Evolve Automotive Full E-Tronic Exhaust



My personal favorite simple because of how clean the tone and pitch is. It doesn't sound distastefully violent or harsh. Based off some reviews, drone seems to be very minimal. The biggest perk being the valved system that does not hinder flow or power like all the other valved systems. Gorgeous exhaust tips! Solid power gains!

Go to 4:08 for tire smoke...

Sadly, these videos do this setup no justice. I need to invest in a decent mic.
