Yes for the first question, and better for the second question and better quality then supersprint.

Just a little update, I got the mufflers and resonator back and they are ready to receive the tips and fit on the car. So I should try fitting them this week and if I'm able I will record the sound w/o headers. So I will let you guys know

We all can't wait to see your finished product.

From a quality perspective, you have shown us some really good stuff.
I think I speak for all of us when I say, we appreciate that you are taking the time to get it right.

Guys I have 2 Good news and 1 Bad news.

Bad news is: After trying for hours to fit the section 1 under the car with OEM section 2, it proved to be not reliable ($$$) the cost would be more then the current competition, since our attempt to fit fail and the changes to the design would not justify the cost involved in changing the sec 1 we decided to not make section 1 in a way that would fit with the section 2 OEM.

Good news 1 is: Since we will not try to modify the design to fit with section 2 OEM our cost for production of section 1 and 2 was cut almost to 2/3 of the original cost so whoever buy the system (not including headers) the cost will be less and the performance should increase by 2% to 4.5% since will be a better fit.

Good news 2 is: Headers are done with perfect fit (I will not have price for it until system is done tho)(still missing ceramic coating) Headers still work the same, DKF section 1 will fit on OEM headers with no problems and OEM section 1 will fit ours DKF headers with no problems.

I will keep you guys updated on this.

On Monday we will try to fit the mufflers on DKF section 2 and finish DKF section 1.

I will most likely not post any pictures until system is done, but I will post some pictures of the mufflers after is on the car, before I remove it and send it to reproduction.

Thank's all

I want to make an website but I want someone to create and since I have not found anyone that can do what I want I will hold on on that.

The price should come soon.

I will have it fabricated starting on the next few days and after that send 1 to 3 systems to get ceramic coated after this process I should have a final price then Dyno everything and have the ECU tuned to it.


(It looks freaking impressive)

I will need someone near town/me to have it fitted for OEM suspension since mine it's not OEM, (I don't believe it will be a problem but I want to be sure)
