Yes, I still think the AA exhaust is "tamed", keep in mind Im running a challenge x pipe, and its makes a big difference. If it were just the catback, it would be much quieter. The 2nd main reason I wanted to go back to the Gintani is because it had much better power delivery and a lot more torque in the powerband, especially down low. Once the exhaust was switched back, IMMEDIATELY I noticed the lower torque/power difference. Coming back to on the freeway, I let it rip.... and ahhhhhhhhhhhhh was so in love again. The gintani without a doubt , makes better power, again this is my experience... lets not be immature and start a war. As stated before theres nothing wrong with the AA exhaust, however its just not for me.

Thanks Gintani
Another Gintani fanboi. Glad to see things haven't changed. Great impartial review.

how is it impartial? he clearly says aa wasnt for him so he gave us his opinion on what HE thought. if he threw out aa i could understand but he didnt. im sorry but i dont understand all the haters on gintani. op got what was best for his needs and that happened to be gintani. if he chose aa you wouldnt have thought twice about saying anything
