El Diablo Design; Daring to be Different
Much development was spent to optimize the El Diablo exhaust system. To understand the improvements, it is important to see how a stock exhaust functions.
What makes the Diablo different is that it is a true "flow through" exhaust system. There are no design elements to slow down the exhaust gases when they speed up with higher RPMs. Part of the challenge of this design is optimizing tubing diameters to allow for adequate backpressure while preventing faster exhaust flow from being blocked or slowed. If you build a system with tubing diameters that are too larger, it results in an exhaust with poor street performance. Tubing diameters that are too small will restrict higher RPMs. The key is a balance, all while producing an exhaust that has a nice deep, mellow tone (a function of muffler size, perforated tubing size, and perforation size). With the Diablo, we have met all of our design requirements.

Equipped with optional equipment, your E46 M3 can see significant power gains with the the Diablo and Rasp Pipe. Bolting on Rogue Engineering specific headers, intake, and software, combined with the Rogue Engineering Rasp Pipe and the Diablo exhaust, consistent power over stock was achieved without dips of hp or torque. More gains would be expect if performed with 93 octane gasoline. Of course, individual results will always vary.
