I'm supposed to be getting my JCW next week, and it will come with the JCW Pro exhaust. The part the dealer ordered is listed as an exhaust system, and is listed specifically for the JCW. Not sure if it has any associated software, but I'm assuming not.

There is no software with the exhaust for the JCW as it already has the tune. The MCS uses the tuning software. You should realize right at 270 with the PRO exhaust and the NM module.

Jersey NC and Atlanta seems to be the mini go to places. Wish we had something similar in Nor Cal.

Yes, NC, TN, Northern Ga. (Helen area) parts of WV and E KY have some great twisty roads that are lightly traveled with the demise of the coal industry, and of course the legendary Tail of the Dragon. There are some great roads yet to be explored, I ran across a road in NC during the MOTD and taking a side trip to Helen named Stairway Road. I made a mental note to check it out the next time I am in the area.

I was stationed in LA for a couple of years in the early 70's and the Central Coast for 5 years in the early 80's. Loved the Central Coast, but you couldn't pay me to go back now.

This is a great topic but, SERIOUSLY???? Not one sound clip from one person, not even a stock one......
When discussing a MOD, component, or whatever...A POST WITHOUT PICS AND OR SOUND BITS IS USELESS!!! Help a brother out!

There are myriad threads with this, you just have to search for them. Here are a couple of mine.

I was a little confused after reading through this thread on the diameter of the exhaust. There's a post earlier that says the JCW exhaust is 76mm. I don't have that to compare, but I did measure the diameter of the JCW Pro exhaust I have. It appears to be 2.5" (or, perhaps, ever so slightly smaller).

*********** CORRECTION: SEE BELOW ****************



The length of the midpipe is ~32.5" from the flange to the clamp in the middle.

Maybe the JCW Pro exhaust is smaller in diameter than the JCW exhaust? That's a pic of it.

Yes, if you don't run the car with the exhaust open most of the time and even then the primary exhaust will be more sooty. Mine are soot covered as I have 30,000 miles on the car with most of it at high RPMs and I can't even buff it out with polishing compound. It's just a side effect of too many high RPM twisting miles, offset by miles of smiles!

I painted my chrome JCW tips with flat black/high heat spray paint. It is the paint used for stoves, etc. You could mask the outside and just shoot the interiors...

Mine really don't look bad. I maybe have the flap open a quarter of the time, and have cleaned the tips maybe twice in 18k. The soot on them at the moment would clearly wipe off with a spritz of apc and a rag.

Doubting my original measurement, I picked up a more precise tool to measure the pipe. It looks like it is actually 2.75", as quoted earlier. Note to self: tape measure isn't precise enough.
