    W204 C63 Coupe CKS X-Pipe, ECU Remap & Sport Air Filters

    Thought this sounded pretty damn good. Don't really know anything about CKSperformance.

    Sounds good. Amazing how removing that resonator opens it up. I have a video of my BS somewhere let me find it...it was done right after i removed my resonator.

    Post it up, separate thread though. Resonator versus resonator removed.

    Do you know if the x-pipe was installed in place of the secondary cats or the resonator? Either way, it sounds great.

    Usually and X pipe goes in place of the secondary cats. That's what I did on mine, but I used straight pipes, no X. Made the car considerable louder at WOT. I left my resonator in place. If you remove it, you might get some droning inside the cabin at certain rpm's.

    That's what I figured. Thanks. I'm always considering doing a setup like yours. I don't know if I want an x-pipe in place of the secondary cats because the resonator already has the small h-pipe. At what point is too many cross-over pipes too much? However, perhaps the h-pipe really doesn't equalize exhaust pulses like an x-pipe would.

    Here is what mine sounds like after the cat delete with straight pipes. And I agree with you - if the factory thought it needed a cross or X at the cats they would have put one it.




    The crack you hear in this one towards the end is the 3 -2 downshift.

    @LZH, great sound mod. That downshift crack sounds nice.

    Thanks man - waiting on either Weistec or EC to get the throttle blipping mod and then I'm sure it'll really snap!

    keeping my fingers crossed it happens soon. Then I'll get the corresponding tune (Weistec or EC) as well as long tubes and some light weight mods.

    That's a great plan. Your car will be a different animal at that point.

    Lightweight mods like:

    Lightweight front seats
    Rotors
    Spare tire removal
    Lightweight battery
    Primary cat delete (cause of your LT's)

    Plus your added power will make your car fly.

    For me, I have C63 P31 with MBTex/cloth seats (manual forward/backward) and the following:

    CF hood
    CF trunk
    Lightweight rotors all around
    Lightweight front seats b/c of explanation above^
    Lighter engine internals
    Gonna add lightweight battery
    Spare tire delete whenever

    It adds up...

    Agreed. Careful with the lightweight battery - I've heard they don't have the amperage to power all the sensitive electronics and you might start having electrical issues. I know JRcart used the Braille and had issues. I'd like to do a carbon hood as well as some other bodywork in carbon. Lightweight rotors for sure and I'm trying to get carbon ceramic rotors which will get rid of a ton of unsprung weight. No spare tire in the Black Series. I'm also trying to source the OEM European seats as well as the carbon door panels. Pricy stuff but I want to keep it as OEM as possible.
    I like your mods, your car must look great and have the performance to back it up. Have you looked into fitting a larger oil cooler ?

    Thanks! I haven't looked into fitting the larger oil cooler but I would consider that mod for sure.

    I didn't know that about the BS and no spare tire, but of course, makes sense. Carbon ceramic rotors sounds really exotic and very good place to shed lbs.

    I've heard mixed reviews with the lightweight battery. Perhaps not going too light can be a good compromise. I think they have a 15lbs battery but maybe going a little heavier can spare some amperage. I don't know though...

    Keeping your BS as OEM as possible is the best route, and if you can source the Euro seats you will be stylin'.

    The one in the vid sounds deeper for some reason.

    Here is mine.

    Thank you man, much appreciated. To be honest....and I'm not sure if any of you have seen the inside of the BS mufflers, but that is where the distinct sounds comes from. There is very little baffling and no sound deadening material at all. So it's basically no different than any other 63 model except for the mufflers. Of course we all know what happens when you install long tubes...stupid loud is an understatement.

    Haven't seen the CLKBS mufflers, never knew they had no baffles.
    I think that explains why the black series exhaust note sounds considerably deeper then the C63's.
    Stock vs stock, out of all the M156 AMG's ive seen the CLKBS sounds best IMO.

    Lol very true, LTH's make these things sound UNREAL!

    Caragraphic and Supersprint have a set of headers and downpipes that work perfectly for the CLK BS. Car picks up huge power using either ogf these systems
