Just wanted to share with everyone the exhaust that i have going on this week. It will be on the dyno with stock parts, joe-z intake and toms filter, and the exhaust to show the improvements all the way around.



It is a true quad exhaust system that weighs in at 69lbs! It also should put up some great numbers (more to come on that in the next few weeks when the surprises get let out).

also mine is going to be ceramic coated black the whole thing so it should be nice and sleeper/stealth looking to match my blacked out car and rims.

Uhm i dont think so. I go to gotwheels.com right across from TAV racing in doral. I give all my business to both of them bc they always take care of me. Only time im in pembroke pines is for the dealership or the mall and used to be chipotle but now i have one closer. lol

My review wont be for a while as i will be out of the area. but i can tell you to expect a lot more parts out of ISSForged. My car is in there hands for some development now!

I wish the tips didn't stick out so much and more flush with the bumper...just looks weird sticking out so much.
you know its really not that bad. and once you here it and feel the added hp/tq its well worth it!

Why conform to standards. its to be different. and these tips wont burn your bumper like a standard one would. Also the stock ones are fake and are only cosmetic. So if i dont keep the stock oval ones and i gain thirty hp and shed weight i am happy.

I know they are fake and I agree with the gain in hp and loss of weight. It's the round tips in a trapezoid that doesn't look good to me. It would still be good to have the oval shapes as an option IMO to eliminate the fakeness.

Agreed on the aethetics. It does look a little "rough" and unfinished.

I see where you guys are coming from, however i dont know if they can change the tips bc there is a protective tip over it (almost a tip in a tip and the medal is connected and bends) so that you dont burn a) yourself b) the bumper. Ill ask ISS to see what they can do. I am just beta testing this exhaust this is not the final production one. so the more feedback from potential buyers the better!

if the tips were more flush with the bumper i'm sure it would look better. i love the look of the greddy set up. if they looked like that (and the price was inline with other catbacks) i'd buy it.

price is inline with other catbacks. also tomorrow i will update with new pics of what the system looks like in person "" they have also brought them in a little like i said and they are flush with the bumper however bc of the angle of the pics it looks more dramatic. I promise you wont be disappointed!
