Installed my Eisenmann Race Exhaust VIDEO & PICS ADDED!!!

EDIT: Added links to 3 vids I uploaded to Youtube. They're raw footage, but they'll have to do! See below for links! Also added pics.

I ordered my exhaust in april/may and because of production delays i didn't get the exhaust til july. I then had to wait an additional month for the connector pipe. Extremely difficult to wait 4-5 months from start to finish... but it was worth it

The exhaust sounds amazing. Definitely makes the car stand out more. Definitely spend more time with the windows down and the stereo off.

It's quite a bit louder for sure. I enjoy launching the car relatively slowly and letting the RPMs slowly climb as i drive through city streets, and unless i know i'm going to need 2nd gear, i'll just leave it in 1st and hold the rpms up at about 4-5k. It sounds very smooth as it climbs through the rpms. Definitely more aggressive.

When slowing down using engine braking, it'll gurgle and sputter a bit. I like this... some of you won't.

I've never had the opportunity to hear it driving away from me or doing a driveby as i'm the only one who drives it... but i did hear a valet drive it away once, but he took it easy - hardly representative of its true potential. In any case, i was glad he took it easy

I guess a soundclip would speak a thousand words in this case... I'll give recording it a shot, but without semi-professional recording equipment, i doubt the results will do the exhaust justice. I just listened to the clip that IND put up a little bit ago, and it sounded about right.

FYI, my other mods are: Dinan Stage III with upgraded oil and intercooler as well as Dinan Stage II suspension. Stereo-wise, i've added 2 PDX amps (600.1 for the subs and i think 100.4 for the front and rear speakers) as well as upgraded under-seat subs (earthquakes).

Bottom line: I'm really glad to have this exhaust and really love to listen to it sing. It may be a little loud for some (i'm 36 and its just on the borderline for my personal tastes...but i was worried that the Sport model wouldn't have given noticeable enough a change), but it doesn't have to scream if you don't make it scream. With windows up, its not at all obtrusive. In another post, someone mentioned drone with this exhaust between 2000-3000 RPM - I haven't noticed that, but as a majority of my driving is city driving so far, i'm rarely at 2-3k RPM for very long. I'll listen for it next time I'm out on the highway.

If anyone's in downtown Vancouver and wants to have a listen, i'd be happy to oblige.
