RPI GT Exhaust; First Impressions
I just got my RPI mufflers installed today. All I can say is wow! These are absolutely perfect for what I was looking for. If anyone is on the fence, GO WITH RPI!!!! They add that little extra umph so that you feel like you're driving a 500hp car without the obnoxiously loud "look at me" sound.
From what I can tell, they have a deeper, louder, and more full tone down low and then it settles out up top with the higher pitched F1 sound.
In addition, I feel like my car has more power. I don't know if it is the placebo effect, but I'm telling you, it chirps freely in p400 mode. I stayed back and watched the entire install. There are tremendous weight savings with this setup over stock mufflers.
Thanks to Eloy and the guys at RPI. This is an awesome setup!
P.S. -- the tips with the etched-in RPI logo look awesome! They fill in the bumper just perfectly with the larger tips!! I always felt something was missing because the stock tips are too small, now it looks just perfect!
