i know spartan2-3. i'll make sure i'll rev the engine when i get home @ 2am right before i close my garage. he he he.

Next on the wish list are, replica na2 type-r CF spoiler, and rotors. Hopefully i get enough funds to have them in time for the summer drives.

Ariel,

I am glad you are excited to get your exhaust...you should be! It is a great exhaust, a little loud yes, but for some of us that is exactly the tone we are looking for...
Thanks again for the props, I am glad to help out anyone, anytime!

Take Care

haha. I love how your exhaust blew crap into the camera lense. You know I must admit I didn't think the Taitec parallel would sound that good. I like it a lot. Its not even that loud IMHO. I've heard some nasty high pitched exhausts, but that one has a good tone with a clean high pitch. awesome exhaust.

I like it. How much was it? Was it easy to install? How long did it take you to install it?

How much more horsepower do you gain from installing just the exhaust? I have heard the only significant difference is when you change the header, exhaust, etc to get the gain.

SOS gave me a good deal/ call them Seth helped me, but either chris or seth. they are cool.
yeah it was easy to install, took only about 2 1/2 hr's. it could have been done sooner if we did not have BEER breaks. he he he. and adoring the exhaust. coz when the JGTC was still off the car we just kept looking @ it and looking @ the detail work and welds.
HP gains were noticeable coz i guess my 04 already have OEM headers, and per Chris (SOS) Dyno test result was around 15hp gain with the JGTC.

my first test drive was great. right away i noticed increase in torque and throttle response through-out the RPM range from mid-all the way to 8k.
IMHO i like the JGTC. it's really not that loud. it's only @ the loudest from 2k-4krpm and if u get to the higer rpm's the exhust kinda quiet's down and then i get to hear the engine intake as the rpm goes up to redline.
LOVE IT!

i was wondering, did you try driving without any exhaust on? just headers?

to drive it w/o an exhaust? nope did not want to deal with taking the car down off the ramp and everything.
But i was tempted to try even just to start the engine but in the end... nahhh.... :smile:

Are you hearing any booming/resonating in the cabin like the GT Lightweight does?

Ariel, your car sounds like an "F1" car during that high speed pass you made today..... :cool:
really??? COOL :biggrin: i think i was about to redline on 4th when i was just next to your rear bumper and was shifting to 5th as i pass your window.
hey next time u should do a WOT fly by so i can also hear how the JGTC sounds like. so i know how the other car's feel when i pass by them.
