Gintani Full Catless X - Pipe / Mufflers - 2nd listen

ran into a M3 today, has full catless gintani exhaust system...i could hear him coming from far far away an man did it sound good...and its amazing cause the exhaust has no raspyness at all...(almost every x pipe system around is quite raspy, and ones that arent that raspy are quiet, like my akrapovic system)... That system is just a clean sound...like a nascar and a ferrari bred a child...low rpm is deep and high rpm screams....i had heard it before, but really got to today.. and got to say thats one of the sickest exhausts there is...too loud for me...but talking sound alone ,the sickest by far!

NAWAZZ...thought this would add to your excitement...i see you post everytime a gintani exhaust is mentioned..

i've considered the gintani myself, but it sounds like it may be too loud for me.

sammy, do you think it's louder than an eisenmann race w/ fabspeed hfc's and non-resonated x-pipe?

Is there drone at 2000 RPM and 3000 RPM. A lot of exhaust seem to have a drone at these two RPM's. It makes cruising around town and on the freeway a headache.

I can't wait for my cat-back Gintani! The full system sounds just sick but I couldn't spend the extra $. Installed my matte black grills and GP Thunders today. The mod bug has officially taken over! Eibachs or H&R springs next for my stock 19's! Decisions decisions! : )

I just HAD to have the full catless set-up.

I haven't even heard Gintani's rear/full exhaust system in person ever before, but I'm very confident that it'll exceed all my expectations after it's installed.

cant say for sure cause ive only heard hear eisenmann race w/ stock x pipe in person....and only seen vids of the eisen race w/ AA and fabspeed x pipe in vids...but i know for a fact that pairing those will be loud...so if your cool with that set up, im sure you would be cool with the full gintani....in my opinion the difference wont be that much..like compairing level 8 volume to level 9

Nawaaz.. make sure you post a video so I could be envious of the full system and drool! Aren't many out there for either system...so I keep listening to the same ones on youtube. Like a classic rock song that will never get old!

hahaha No worries. I have BIG plans when I make several different vids of how my M3 sounds with Gintani's full catless system.

Don't get upset though, since it may be a while before I get a chance to post them up.

Thanks man!

hahaha.....He's like the only other one with the full catless Gintani, I think?

I don't know if Jonmartin has the full set-up or not.....I think he may just have the rear section..
