Video: Widebody BMW F31 Wagon with Armytrix Valvetronic Exhaust

When it comes to BMW performance vehicles, almost everyone lusts after the M3. For those who want a wagon, however, the M3 is out of the question. Luckily, BMW’s standard 3-series has most of the DNA of the M3, and it’s available in a wagon! Of course, the M3 has a much wider and more aggressive body compared to the standard 3-series. Luckily, there are a ton of widebody kits on the market. The gap in performance between the standard 3-series and the M3 can be reduced with bolt-on parts such as an aftermarket exhaust.

As you probably expected, this particular F31 Wagon is equipped with an Armytrix Valvetronic exhaust system. Just like the M3, the inline-6 turbo engine under the hood sounds awesome at idle and under load. The pops and bangs give the F31 a wild, unique, and fun sound. The exhaust isn’t just for sound though! With the increased piping diameter and improved design, exhaust flow is massively improved, resulting in more power and better throttle response. On top of the increase in power and improved throttle response, the lightweight design sheds unnecessary weight which further improves performance. Check out the video below!

Video: McLaren 720S Equipped with Armytrix Valvetronic Exhaust

We all know the McLaren 720S is an insane car. Straight from McLaren it makes 710 horsepower and with a tune it absolutely destroys other supercars in its price range. The thing it has always been missing is a loud exhaust. It sounds pretty good straight from the factory, but it’s just not loud enough for many 720S owners. Luckily, there are aftermarket options such as our 720S Valvetronic exhaust. Unlike some other exhausts which are really loud or really quiet, our Valvetronic exhaust gives you the best of both worlds.

With the exhaust valve closed, our exhaust is comparable to the OEM exhaust. This means it’s quiet enough to keep your neighbors happy, but once you get on the open road you can open the exhaust valve to turn the volume up. With the valve open, your 720S is significantly louder than stock and sounds awesome. Check out the full video below to hear the sound for yourself!

Video: McLaren 570S with Full Armytrix Turbo-Back Exhaust

When it comes to high-end supercars, there is always one feature that everyone hopes for: a loud exhaust. Supercars often use unique engine configurations and have a very refined exhaust tone. The McLaren 570S uses a twin-turbo 3.8L V8, and this small V8 sounds different from a V8 that you would find in an American car. Although McLaren did a decent job with the exhaust on the 570S, some owners want even more sound.

Aside from the eye-catching wrap and carbon fiber PSM Dynamic wing, this 570S features a full turbo-back, decatted Armytrix Valvetronic exhaust. The Valvetronic feature allows you to change the volume of the exhaust on the fly via an exhaust valve which can route the exhaust gases around the muffler. The massive increase in exhaust flow results in a big jump in power, plus the lightweight construction sheds weight. The ceramic coating found on the downpipes massively improves thermals by reducing the amount of heat the downpipes put off. Be sure to check out the full video of the PSM Dynamics 570S below!

Armytrix Lexus LC500 Exhaust Sneak Peek

When you think of a high-performance two-door powered by a 5.0L, you probably think of the Ford Mustang GT. Those who are familiar with JDM performance vehicles know the Lexus LC500 also falls into that same basic description. Outputting 471 horsepower, the LC500 is quite a fast car. Unfortunately, from the factory, you can barely hear the 5.0L engine, which makes the driving experience more like that of a minivan rather than a powerful coupe. Luckily, Armytrix will soon be releasing a solution to this problem with our Valvetronic LC500 exhaust.

The problem with many aftermarket exhausts is either being too loud or too quiet. Once the exhaust is installed, you can’t easily make it louder or quieter. This problem can easily be solved with a valved exhaust. The exhaust gases can be routed through a muffler like a standard exhaust system, or you can change the position of the valve and route the exhaust gases around the muffler. This means you won’t piss off your neighbors during those early mornings, but you can open the exhaust up and hear it roar on canyon roads. Check out the sound clip below!
