Talking Gintani Race Axleback Exhaust Installed :)

Just got my Gintani Race mufflers with the dual wall tips installed today at Gintani. There was some miss-communication regarding when the exhaust was going to be ready but it was all cleared up at the end thanks to Gintanis great customer service.

I included 2 videos in the end of this post.

The exhaust has a very very DEEP and BASSY tone to it. It feels like your entire body is shaking from the inside when it goes past you regardless if you're outside of the car or in another car.

It is very loud from 1-4k, incredibly deep bassy tone and noise. After that it kind of settles down and the engine is heard more, but from the outside you can still hear the exhaust. It is the loudest in higher gears 1-4k cruising at normal speeds 30-40, and almost all throttle blips are like mini nukes. WOT isn't as loud as would have wanted it to be but I already knew that reading other reviews.

Overall I am very happy about the look of it, but I need a diffuser ASAP lol. Very happy about the tone, but definitely want it to be louder. Need to get a catless or HFC X-Pipe soon so it could be louder up top. I don't know if I'm used to drone or if there isn't much but I don't feel much disturbance in the car other than the bass of the exhaust. I like it, feels like I'm driving a monster. Idle itself is insanely loud, cold start is crazy lmao. All it needs is an X-Pipe and perfect exhaust















Here is a video, revving it a little:

Really can't tell how loud it is but you can get an idea of the tone

Here is a video of it in a parking lot lmao:

btw, this exhaust may be loud enough for some people or too loud for others, but for me I personally like LOUD exhausts. This is certainly LOUD but I wouldn't mind it being louder Don't think I'm saying it's not loud, I just love loud as fuck exhausts.

What diffuser are you going to get? Do you have one now that won't work?

Thanks

I don't have a diffuser but want a CF one that goes all the way across the rear bumper and hugs it snugly. Havent looked into it that much yet but will soon.

And thanks guys. I have 100 miles on it already. Cant wait till break in is over to see the difference in tone.

350 miles in, the exhaust already sounds a little different. It screams alot more than the first 100 miles.

Just hit 500 I went on a road trip and back this weekend that's why I stacked on so many miles lmao. I turned on every single fucking car alarm on one of the main streets in Glendale. And by every single I mean 30+ cars. One after another. Certain rpm's just vibrate the earth next to you its sick. It sounds fully broken in and the revs are godly.

One thing that kind of worries me is how loud it is at night with no other cars or noise around you. Yesterday a cop was next to me for 4 streets and I was going maybe 28-30 in a 40 just so he doesn't hear the sound (which is IMPOSSIBLE). I shit my PANTS. He was staring right at me for a good period of time and I made a right as soon as I could. It really is terrifying at night. Wake everyone up :| gotta live with it though haha. That concludes this write up (until I get the x-pipe)

I have the sport, and after it was broken in it sounds awesome. I didn't get the race because I used to live in a condo...but the sport still sets off some alarms.

Ps when I put my exhaust on I immediately got a rear diffuser to offset the huge tips. I'd recommend u look into the hamman rear diffuser. All my mods are coming up for sale if you're interested

Does the Gintani work with any aftermarket diffuser/cover?

Want to order one but want to make sure it will work with the exhaust first.

BTW- great writeup, getting mine installed on the car as well shortly.

Hi , looks great, is yours a hamman difuser? I have a dinan exhaust, any idea which difuser fits it?

Just curious, why are you selling your mods and what are they?
