Gintani Race with Fabspeed x-pipe?

Anyone ever run a Gintani Race with fabspeed x-pipe? I know majority of members with Gintani catback are paired with Gintani x-pipe. But I can't spend 2k on an x-pipe and HFC's, so if I pair my Gintani Race with just a Fabspeed x-pipe (which retails at $795), would it be fine?

Any clips?

Dude that would be fine.

Are you going catless or HFC fabspeed?

I had the fabspeed HFC and it was great quality and good gains.

It's gonna be loud as hell with a gintani race

Your only issue might be with fitment. BTW, Fabspeed x-pipe with HFC's is around $2k. If you’re going catless this setup will be LOUD!!!!

Many people on this forum hate when they find out someone half their age is driving a quarter million dollar car. Maybe its envy or simply just the fact that they think that a person my age (21) is too young to be driving that sort of car. What they need to understand is that everyone is different and for some people things don't always run the same way as they do for others.

My father specializes in pulmonary and cardiovascular care and internal medicine in private practice and I am a pre-medical student. I have also been fortunate enough to earn my own money (100% my own earnings) by means of which I don't feel I have to mention here. I have a very close relationship with my father and we both enjoy cars so we bought the Lamborghini together, just for fun. My father believes I am responsible and mature enough and I have never done anything to break that trust. Let me also add that I am never under the influence wether it is on or off the road. Anything that alters a persons state of mind (drugs or alcohol) is strictly forbidden in my religion. I believe that many teen car accidents are a cause of alcohol. And alcohol and fast cars don't go well together. So, I guess you can say that in that category, I am safer than 98% of teens in the US.

I know the typical stereotype of an exotic car driver is that they should be able to afford anything and everything. But notice in my post I did not state that I cannot afford the parts. I simply am not able to purchase the parts at the moment as I have many other expenses at this certain point in my life.

This is why I didn't mention anything about my age on the thread in which I posted the pictures of my Lamborghini. I figured that people would hate and just tell me that I am way too young to be driving that car. I decided to leave that information out. So if anyone on this post has anything to say in terms of people my age being irresponsible, please keep it to yourself.

I'm not saying you (DevJ) have said anything to offend me, but i'm just simply explaining my reasoning for having a Lamborghini but not being able to purchase parts, mainly to prevent further "attacks" on this post.

And about the x-pipe, i've decided to just stay with only axle back for now. I want to gradually increase my mods so I can actually feel the increase in power mod after mod, rather than doing it all at once.

Well then I assume you know where i'm coming from. I'm sure your parents are proud of you wanting to pursue the same career as them and as a result, bought you an M3. Awesome man, i'm majoring in biochemistry as well. Good luck with undergrad/med school.

Eh, I got a full ride into a pretty good college. M3 was just a perk for being valedictorian I guess lol..biochem's tough shit. Pchem is quite difficult now..good luck to you as well..PM me if you ever have questions about any exhaust set up..I know a few guys with various set ups and have heard many of them

Enjoy that lambo

Damn, I'm in the wrong business shooting bad guys for less than 6 figures a year. Enjoy your rides, you diserve them for all that hard work and school.

I think most older fella's have an issue with young people getting a sports car from Mom/Dad but If I had that kind of cash and my kids were in school doing what you guys are doing and foremost were responsible, I'd get them something that expensive too.

About your OP question, I'm running a Encore X-pipe with HFC & resonators. It's pared up to a Remus Sport and sounds good IMO. Not crazy stupid loud but has a nice rumble to it. I get a few CEL when using gas thats 95 ROZ so I try to fill her up with 98 ROZ or super-plus here in Europe and then no CEL light.

I think if you go with an exhaust that's "racing" with HFC or no CAT's, it's gonna be prett damn loud. Maybe a bit too much?? Good luck
