BERK Technology exhaust

hey guys,

Just picked up the Berk exhaust system today. Installed the midpipes and exhaust and may go in for some downpipe testing as well in the future. Full bolt on so no cutting and no modifications for it to fit. WOT sounds beefy and 3rd gear is a beast. On the flip side, get up to speed, ease off the throttle and it is quiet - just like the stock system. Berk has race and street systems available - in different finishes - this is the downpipe back street system. The Berk 135i has claimed many podiums and track records in time attack. They are currently working on an FRS.

Here are some pics of the install:

on the lift



stock system - pretty beefy





Midpipes in


Exhaust muffler




Didn't have a chance for before and after dyno testing. Car definitely feels more responsive though and doesn't give me that heavy restricted feel on WOT anymore.

I have a crappy iphone video which doesn't do it justice but I am going to Buttonwillow on Friday and just got a lavalier mic for the gopro and will post up some vids on the weekend.

I would definitely recommend this exhaust for anyone looking for one. I know there was a group buy not too long ago and in another thread...lets see some pics!

My Berk street will be here Thursday! But I will be out of town. wont get to install until March I am guessing.

How does she sound from your personal experience? Too low, too loud? Drone? Sweet spot in RPMS? Satisfied? I know once it breaks in the tone will change a bit.
