thanks for the extra information, but it only gives me more questions.

like how about the backpressure of a x-pipe?
I am all about sound and performance, what are the best combo's?

My eisenmann race exhaust gives an amazing sound but its not for daily use.
But i am not using it as a daily driver just for a blast in the weekend so want to make as much fun as possible.
its hard too choose between all these different brands but I have allways been a fan of eisenmann.


But I will use the search button a bit more

Now we're talking.

I also have the Eisenmann Race plus RPI Gt Headers. You can hear the combination in this thread:RPI GT Headers & Eisenmann Race Exhaust (Many Mini Clips Inside!)

Rick, you need to be extremely careful with exhaust combination from different tuners as some will cost you a MAJOR loss in power. I'm in my final stages of installing the RPI GT Sect.1. I have stock Sect. 2. I'll post some clips soon.

Well..... I have the supersprint X pipe with no reasonators, and it seems that it causes some power loss.
All rest is standard.
I have ordered today the reasonated X pipe with the race mufflers.
These should work better...hopefully

Hold on, don't get me wrong.
This set up was only meant to make the sound a bit more interesting ( which it did) but also resulted in the loss of power.
Hopefully now I will restore the power and keep the nice sound too.
I am not expecting any additional gains.
If you want added hp from an exhaust, these will only come from sport cats or headers!!

Sure I will do, because I would hate for someone else to go through the same problem as me.
It would take around 10 days to ship the system from Italy so I should have some news in 2 weeks time.
Don't rush and make a mistake.
I will be in touch.
