BMW E28 Performance Headers & Downpipes

BMW E28 Performance Headers & Downpipes Headers are a bolt-on component that will make a huge improvement in how your BMW performs. As a replacement for your factory BMW exhaust manifold, our BMW headers provide a more direct path for exhaust gasses leaving your engine. Headers prevent your BMW's exhaust pulses from "fighting" one another as they leave the head. The end result is that BMW headers give you more power and torque, and you'll love the high-winding top end push that a free-breathing engine exhibits. BMW headers are a must-have if you're doing any engine modifications on your vehicle. Along with a cold air intake, BMW headers provide the free-flowing exhaust necessary to get the most power out of your motor.

E24 635, E28 535 Supersprint Tubolare Performance Headers

Free ground shipping!

 Supersprint tubular headers are one of the must-have performance items for the M30 engine. These equal length, stainless steel headers replace the stock manifolds for an instant power and sound upgrade. This header kit opens up the exhaust for a less restrictive flow. Expect gains of at least 12hp with these and more if you have other modifications to the cams and intake. There is a beautiful sound to go with the torque and horsepower improvements.

Supersprint exhaust is widely recognized as the leader in complete exhaust system upgrades - extremely high quality, well designed for optimal flow, and amazing sound. Even at a premium price Supersprint is an unbeatable exhaust system because every aspect is done to such a high level. A Supersprint exhaust rewards you with a terrific sound, long lasting construction and excellent fitment. The Supersprint sound is very 'European' which fits the sporting sophistication of BMWs perfectly. Most systems are also modular - sections can be added or removed to custom tailor the exhaust sound to your preferance. Aside from 'Race' systems, their mufflers meet European noise laws so you get a refined and tuned sound without being excessively loud. Most Supersprint systems are built with larger diameter piping to improve exhaust flow which helps the engine do less work and make more horsepower! Supersprint exhausts generally run at a premium over other systems but no other system on the market can match their quality, performance, or reputation!

NOTE: Supersprint engineers and manufactures complete exhaust systems. This part was designed to be used with the rest of the Supersprint system on this car but may be used on its own. A set of downpipes connects runs from the headers to a BMW-type 3-bolt flange. We recommend using this with the Supersprint front resonator and the rest of the Supersprint exhaust system because it's a slam-dunk easy fitment. However, your own custom exhaust can also be fitted using the downpipe's 3-bolt flanges. Or cut the flanges off and use a custom adapter to fit with the stock cat section.

This part alters or deletes the emissions equipment on your car, and may not meet emissions standards in all states. Because of this, we require a waiver of emissions compliance to be signed and sent in to TMS. You can download the waiver here.

E24 M6, E28 M5 Supersprint Euro Tubular Stepped Headers

One area where the US M5/M6 is different than a more-powerful Euro-spec model is in the exhaust. The US M5/M6 got a header design with smaller pipes that is more restrictive. These Supersprint headers are based on the Euro design (no longer available through BMW USA) but are slightly larger tubes for better performance. The stepped design is a favorite of M3 header designs and originated in Formula 1 engines. These headers also feature Supersprint's precision-engineered merge collectors on each bank that greatly improves exhaust flow and does not impede velocity.

Fitment note: this system is based on the Euro design with 3-bolt flanges (the US used 2-bolt flanges). You will need the factory Euro center section or the Supersprint center section for this to be a direct bolt on. We recommend using this with the full Supersprint system (front center pipes, rear center resonator, and rear muffler) for the easiest install and the best sound.

Fitment Notes: The headers are a direct fit with the factory gaskets to the M30 engine. A set of downpipes connect the headers to a Supersprint front resonator. This resonator also serves as a cat-delete pipe. The resonator uses a 3-bolt flange which makes this a direct fit to the rest of the Supersprint exhaust. If you're using any other exhaust system there may be different flanges and some modification may be required.
