I watched the videos a few more times. You can tell his has a really nice tone and its loud as hell. Im sure it sounds insane but the video quality is pretty shitty so you cant tell what it really sounds like.

Did you feel an increase in power? Im curious to see the difference in power between this and the rpi system

lol yes like I said the videos arent very good, sorry. But yes in person it sounds insane and the car does feel like it gained more power. It seems to light up the tires more between shifts now. N traction control light (when its on) lights up more as well during acceleration.

4) Pics of it off the M3 if you have any?

5) What did you do about the CEL (that's going to show up if it hasn't already)?

6) We need a headerback dyno shootout of Gintani vs RPi. As in, stock M3 vs Gintani vs RPi all on one M3. I'll gladly chip in for labor & dyno session if others do so as well.

Thx!
Well this is just the prototype and all the info your asking should b available with in a week and I will post it ASAP. All I know is its a lot lighter then stock, It sounds amazing and the car feels like its pulling a lot harder now... If u have any questions u can just call Alex at Gintani and ask him personally. Hes a super koo guy, Im sure he wont mind. Heres the shop number (818) 787-8260

Wow just from the Piping I can tell its going to be loud! Just my Kind of Taste! I love the
Straight Flow Design. I'm Really Liking it... I would also love to see Gintanis Headers as
I'm going to change Everything on the Exhaust, from the Headers Back to the Exhaust!!

Niterider- Does Your car have the Black Wheels with the Yellow Strips on the Lip?
If so I think I might have seen your car once in Glendale on Brand Blvd. Infront of
Pacific BMW but it was parked across the street infront of the Nissan Dealer! Was that Your car?? I remember the Matt Black Exhaust Tips!

Also any Word on Gintanis Headers?

Ive had the privilege of hearing and driving this beast. This exhaust sounds absurd! Even borderline V8 Ferrari at certain areas in the rpm band and the gains are good.

This company does great work!

yes what he said, it is super loud compared to stock. If u dont want to go to loud but still want a really nice sound just get Gintanis rear muffler section, it sounds really nice for just a rear section.

So I just thought I would share this with u guys. After doing some research on exhaust flow etc...I was noticing how most of the aftermarket exhaust systems for our cars are making the x pipe right before the resonators (towards the middle). Where as Gintanis systems x pipe is right after the section 1 (more towards the front). So after reading about flow and how it pulls and pushes, technically this system should have some of the best flow and the resonators and mufflers provide the backpressure.

This is due to the x pipes location. It was put where it doesnt interfere with the exhaust flow. As one of the banks crosses it pushes one side and pulls the other bank through (Venturi Effect). This keeps the flow going. Also if u look closely there is also 2 slight bends after the x pipe also making the flow continue. There is no real sharp angles in the whole exhaust systems. Other companies seem to be making their angles sharper and if u look at their systems it seems as if the exhaust flow needs to work a bit harder. Now It really wont make a big difference cause their all mandrel bent but it might be enough for a few more ponies. So I guess the dyno will say it all.

I'm really interested in this system also. I like the straight flow design of the exhaust.

I was also intersted in the RPI setup until I saw the 90 degree bend right before the muffler.

why would that bend sway you away from rpi? it certainly doesnt hurt the hp gain as proof by the dyno.
