Looks like a rats nest to me.

One of those "sets of cats" are probably resonators of some sort.

that looks really sweet and REALLLLLY expensive. I would personally prefer to see that as more straight pipe and not as many bends. Also looks like it has 2 sets of cats, an x-pipe, 1 set of resonators and 1 set of mufflers..........I would prefer fewer cats as well in an aftermarket piece.

basically what I am saying is i'm sure you could make a much cheaper exhaust that would hold up just as good and make more HP. Of course then you couldnt brag to your buddies about your 10k titanium exhaust.

alot of the cost is associated w/ full titanium...trying to weld titanium again I have read requires specific tools/machines/experience etc. I agree 10k is ridiculous...even 5k is kinda steep for an exhaust. But titanium exhausts also have their own specific 'tone' which sound alot different from other exhausts.

With an N/A V8 motor it is good to have the added back pressure for more power... F/I motors benifit from zero back pressure on the other hand...

So here's the $11500 question:
1. How many people would buy this exhaust without real performance data?
2. How many people would buy this exhaust without hearing it?

I'm guessing that 2) may be important to some, but not important to others. I'm also guessing that 1) is important to almost everybody who's considering buying an $11500 exhaust. But just in case it's not, here's question 3:

3. How many people would just buy it based on looks alone?

I would buy it without data. I had an amuse ti exhaust on my 97 supra turbo and it was ultra light and put out more power than the hks ti exhaust that I had on previously. I'm sure that this will be another great exhaust from amuse.
