diokaef, i honestly think this is awesome what your doing but to ask for interest for this kind of exhaust is pushing the boundaries. you've limited your market out of an already small niche group to those that may be building track car with the ultimate goal being more HP regardless of the price, and those that think having this expensive of an exhaust on a street car makes them "baller."

that being said, if i pissed out 100's and i wasn't a broke college student i'd be all over this if it really proves +35hp gains.

I wish I could make it for all but as someone said on previous post, it requires investment and I was paying for it myself doing it for me now at list I can give a few more the opportunity of getting one. But whom knows maybe if becomes possible to make it more affordable I would not have problem doing it.

I wish I could make something on the 2K range but Usually good headers alone cost that much.

After the prototype is finished I may investigate the possibility of making an inter-level of it.

I may also get involved in the manufacturing of the system from scratch after I have a start up. (means building my own header and all)

Just to update you guys, I sent a PM to 3 guys in this Forum and I'm waiting to here back from them. But here is the plan: if they agree with the requirements they will receive a system for a bit less then the cost. each of the 4 systems built will be different so after the dyno and road test the best ones will go to production on a order bases.

So every system will be built to order.

I will have dyno with OEM headers and the rest of my setup

I will have dyno with Euro Headers and the rest of my setup

I will have dyno with AA IV Headers and the rest of my setup

I will have dyno of a full setup

I will have dyno with OEM Headers, OEM Section 1 and the X-pipe and mufflers from my setup.

So if any of the guys that received the invitation can't do it for any other reason, then I will select someone else.

Just to make it clear:

The 3 guys that will receive the system at cost price will not be the guinea pigs for testing, My car will!! the purpose of the 3 people having this on their cars is to give a feedback on the product or Dyno them if they prefer to confirm the increase in HP they will receive the final product and not a testing piece.

Also the XXXX company "has been supplying quality exhaust systems and components to the professional racing industry for over 27 Years! In that time it has been our pleasure to be involved with many championship winning race teams in indy cars and NASCAR. We specialize in exhaust design and fabrication from the head flange to tailpipe"

I will not post any companies names until we have made our decision on wish one will build the system but all 3 of the companies have pros and cons

We have currently entertained 3 different offer for the building process from 3 different companies.

We are going to surprise everyone of you guys in the next 3 months, so if you are planing on exhaust system as next mod I would say wait until we can show what we are doing here.

Will be worthy the wait!!!!

The price will be very good as well

A system that would cost you a easy 7-8 K for less then anything on the market today without any sacrifice on quality.

Also will be sold in sections to bolt to OE sections

And for places that require emissions test throughout the exhaust pipes we will have a solution.

Please wait.

I will need one more person for the exhaust system test. one of my preferred candidates just crashed his car.

Preference for someone with no mods on the car and that can do a before and after dyno.

Alright fine. I can test fit for you. Will a Dynapack dyno suffice? I have access to a Dynapack for before/after dyno testing.

Will not be for test fit, the system that you will get is the final product and the reason why I will do this is so you can dyno to prove the gains and to see other people opinions.
