One of the meanest sounding axle backs IMO

Its a great sounding axleback. In terms of loudness its just as (if not louder) than the meisterschaft gt2, with a much more american muscle tone to it. The axleback is not overwhelming, I say go for it. Pairing it with a catless xpipe down the road however will make it extremely loud!

Hmmmm, wish i knew what you considered "extremely loud", cause right now i'm running a Gintani Race rear section with a Challenge Street x-pipe(deletion of secondary cats) and i'm thinking of going to a Challenge Race x-pipe to delete the primary cats(for a bit of a power bump). My setup now is not too loud but does have a bit of a drone and a deep rumble around 2-3k rpms, which is good, but does make your head vibrate at times and shake the dishes in the house when starting up Not sure i wanna go "extremely loud" though

I'm very tolerable to sound - I've ran the Meisterschaft GT2 on my car with a catless Gintani xpipe. Then I switched out the Meisterschaft GT2 for a Gintani sport catback because I couldnt handle to rasp/drone. So suffice to say I love loud exhausts.
The only thing you have to worry about with the Gintani race and a full catless xpipe is the drone at low RPM. It wont rasp or sound over the top annoying like my MeisterschaftGT2/catless Gintani did (I think this setup sounded horrendous because of mixing and matching - it was extremely raspy and raw; making downshifts sound like gunshots and mashing the pedal sound like a nascar). The Gintani race with catless xpipe will be LOUD though. I would not run it on my car if its a DD because the drone would start getting under my skin after a while Personally I think its the best sounding loud exhaust setup for this car, but I'd rather have a little quieter of an exhaust and be able to hear myself think in the drivers seat

I can relate, maybe not quite as bad, but more like golf balls

Yeah, i've been on the fence about it. The drone does get to me now sometimes, if i'm cruising in 6th, around 70mph, i have to turn the radio up to hear my songs and can't hear my kids from the back seat sometimes. but overall i do love the exhaust sound. I just keep hearing you have to remove the primaries to get any "real" power..............although i REALLY want to go the SC route! Just trying to justify it

Talking Gintani Race is loud

I have Gintani Race exhaust on my M3 with a AA X-pipe Catless. You can not beat the sound. When ever I drive the car in any city I don't know, I do my best to try to keep the sound down at slow speeds like 25-35 mph. This is when the RPM's are low and the sound can cause some unwanted attention by cops mainly when you have to take off from a stop light. Keep the RPMs above 2500-3000 you will be ok anything lower could be problems. You will see what I mean when you have it installed . Eveyone love the sound at High RPM's and when I go on road trips I do alot of car shows and events. If you are driving behind me on a caravan or road trip you better turn your radio up or off and enjoy the sound like one of my corvette friends like to. I love my Gintani Race because I like my exhaust sound loud The race exhaust will drone but it don't bother me I just learned to deal with it and enjoy the awesome exhaust sound . Congrats on your Gintani Race exhaust

I think I'm gonna have to step up to the race soon, or at least the hybrid.
I'd get the valve again since it's all wired up and it may make the drone bearable on the highway.
has anyone done the valve option on the race?
