Hi all.
Has anyone put a cat back after market exhaust system on their C Class w205 AMG line.
I just want the car to sound a bit more vocal.

I went with just a res delete on mine rather than a new system with deletions on it.

MSL have Torqueflow (I think) at their place, but a simpler Res delete might be a moremlocal (and cheaper option or first step)

Sorry to sound thick fabes, but what's a res delete when it's at home.

There's a section that tames the exhaust note, removing it let's the exhaust sing away. A very common mod with the 6.2l AMGs, though I didn't know they fitted them to the smaller engines

In terms of noise, the improvement is a nice deep yet throaty roar but if you're driving economically/normally it's not intrusive/just a low rumble.

Pics for reference, on the left is the resonator on the right is the cross pipe delete... Mercedes_W204_C63_AMG_48-40692-40749-116252-378171.jpg

If you've had a car with a modified exhaust in the past, you may find that at times it's a bit annoying, e.g. there'll be a drone when cruising on the motorway, or you can't do anywhere without grabbing attention, the resonator delete seems to allow best of both worlds. Fun and noise when wanted, quiet and refined when needed...

Personally with a turbo aspirated car, I'd be looking to get the turbo singing instead...😉

Thank you very much for that explanation, I'm with it now. Will have a scramble under the car to have a look. Have been looking at some specialist exhaust companies since posting, the cross over pipe looks easier as Fabes and yourself have suggested.
I don't want a boy racer exhaust note just a subtle sound to suit the car.
Thanks again
Keith

Check this out, too much noise IMO

A res delete plus some BOV mod:

Third time lucky, just a res delete, sounds great!

Just had a look under the car and it doesn't have a crossover pipe. It's a single pipe and boxes until the two rear boxes either side.
Presume the middle box is the resonator box?
