Thumbs up ~ Gintani ~

I can't say enough great things about these guys. Not only did Alex get me hooked up with their gorgeous exhaust, but he also installed it for free, replaced a broken exhaust hanger for free, and then strapped it to the dyno to make sure the car was happy . Anyone who is considering doing business with these guys should rest assured that they will be in good hands. Alex, Arnold & Raz...thanks again guys, and see you next trip .

I went with powertrip to the install and have to say, those are some of the most stand up guys in the business, really top notch. And of course the review that really matters: Their sh*t kicks ss! They have my business and I definately look forward to working with them.

And don't call them just to jerk them around for hours waiting for a smokin deal. Go in. Talk to em. And then call your bank

My rear-section exhaust will be here on Monday or Tuesday, I am so looking forward to having it installed.

I have spoken with Alex on many occasions and he is genuinely a nice guy who really cares about what he does and about customer satisfaction. From everything I have seen and heard, I am really looking forward getting this system put on.

My only concerns right now pre-install are drone and (due to the recent thread about loss in low-end TQ on after market systems) a loss in low-end power.

I hope both apprehensions are put to rest when I actually get the system installed.

Don't worry about a loss of torque...Noodlefoxes and I both noticed that my car had more bottom end with the Gintani (vs the AA I had installed).

Good to hear they are legit. Far too many shady people in this business. I'm pretty set on going with them for an exhaust solution, maybe even an ECU solution as well.

Gintani is where it is at. They are very nice people, and they take their work seriously. They put a lot of effort into making top notch products, and they don't just build them for looks. Gintani products are putting down massive gains, and their rear section exhaust system is by far the best souding and performing exhaust period. Alex is extremely smart, and he puts a lot of passion into his products.

+1 on Alex.. He's a very knowledgeable and very nice guy. I've had him on the phone for a hour at a time before...

Definitely agree... I never noticed this vendor section so I am late to the party! But Alex was awesome to deal with and I couldn't be happier with my exhaust!

The people at Gintani are awesome to deal with, they are always willing to work with you until you're happy which no one in this business does.
