In our last post, when we released the Meisterschaft GTC (EV Control) for the all new BMW M3 and M4, we mentioned there was more to come… Well, here it is. The second installment of Meisterschaft exhaust products for the latest BMW M!

We understand that a valve controlled exhaust is not ideal for everyone, this is why we are bringing more to the table. Following in the footsteps of the E9x M3, the familiar GT and GT2 will live on, now with an all new modular design for the F8x M3 and M4.

Let’s begin with the GT Racing.

Our all new GT Racing system for the F8x M3 and M4 is designed to provide the ultimate street performance for your vehicle. Increased from the OE 63mm piping, our GT Racing unit features 76mm inlet piping that continues on into our dual velocity chamber design. Our velocity chambers have been engineered to maximize flow by accelerating the exiting exhaust gases, thus relieving back-pressure and resulting in higher power-output from the twin-turbocharged motor.

The exhaust note produced by the GT Racing is simply wonderful. Featuring a perfectly balanced sound spectrum from the lows to the highs the note of the GT Racing is pronounced, smooth, and aggressive.

Over the years, the M3 has been a widely popular track day car. As such, we kept track enthusiasts in mind while developing this new system. Here is where the GT2 Performance Package comes into play. When you order a Meisterschaft GT2 Package for your M3 or M4 you will receive a complete GT Racing exhaust system as pictured above, and in addition to the GT Racing system, you will receive a Super GT Performance X-Pipe section which serves as bolt-in substitute to the muffler canister on our rear section and is great for track and high performance driving events.

The Super GT Peformance X-Pipe not only increases high-end power output but also serves as a sprung weight reduction, making it perfect for track day use! This simple bolt-in design allows the two parts to be interchanged in a matter of 10-15 minutes.

As you may imagine, the Super GT Performance X-Pipe does have an impact on the sound. The effect is an exotic, higher pitch, aggressive and furthermore intoxicating sound!

Both our GT Racing and GT2 Performance Package come standard with our 76mm SR Connecting Pipes. These allow for simple cut and slip-on installation. No welding is required.
