Talking New exhaust, so far so good

just picked this up, was pretty impressed. It is as light as they claim(27 pounds lighter) Came across their youtube video when I was researching exhaust systems...not bad for $900 shipped to my door

thanks, it gets better as the miles add up..not as droney as others I have heard...with the weight drop and mid range power gains you can definitely feel it pull harder

Sounds nice. That darn butt dyno though ... VERY difficult, especially when adding a louder exhaust.

Nice video. What diameter are the tips?

I can't imagine living in that "exhaust test neighborhood."

Those kids are lucky some Cranky TX homeowner wasn't waiting at the stoplight with a Beretta!

To the OP, videos are difficult to get a true feel. I'm looking for subtle at the low end, racy after 4k rpm. And not looking for muscle care sound, more F1 ish. Thoughts?

at the higher RPM's it sounds less muscle like if you will, after 2,000 miles it still puts smiles on my face..

You need the exhaust that goes all the way up to the flat 12 you'll be replacing your V8 with, to get that sound.

You picked it up? Really disappointed with you Brian. I get that you are trying to drum up interest but this is not the way. My suggestion is you come clean and you do it now before the damage gets any worse.
