Exhaust: Meisterschaft or Gintani?

Exhaust: Meisterschaft or Gintani?


I'm making my final decision what do you think, Meisterschaft or Gintani?
I want something stupid loud but still a classy noise. I have a daily driver so I don't care about it.. the louder the better.

I got myself a Eisenmann Sport with Fabspeed X-Pipe and 200 Cell HFC.

but if i was gonna go louder i would go for the Gintani...i feel it looks better and it sounds much more stable than the Meisterschaft.

Of those two Gintani all the way. I had the pleasure of hanging out at Gintani w/ their crew on Friday. Shop and the guys over there are top notch! They really know their shit!

Gintani sounds too much like a Chevy small block V8 on steroids. It's a little thick sounding to me. The Meisterschaft on the other hand sounds a little more exotic, more refined. That's just my opinion, but I'm sure the fanboys will chime in and flame me for my comment. Either way, I doubt you'll ever feel the extra 10hp that an axle back will give you. Buy it for sound, not power.

It would be my absolute pleasure!

(keep in mind, this is the full catless system, and not the rear section only)

I'll quote xxe92xx from another thread, since he has had the opportunity to try out both the Gintani & Meisterschaft (w/x-pipe of course)

meisterschaft gt2 (redline motorworks)

the sound: at idle it has a deep v8 rumble..when you go through the powerband it screams F1..the sound is more high pitched and is very loud...there is drone but nothing that will irritate the shit out of you

the quality: i posted a few close up pictures in a thread somewhere....but the craftsmanship of this muffler is no joke it is of high quality so dont let anyone here who doesnt know shit tell you otherwise


gintani race (alex/arno at gintani)

the sound: at idle it is much deeper than the gt2..when you go through the powerband that deepness just gets louder and stronger i cant really explain it but it sounds amazing...the sound is definitely lower and deeper but isnt as loud as the gt2...the drone is very minimal

the quality: it is a simplier design that makes the most power of the two, which is the main reason i switched from the gt2 to gintani...gotta love the ceramic coating


let me know if you need to know anything else in more detail

thanks Nawaaz

if you want stupid crazy loud OP then go with the GT2 w/ x-pipe of course....the Gintani race wont be as loud and crazy...but either way you will scare the shit out of a "normal" person

the tones of both are very different...the GT2 is really high(like F1) and Gintani race is really low(very very deep)

if you got any question let me know
