^ exactly. This started as a good discussion and somehow went off the rails. Did a little pruning, back now to the original topic. Thanks all.

Adding an exhaust in conjunction with a tune or "chip" should be a good combo. After all, you turbo will likely be boosting higher pressure and an upgraded exhaust will help with the exhaust flow.

+9HP is obtainable with a good exhaust; couple that with a tune and the combine gain might be a little more. We have tuned a few F56 1.5T Cooper and we can really hear the restrictiveness of the stock exhaust.

We can confirm this. Trentiles purchased the Stage-1 custom flash for his F56 along with the OBD FlashAccess module at our Summer Discount special pricing. He is one of our many happy customers out there and we thank you for your support

Happy Motoring!

If still interested in an exhaust AWE Tuning makes absolutely incredible exhaust with many setup options. They also have great customer service.

Remus also has top of the line exhausts, although I am not familiar with their customer setup firsthand I have read great things about them.

If I was in the market for an exhaust it would be one of the above, personally leaning towards AWE.
