Meisterschaft GT vs GT2 - How to differentiate?

Hello,

I have found an exhaust on my local classifieds and the guy claims to be selling a GT2 exhaust. However, on the actual exhaust it doesn't say anywhere if whether it is a GT or GT2. When going to inspect them, is there anyway of actually figuring out which model it is as I have heard both mufflers are identical in terms of physical construction.

Thanks

Impossible. The GT and GT2 are identical on the exterior. its all internal muffler baffling and routing that separates the two. you MAY be able to look on the name plate and see if you see "SCH3" somewhere on it, and if you do, its a GT2 system, but thats not 100% on all of them that were produced.

I have the gt and it's stamped "GT" on a plate on the exhaust.. I think the gt2 is stamped also but not 100% on that more like 95% sure..

This is the picture I have of the name plate, the quality isn't great at all so I'll look for the SCH3, although from the picture I see "05" as number, im not sure if the SCH3 is so supposed to be there or not. Thank you for the help, now I just have to go inspect it physically.

This is a gt2. Can't remember what's on the name plate but I think it's the same plate as above.

Is there a big enough weight difference between the two? If so you could throw it on a scale
