supersprint cat-back systems is late September. Maybe earlier, but it still is not certain."

Headers:
"As for the headers and metallic cats, we've already built our 5-into-1 merge collectors, and we are currently in the process of designing at least two different versions of headers, one headers using constant cross-section primary tubes, another headers using "step section" primaries. The whole developement process of the headers + cats will most likely take a few months, and we expect delivering these exhausts later this year."

Gustav,

Right now we will just offer the classic round tip option. In the future we might offer some other styles. What different tip styles do you think would suite the e60? Chris
