well many things contribute to engine noise through your exhuast,,,
starting your engine will often cause it to make loud noises...
how loud is loud? ask the EPA...(Australian)
Buy the sounds of things starting from basics you have a WOT problem to much to much power for your low density exhaust system.
Start from Idle...
Cool everythings cool?
let it warm up to operating temp...
Any changes with the note? there should be!!!!
engines resonate at different frequencies..
resonate is to be a good thing but watch for the leaning of the fuel as it will force the oil to burn and dry your moving pistions out of oil lubricant../
check for leaks in manifolds behind your firewall, out of your collectors,
HEY have you done any mods to your engine ??? Intake exhaust??? BMW ??? they aint stupid they make cars.. Keep it simple stupids loud noises more bang for bucks lol..
Good to here that some one is trying to keep it down in these rooms and what ever happened to the 5 series twin stianless exhaust for my 528i 1985 2.8l sohc ???? hows the sound?? ask me haha

???

haha, confusing post.

AK1: what does the noise sound like and when does it happen specifically? does it sound like its coming from front (near engine), bottom (under the car), or back at the muffler.

yeah , i was thinking maybe the cat has maybe blown out, do you notice an excess of pollution coming out of the exhaust? a "blowing" noise is pretty hard to imagine for any armchair mechanic. typically the noises from exhaust are like a loud noise that is in relation to say a hole in the exhaust, but even then youll notice a decrease in perfomance.

im a bit stumped by the explaination of the thread.

drunken mess

: opps i lost my threads guys it was really early and had really bad eye sight, opps again back to basics sounds good .
Yeah sounds like leaky manifold gasket or coupling flange leak .?
bit hard to solve being blind ... listen more closely from start up .
maybe you could listen through a flexible hose to get a little closer to the noise and its location ? good luck
