Zuzak-
The simple answer is no. There is not a neat concise post that includes all the options and specs. That will probably come soon after the initial impression from the testers and just before the product goes on sale.


There IS some info on post 713.

I think we need to be patient. There are only a couple people working on this and they have other lives too. Plus they probably want to gather the data and clips and present the info in a concise and organized fashion instead of throwing random clips at us. Plus with money/investors involved they need to get the input from the partners before presenting stuff.

This is just my preference. The tip can be set to desired fitment. I run mine about an 1/8 from the bumber

Look out for the firework show out the rear :-)

can you give me alittle feedback on the the race cat system, Xpipe and Sport rear mufflers??? hows the tone?? hows the drone??? i genuinely will listen and believe your review, your review for me will be my choice of buying or not, not many people on an internet forum do i trust like that......
Well yes, it took a great deal to get me out of my beloved RPIís. After trying several different mufflers, I did not think I would ever replace my RPIís. I say louder based using the Race mufflers & Race Pipes. Despite the fact that I was going to be bringing my car into the fabricator for the roll bar/half cage the day after I received the DKF systems I had to see and hear one of the systems on my car right away! Between the sound, fit, and finish I decided that somewhere in all the options that lay before I was going to find my new exhaust system.

I will be providing you with real detailed reviews, but it is going to be a step by step process. It is going to take some time to put everything together. Rather than wait to deliver it all at once. I will take everyone along for the journey and post as I go. I will outline my plan of action and reserve posts for the specific parts of my review once I finish the replies in this post. My goal is not only to find the best fit system for my needs, but also provide everyone with good solid information on the DKF components that I am testing.

Like you, I am concerned about the sensitivity of our tune, which is exactly why I am testing so many different options. I plan work the bugs out so you donít have to. I do not currently have a set of race cats to test, so I will not be able to give a specific review on that set-up right away.
Thank you for the kind word Byron, now that the cage work is done (except paint, but that can wait) I will be dedicating a ton of time to this exhaust project.
Cheers, looking forward to the firework show

It seems there ther will something for everyone. The Street mufflers will be the quietest, The Sport to cover the mid range and the Race for loudest option. The Street should be a relatively mellow deep tone. Once the DB testing is done on each muffler you will have a much better idea of how they compare to others. You havenít missed it, so stay tunned.

Yes, sir we are hard at work. In my case, I have no other life though

NOW were talking...... this is exactly what im talking about, proper information coming, properly formulated and properly summerized, i for one cant wait!!!!!!!!!

For me like you it will take some tearing away from my RPI's which i do love, BUT if this is solid move with little to no pitfalls im in, imo we currently have NO REAL options bar Supersprint which are FAR to expensive imo..... this system is like "our" Akrapovic..... Lots of options, proper power gains, properly engineered solution that screams quality, if this delivers for me on the no tune issues, sound level and Fit and finish im in.... ive already put the money aside and just waiting on the information to arrive, i suppose its no rush now anyway as the car is now in winter storage....

CFRine88 dont run catless with our setup, youll loose valuable Tq ;-) i went through this at length with ess, you really want to run the race cats to keep alittle back pressure..... you stand to make a good 14-20rwhp if this works correctly

i LOVE this forum...... by far the best forum ive been involved with, and on par with nagtroc.
