Why not just go full x pipe and get more power?

Because test pipes are about 1k cheaper and no amount of R&D will convince me that some steel tubing is worth $1400.

I agree, test pipes and a tune are the same power as a x pipe and tune. To me the test pipes sound better too, I know sound is subjective but I hate rasp.

^I've heard the oem exhaust mod with test pipes and it sounds amazing. I agree that a full x pipe will sound too raspy. I already have the oem exhaust mod...just want the test pipes:

That was my initial guess. Another fluke.

i just learned all about ttp but does anyone know why turner doesn't sell these anymore??? im guessing they aren't planning on selling these anymore but has anyone talked to someone at turner directly? for something that sold so well they seem to not want to take advantage of supply and demand

It's a lot of work to have someone dedicated to fabricate it. Ourselves and Turner have races left for the season and that's a priority. We are almost finished with our test pipe, just have to finish a few race cars. I say next week for sure. Be patient please we will be able to meet demand and have a set to show off!
