Review of RPi GT Exhaust

I don't even know where to start but to start it off, all I can say is wow.

I spoke to Eloy on Thursday about hearing the system and asked him to make a video for me. He said he would do so but he recommends I come in and listen to it. I drove down on Saturday to see what the big fuss was about, Joe took me out for a spin in the car and I was like... What the hell? It's not even loud. So I got out of the car and he went for a spin.
MAN OH MAN. I HAVE NEVER HEARD A EXHAUST SYSTEM THAT GOOD IN MY LIFE! I was shocked, it sounded like a beast just got let out of it's cage. What amazed me so much was that you can't hear anything from inside the cabin. There was no drone either.. My first thought was, I can finally use my bluetooth.

I went inside to check if they had any other systems left, and I got lucky. I got the last one!
What really blows me away is, I went to RPi just to hear the exhaust and the next thing you know, 20 minutes later my car was on the lift getting worked on.

Anyways,
Eloy told me to go for a spin and see what I think... Right there, I felt the power increase. I went up and down the street, the back tires had so much more wheel spin, I was in shock.
I let two other members also drive my car, they were also surprised that a exhaust can make the car so powerful.

It was off to the test, I got on the freeway! The power was amazing. There was no noise inside the cabin, and so freaking loud! I've only logged 100 miles on the system but I LOVE it. LOVE it.

While I was exiting the freeway someone rolled down their window and said "Man, What you have under the hood?" I replied "Just a exhaust system" His mouth dropped "Wow, that shit sounded fucking amazing"

After that, I went to my friends house who is a member on this forum, I handed him the keys the first thing he said is, "Holy shit, how is your car so much faster, did you get the headers too?"

It really blows me away how a exhaust system can add SO much power. If anyone wants to hear the system locally, give me a PM. (Don't get mad at me when you call Eloy placing your order)

I have to thank Eloy for designing such a amazing system and at such a affordable price. I would never think I can get a full exhaust system (headers back) for less then $3,000.

I made some videos but they aren't that good, I've been really busy this weekend and I'll make a better one when I get a chance but for now, these will do.

- Josh

If the video is not showing,
.

I'll make a video with the windows up next.

Video Details:
Both windows are down, some normal driving with a little gas..
Once I hit the stop sign, I go WOT. Those turns are being taken at 65-70 mph.
I highly recommend this exhaust setup and KW suspension for the ultimate driving machine.

BTW, Eloy does NOT discount the systems at all but if you tell him Josh (tightie) referred you, he will knock off $50.

If you tell him I referred you he takes off $49...

I don't think anyone needs any reminders on how this is the best priced full system available for the car, PERIOD.

There is honestly no drone while driving. On a cold start, there is drone from 1500 rpm to 2000.
Come swing by, we will go for a spin.

Less than $3k fo a header-back exhaust?!? Does that include the ECU/DME tune to eliminate the 02 sensor warning? Is it a true tune (hp/tq gains) or just a tune to eliminate the O2 sensor warning? So does it sound like a high-pitched tuned v8 or a typical Mustang deep v8 growl? U really can't hear it inside the cabin?!? I wanna hear it when driving b/c it's way too quiet fo me (oem exhaust)! Thx!

EDIT: I can't see/hear $hit b/c those 2 YouTube vids aren't compatible w/an iPhone. I'll check it out when I wake up since I'm too lazy to get outta bed right now, LOL!

Come on, read the original thread and you can find the answers ON YOUR OWN and did you somehow miss the videos posted?

U just like to annoy peeps don't u? LOL!

1) I DID READ the original thread & it said $26xx plus $1k fo ECU tune to eliminate O2 sensor. Tightie said less than $3k. I was confused b/c I didn't know if RPi now offers 2 tunes like AA does (tune to eliminate O2 warning & another fo that & hp/tq gains).

2) I'm using my iPhone (in bed, LOL) & it won't lemme watch those vids. Besides, everyone has different pc speakers so sometimes it's hard to hear what an exhaust really sounds like unless it's in person. G'nite!

So since you are using your Iphone you want me to describe the sound to you? It sounds beautiful, like small animals frolicking on soft ground in an enchanted meadow, and then a lion comes by and roars and the animals shit themselves in terror. The lions pitch is deep and muscular, but with a hint of high urgency to it. A roar that really conveys the power of a beautiful, yet terrifying beast.

Now

I

am

just

going

to

make

you

scroll

on

your

Iphone.









a lot.


Oh, and if you READ the original thread you answered your own question. Tightie said less than 3k for the exhaust.... and the original thread said 26xx plus 1k for the exhaust AND ecu... so... math... is... hard.

Gnite.

Thanks for the clips. Good job RPI! Definitely a very nice alternative to the over priced mufflers out on the market right now. Sounds loud though. Any decibal readings?
