Active Autowerke has been an industry leader in engineering high-quality BMW performance products for over 30 years. Dedicated to improving performance with the highest quality products, Active Autowerke is synonymous with making power. Their philosophy on developing refined BMW performance parts, with power in mind, and providing them to a large BMW community can be best characterized by our F87 mid-pipe – a valuable addition to their M2C BMW collection.
The Active Autowerke F87 Mid Pipe was specifically designed to eliminate the highly restrictive nature of the S55 – thus creating optimal exhaust flow and drastically improving performance. In addressing the annoying sound ( described by many like that of a weed-eater ) they needed to better understand the issue. After much research and testing, they discovered the synchronization of the Turbos as the main factor in the sound. The solution was a single mid-pipe which eliminated much of the annoying sound. The next challenge was making a large 3.5″ pipe ( needed for optimum performance ) fit without ground clearance issues – thus the oval pipe. Engineered for an exact fit on the new BMW M2 Competition, the difference in power with this mid-pipe will be noticeable the moment it is installed!
