Engineering E46 DMS Exhausts
Rogue Engineering is
proud to introduce our DMS (Dual Muffler System) exhaust systems, its
latest offering to the performance exhaust marketplace.
What makes the DMS unique?
Like all Rogue Engineering products, the DMS exhaust system is
entirely designed and developed in the US in our facility in
Hohokus, NJ. By doing the development, fitting, evaluation and
testing here, you're assure a product that not only looks and sounds
great, but a product you can have installed with confidence.
How much performance should I
expect to gain?
our testing, replacing only a muffler or even the complete exhaust
system on an E46 yields small measurable gains. Of course, these
minute gains may be depicted on a carefully constructed dyno
chart. Rogue Engineering looks at an exhaust with reality in
mind, designing our exhaust to deliver great looks and sound, with
minimal issues of fit. Of course, all of this at an affordable
price would be a bonus. These are features that the Rogue
Engineering DMS deliver!
For real world exhaust performance
gains, this typically means replacing the largest restriction, the
catalytic converters, located in the factory exhaust manifolds.
From there, free flow aftermarket catalytic converters could be added
downstream, after the exhaust gas velocity had an opportunity to
accelerate out of the engine, allowing for the most LEGAL gas velocity
allowable. This course of action, however, is typically can
exceed more than $3000 plus installation.
Replacing the ENTIRE factory exhaust
system (resonators and rear muffler) with larger tubing WITHOUT
addressing the largest restriction is an exercise in futility.
This kind of exhaust "upgrade" will generally cost needless
additional installation charges, fit issues (can 6 clamps on an
exhaust REALLY fit like factory?), and ultimately, drain your wallet
faster than a Bugatti Veyron.
Just because the DMS exhaust system is easy on the wallet does
not mean you are getting short changed. Features of the RE
IKON E46 system include:
- Full T-304 Stainless Steel construction
- Mandrel bent, dual 57mm tubing (stock is
dual 50mm) eliminates center resonator, allowing for increased air flow yielding positive performance
- Mill-finished pipes and muffler, mirror polished
dual 3" staggered RACE tips fits most aftermarket bumpers (Hamann,
MTech, AC Schnitzer)
- Entire exhaust utilizes TIG welded construction
- Maintains BMW factory warranty
- Rogue Engineering logo tastefully welded
onto the top of the muffler
- Can be clamped or welded (because factory exhaust must be cut, professional

By using a more conventionally
shaped muffler, we are able to spend more time fine tune the exhaust
flow and sound being emitted from the exhaust. Unlike other
companies that offer "muffler-only" solutions for E46
applications, we have found through our research and polling, that
many of these systems are simply too quiet, not allowing enough
sound to be emitted.
Although we do not produce BMW intake systems, we recognize the popularity and their
use in conjunction with an exhaust system. The RE DMS
E46 system produces a deep, melodious tone, and compliments many
popular intake systems on the market. Have your cake and
eat it, too!
