Very impressed with the Gintani Sport Exhaust so far.. loud without being completely obnoxious. Youtube videos really don't do this justice.

Also had my 275/30R19 (f) and 295/30R19 (r) V12s put on the stock ZCPs; they look like they were made for this car, very aggressive and fit perfectly; zero rubbing.

Thanks to the guys at ZR Auto for looking after everything, will report again when they are broken in. And pics too of course.

I was just out for a drive bedding in mine, they are starting to work well now. The first couple of stops leaving Tunerworks where a little never racking in rush hour.

Cool!
I've had my race on for a few weeks now and it's getting louder and louder as the days pass. A friend of mine lives across the street and I didn't tell him about the new exhaust. The other day he said "I swear your car seems to have gotten louder"

I can't wait to hear your Race! You must keep the valve open all the time .. haha

I was worried the Sport wouldn't be loud enough, but it is for sure! I still hope it gets a little louder after break in. Next up the catless Xpipe & tune.

I'm really happy .. these things are engineered very well and look amazing too. Feels like I'm in a totally different car.

Ever got any tickets or attention from the cops?

Ohhh the sport will definitely get louder. It seems to take a bit if time to fully break in.
I haven't had any problems with cops but I usually up shift quick when I see one. Been pulled over a few times for other things but always turn the car off and roll down the windows quick.
The race is loud as FUK!! I keep the valves open except highway speeds. The drone, on the highway, with the valves open is almost unbearable from 2,800-3,200 RPM but the valves closed removes probably 80% of the drone.

Nice. People must wonder wtf is coming when they hear your race exhaust approaching.

If the sport is loud, the race must be insane .. lol Noise snare? Those guys will need a seismograph!

I am going to show how little i know about P-cars... Is that a 996 or 997?

I had a run with a GT3 when my car was stock I did pretty well so I must have been the first one.
