BMW X5 Cat Back Exhaust System (Round Tips) #FBMW-3010

Product Details

BMW X5 Cat Back Exhaust System (Round Tips) #FBMW-3010

One of the main reasons that no one has been able to duplicate our distinct design for the X5 / E53 (“1st” Generation, 2000-2006 X5’s) is due to our Purge Resonance Technology. PRT is BBEs unique proprietary muffler-design innovation, which has been fully customized to your BMW X5’s specific exhaust-flow tendencies.

Essentially, the PRT framework allows your BBE X5 exhaust system to carry a pleasantly harmonious note at cruising speeds and then aggressively amplify–keeping the same overtones–during acceleration. The system is highly responsive to your right foot: if/when you say “Go!” it’ll make sure everybody knows your wishes. Coupled with a pair of round double-walled 4″ hand-polished T-304 stainless steel tips, and you can see why this symphonic/sonic-boom combination of “aggressive-if-necessary” and “if looks could kill…!” sits so well with the BMW X5 owner. The low-restriction muffler naturally leads to the increase in torque and horsepower gains of around +15hp.

100% T-304 stainless steel. Replete with CNC mandrel-bent 2″ tubing throughout the entire catback system, your BMW X5 can now “breathe” easy. And you can focus more on enjoying the ride. Easily installed as bolt-on, clamp-tightened, and direct replacements for factory exhaust. You don’t need to weld or do anything “tricky”. We’ve aimed for the simplest exhaust installation possible with this Billy Boat X5 exhaust (FBMW-3010). Lifetime warranty on workmanship and materials.

  • 4″ Twin ROUND Double-Wall Tips.
  • Mandrel bent from the highest-grade T-304 stainless steel.
  • Designed, tested, and manufactured to the finest hand-made integrity found in any exhaust system.
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

Installation is a direct replacement of the factory equipment and shouldn’t take much more than two hours to perform.  These installation instructions will guide you through the original equipment removal and Billy Boat Exhaust installation procedure.  The Billy Boat Exhaust system is a high-performance, emissions compliant muffler system that requires special installation care.  It is recommended that a professional exhaust technician perform the installation.

  1. Disconnect the battery negative terminal for safety and to reset the vehicle’s on-board computer.
  2. Secure the vehicle on a wheel lift.
  3. Unbolt the rear muffler hangers from the chassis and remove with the muffler still attached.
  4. Transfer the hangers off the original muffler to the new Billy Boat Exhaust
  5. Install the new muffler in the reverse order of removal. Using the supplied nuts, secure the new muffler in place. (new bolts are supplied with the new muffler in case the existing bolts get damaged when removing the existing muffler)
  6. It is normal for stainless steel to discolor slightly. To ensure a quality, lasting finish, thoroughly wipe down the entire Billy Boat Exhaust prior to starting.
  7. Reconnect the battery negative terminal and start the vehicle. Listen for exhaust leaks and ensure there is no contact between the Billy Boat Exhaust system and any component of the vehicle.
  8. Enjoy your Billy Boat Exhaust!
