Vorsteiner Ti Exhaust Dyno?

Anyone seen a dyno from VRS? I dont worry too much about exhaust systems and HP gain but I also dont want any losses.

Highly unlikely that there would be any losses. They test these systems prior to release, and such a thing would ruin their reputation.

I, too, am seriously interested in this system since it offers significant weight reduction, and would like to see dyno results as well.

Hence why I am curious why there have been no Dyno results posted.

For the price the weight savings and quality (at least in pics) looks very attractive.

Good news Jason, Vorsteiner will be doing a baseline vs. exhaust dyno in a couple of weeks as soon as these are shipping out.

An educated guess leads me to believe they rushed this system out just to gain market share with the titanium system with added weight reduction.

That being said I do not believe they did any extensive R&D in terms of performance given they have no performance figures other than weight.
