I like the sound! but my personal preference wouldn't be for that look.

I am curious to hear it just while you're cruising for a sense of the volume and potential drone, but subjectively how is all that?

Sound: 8/10
Looks: 5/10

Probably the best sounding exhaust I've heard so far, but I don't like the angled exhaust tip :/ Really torn because that does sound spectacular.

I'm with you on this, the angle is a bit much. Sounds great though.

there isn't enough space back there for the exhaust to be installed straight. Also, I didn't mind that look because most JDM/ KDM cat-back exhaust are setup that way and its all about personal taste. :)


BUT the exhaust note sounds great!!

I was a bit worried to see it fitted this way. Did they say this was the only way to make it work? It's cool on other cars with round bumper cutouts though (Evo, skyline, supra, etc). The sound is good, but to know for sure you need fly-by's, in-cabin driving, and a few launches. The stock exhaust sounds amazing with the camera right by it, yet you hear nothing in the cabin with windows up. If you don't mind making a few more clips, it would be interesting to see.

Anyway, if anyone is still tempted to get this muffler, here is what I'd do: ask your shop to paint the muffler & piping matte black to conceal it more (leave the tip shiny), I did that before, it looked sick but with titanium tips. Have the shop cut and reweld the tip to a pipe with a bend that is the same diameter so it looks straight on the car since the muffler can only fit at that angle. You could technically mount the muffler even more inside the car to make this work. But even then it still needs a round bumper cutout to look perfect. That's up to each person though what's acceptable looks-wise.

I'm sure there are shops out there that will install it straight but our car isn't designed for these type of exhaust so at the end it all came down to fitment/ support. The muffler shop had to add additional hangers to supper the weight of the muffler and the area where you can bolt on the hangers were very limited. Ultimately, the side angle was the best possible way for me to install.

I will take some additional videos today of inside the cabin driving and maybe couple of drive by vids.


Thanks,


DK

That greddy muffler is 2.5" inside diameter, the tip is 4" but only for visual appearance. If you just want the muffler itself and don't care for the tip, then you could have them customize it any way you like with 2.5" pipe coming out of it into a single tip of any size or a Y split for dual tip. That's actually way easier than having them mess with the original tip. I'd still wait to see more clips in action before you commit to it.

Google around and see which mufflers shop has the best review. Most muffler shops are very flexible and will modify and bend pipes the way you want it. I'm positive a muffler shop around your area will take good care of you!

I gotta say, I love the sound of the Tork big bulp too. Shaddix was complaining about it but I've been waiting to hear it, and it sounds great.
The greddy bov is... well, a greddy. I like the more muted bov's like the TurboSmart that Tork used in their vids.
Anyway, the exhaust sounds perfect. Hoping Tork comes out with a catback exhaust using a similar high flow muffler. That sound is heaven.

I'll admit his car does sound nice. My issue with the intake was the suction noise and no way to reattach the recirc, but that's my personal preference. The only way to know if it's for you or not is to try it yourself. I've written about my experience with it. But at the end of the day, I am looking for very specific sound and look that not everyone will agree with.

I'm still getting used to the suction noise.. it was quite annoying at first but steadily getting used to it. Also, at the end of the day it's all about what makes you happy. Many people have stated my exhaust note was good but not the looks. But for me that was the look I was going for so make your car your own and customize it the way it makes you happy! ;)
