    Downpipes E550

    MBH Motorsports recently announced downpipes for the BiTurbo M278/550 engines. For those with a tune, these could be an asset.
    I believe the pipes fit CLS & E550 sedan, but don't know if they fit the coupe. PM'd them & no response at this time.

    No dynos, pictures, or pricing information?

    I would remain on the fence then until they did.

    I agree!
    The M278 pipes look similar to their downpipes for a M157 CLS and E sedan; I believe they use 3" diameter for both.
    They claim a 60 HP gain for the M157, but that seems quite optimistic....

    I would think so too. Need to see these dynos, hope they post some but until then tough to recommend.

    I don't think so, details on this pipe? Maybe in a new thread?

    I know guys like MBH products and they have a good reputation but I'm wondering about these downpipes. Would like more details.

    No numbers yet for the M278 downpipes that I've seen.
