Are you building a race car or converting a car to off-road use only?
Start by replacing the restrictive factory DPF filter and exhaust with this mandrel bent downpipe and allowing the exhaust to flow freely!
This downpipe is built to last with 409 grade stainless steel and a high quality flex pipe, it will also retain the 02 sensors and EGT sensors as the proper bungs have been provided.

-Our cats are made specifically to our specs by Catco in the USA. The same lifetime can be expected as from the OE cat, assuming the vehicle is in proper running condition. 'Plugging' should not be an issue, assuming there are no engine issues.
These are general instructions and they are not intended to be used as a DIY.
Remove all exhaust sensors that are accessible and/or electrically unplug them.
Lift car in air
Support engine with a transmission jack
Lower the subframe

The flat clamp will be installed at the end of the exhaust, connecting the new exhaust to the stock muffler system. The pipe for the stock muffler system should be cut right below the heat shielding where one heat shield overlaps the other.
The other clamp will connect the downpipe to the midpipe.

I thought I would save a few hundred bucks buying another setup first. most of the savings was in the price of the cat: $100 vs. $450. I ran the cheap system first and was not pleased at all. Just installed this one from Buzzken after talking with the owner on Facebook. He assured me his setup would be better so I plunked down another $1300. The difference is night and day. Now the X5 is actually enjoyable to drive. This is the system you want if you don't like to be gassed out anytime you go through a drive-thru.
Very happy with the product, everything worked out perfectly, the step by step guide was really useful...would have gave five stars only for the bracket to join the 3" pipe to the backbox was too big and I ended up needing a shim...otherwise a good buy
X5 sounds amazing my wife loves it. It was very easy to install once OEM stuff was out.
Awesome product, highly recommend professional install and/or access to a lift like I did. I opted for catless. Very strong odor going this route, which doesn't bother me at all, but just something to note. Makes all the turbo noises now, just makes it more enjoyable driving around.
Fabulous. Great people and products. Highly recommend. A+ customer service
Best thing i have done in my upgrade process.
Great product. Fits nicely. Well designed.
Its an expensive but well made exhaust. Shipped out of Canada to Canada which was nice (no expensive UPS customs fees) and it fit up nicely. Sounds awesome too. Could have come with a little more instructions (came with none) so you may need to ask about the sensors that are used and where they plug to. Bit tricky to remove the old exhaust so be sure to read up online before you remove the old one!!!!!
I ordered the DPF/SCR delete pipe without the DOC thinking the sound will be better and free-flowing, but after the first week the smell of this Diesel had to go. I dont know what it is about this these engines, but the smell is much more pungent then a Diesel truck. AARodriguez worked with me on the cost to replaces the non DOC down pipe with the DOC down pipe and it made a big difference! Now it still smells like a Diesel, but no way as bad as it did and the sound is a bit more muffled, which my wife likes better anyway, but I have no complaints. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra $300 and do it right the first time.
