Inspired, race-tested and proven in the various race series

The Active Autowerke Race and Turbo Exhaust is a full 3.0″ straight-through design with resonators for that tuned note. Its a first for the BMW E36 racing community, the mid-section resonator can be interchanged for a straight-through pipe – giving you the choice between Mild or Full race sound.

Handles 600+ HP

Guaranteed not to rust through

This system uses a quick-release stainless steel V-Band clamping system for reliable sealing, easy disconnect and weight savings. The Turbo/Race Exhaust can also be fitted on an E36 turbo powered car with relatively simple modifications for maximum horsepower gains. The decrease in back pressure translates into immediate turbo spool and boost acceleration improvements. Lightweight and polished, built of 100% 304 stainless throughout, this system is guaranteed not to rust through or break away and handles 600+ HP without flinching. Bolts directly to factory hanger points for an easy install.

How light is it you ask?


The complete Active RACE Exhaust system is still lighter than the factory E36 rear muffler.
