View Full Version : XB12 Exhaust and ECM

12-24-2012, 06:42 PM
I like my 12Ss performance with stock ecm, but the stock exhaust is too docile. I like the sound of my 9 with a race ecm and Jardine. Has anyone had success with using the stock ECM with and aftermarket or mod pipe?

One of these and the Tuniversity would work for you.

Hope it sounds as good as it looks.
I want to maintain a semi stock appearance on my 12Ss, as much as possible, and keep the use of the chin spoiler.
I guess what I'd like to know is if anyone has opened up the stock pipe on a 12, and maintained a stock ECM without too much programming trouble.
My 9Sx has a race ECM and jardine can, which I use ECMspy to reset the TPS every once in awhile. This setup is OK but I'd rather not invest a ton of cash in new hi perf pipe and ecm on my 12, if I can just open my pipe to get some grumble. I'm looking for more noise, not HP. I ride in the city quite a bit and the extra noise let's cagers know I'm there. In Madison WI drivers tend to lane change first and signal later, ya know? And then there are those that think their turn signals automajically clear the lane for them. But that's different thread, now isn't it?

So I would appreciate any advice from riders who have kept minimalist attitude on the pipe and ecm mods for their XB12's.

Thanks in advance.
