Valvetronic exhaust options ?

What are my options for a valve-controlled exhaust ?

So far I have found IPE F1 exhaust...

Is there any other system that would be similar ?

Go with Corsa, no need for valves at all and the exhaust note is absolutely beautiful.

The Evolve E-tronic is a great system with excellent build quality. Also does not lose power with the valves closed like other valvetronic systems

Valved systems are like two systems in one and offer the best of both worlds. Once you have a valved system it's hard to go back.

I recommend a system that uses vacuum controlled valves (like IPE, Kreissieg, etc.) instead of electric valves so you don't have to replace them

Also, the standard, non-F1 system from IPE has a superior x pipe design that doesn't impede flow like the F1 x pipe.

I have been running the Evolve E-Tronic Exhaust since October and I have to say that it is the best sounding exhaust to date. I have run several different exhaust setups and always got bored of it (because of sound, and pitch) But with the Evolve unit you can open and close the valve and the pitch is just amazing, I have heard the kressig unit and IPE unit and was not impressed it sounded more like a fully catless unit. The Evolve unit is just a clean pitch and I love driving my car.

what makes your evolve so special then...? isnt the sound all personal preference? i mean i never heard the evolve in person, but comparing the kreissieg to evolve in videos alone, i think the kreissieg sounds better to me... and its not 9-10k for that exhaust, noone pays retail now a days...

I never said that one sounded better than the other and yes it is personal preference. I have heard the Kreissieg on your old car and for me it was way to loud and for my taste and honestly sounds like the IPE exhaust, just wondering why people jump on it for the price that it is.

well i guess everyone is different when it comes to the loudness of one or the other exhaust, but i love the sound of a catless exhaust or just the ear piercing sound of the kreissieg... i guess since im still pretty young, i can live with a crazy loud exhaust! but you know you gotta pay to play!
