Nice exhaust video, this should help some folks out in selecting what they want.

Nawaaz yours sounded the sickest in that video. that volume the no cats adds is awesome. that is how mine sounded once i added the midpipe such a sick sound and so much more power.

was something wrong with that meister car?? it sounded like something was rattling on it. maybe he had a hanger loose??

It's no biggie, but my 2nd dyno chart does not show the rpm range. Therefore, here's the one which shows it:

Nawaaz - did you get the new Powerchip tune?

I have seen the dyno for it and it makes +40WHP when applied to the stock car (i.e. no other mods).

I believe Powerchip gave me their latest tune when they came over to Houston, TX this past weekend.

I just got it done on the 14th of November, so I guess I'm in good shape.

Possibly - it may not have been released for the US market yet - it is available internationally though....

BTW congrats - very good results - massive gains from the bolt-on mods...

I'll be doing a similar write up early December although based upon measured torque values output from ECU diagnostics as I've found they look to be quite accurate.

I witnessed how much time Jeremy put into getting your tune just right, and it looks like it definitely paid off.

Your car is a freakin' scary beast, Nawaaz. Enjoy it and stay safe!
+1 - just noticed that looking at the graphs properly - that is a really nice tune...

F yea Nawaaz, Great job! All your hard research paid off, congrats! Now, you know you need to take that power to the track. Make it a family outing, bring 'em all so they can feel they are part of the action and a part of your passion. See you in January?

Nice Congrats Nawaaz its right inline with my gains! but in a whole other state! There should be alot less doubt about the performance of the Gintani mods coupled with the Tune! once again congrats and thanks for taking the time to do so I know it seemed like you had your exhaust forever but it finally paid off!...

Gintani/Powerchip FTW

Makes me want to go totally catless again

That's about the only useful knowledge to be derived from such comparisons, and in that regard your results are impressive. It also assumes that the dyno wasn't operated by the selling installer, but that's a whole other topic of discussion.

At any rate, congrats!

Its not BS.. He would make 400whp on your average Dynojet without a doubt. Thats a legit 500hp N/A BOLT ON M3. Hell I made the same gains and put down 398whp on a Dynapack that reads somewhat like a DJ there are a few DJ dynos out there that are calibrated to read lower like this mustang or some Dyno Dynamics but the norm it would break 400 for sure.

That is a great horsepower/torque gain. Its good you did it on the same Mustang Dyno for a consistent result.

Great Job!!

I'm making 382whp on a Dyno Dynamics, and my tune isn't even optimized. I'm at like 490-500hp at the crank!

Everyone with full Gintani catless + tune is putting up these numbers consistently. Good shit.

So, what? It doesn't matter. That's why it's BS. I repeat . . . all that matters is the gain, and that is very impressive and very legit.

But, I'm not going to enter into one of your patented forum "watering contests." I've seen too many of them.

I went with the AA pulley because Gintani had not yet released the '09 version (double-sided belt?) at the time of my purchase. AA was the next reliable option, that I trusted.

Thank you Kevin!

***For those of you who are unaware, Kevin was the gentleman who performed all the installs for my bolt-on's, such as: the full exhaust, pulley, rpi scoops. I will be getting my ssk installed by him tomorrow, hopefully.

If you're in the DFW area, I HIGHLY recommend Kevin to do all of your installs. I couldn't trust anyone more than how much I trust him. Simply an AMAZING guy, who puts so much care into the work of a client's vehicle!

PM me if anyone ever needs his help on any installs.

When I purchased my RPi full exhaust setup I was debating between it and the Gintani. It now appears that the Gintani does make more HP than the RPi which does dissapoint me a little. I'm gonna have to think about if it is worth changing exhausts to pick up some more HP.

Great information Naawaz. We all really appreciate the time you took to provide these numbers. Congratulations on your perf gains!

Curious if anyone has done a dyno test (before/after) with just the Gintani rear section (no xpipe or cat removal)? I'm looking at purchasing this but am curious how it stacks up against other exhausts out there. I believe Active says their signature will put down 12-15whp...is Gintani's rear section putting down similar numbers?

From all of my research and from what I've heard, The Gintani rear section makes more power than the AA.

I don't know where I've heard this from, but perhaps AA's rear section loses power?? I don't know if that's true or not though...

...So please don't quote me on that.
