Default CSL/Euro Headers vs. Supersprint V2

are there any differences? I know it's probably a mere few HP (if that) difference but still would like to know what you guys think about them.

If you had a choice, which one would you get?

With couple friends help I had my SS stepped headers/cats/x-pipe with OEM exhaust this past Sunday. I just love the sound and definitely I can feel additional HP gains

did you go with the 200 or 400 cell cats? got any sound clips? The full system with exhaust just sounds too obnoxious for daily use, but your setup with oem muffler may just be the right balance.

I've never been in an M3 w/ the SS headers, but the CSL/Euro headers are pretty good too. The torque increase is pretty tremendous, especially in the "cruising" RPMs. I suspect that the supersprint headers might be better at the high-end at the expense of low-end torque.

Are you asking about SS V2 Stepped or Non-Stepped?

Both types of SS headers have more hp and torque at every rpm compared to oe euro and flawless fitment. Euro car owners upgrade to SS.

So, IMO, SS!

Matter of opinion, OEM fitment>everything else, HP gain of one over the other is also questionable, bring proof or go home.

You should install an SS product. They went on much easier than stock came off. Fitment really is as good as stock.

Dynos are all over the place. Hit up a euro M3 forum (m3cutters, for example) and search for SS dynos-- direct comparison of oe euro vs SS.

Well yes I would imagine ss stepped would yield better HP, but as far as fitment goes I wont even go there, its common sense. Anyway just my opinion that's all
