Same here-interested but I fear that it may be too loud when paired with Cat bypass pipes...hoping someone tries out that combination soon and posts some clips and their impressions.

Thanks, Dan. I'm in and will wait details/send dough upon receipt.

Again, very appreciative of John for shouldering the load on this one.

I've read the responses here and I'm glad to see the interest in this product. We had quite a few inquiries about this exhaust and as Wujohn mentioned, for Rennlist members we will be offering a Group Buy discount. I am limiting the discount to 10x units (less units are OK) and the code will expire on June 14th, 2019. I will send the code via email or PM to those interested and from Wujohn's list. The discount will be $300 off the price of this exhaust during this period.

I want to be transparent about what this exhaust is and isn't, and try to set some expectations for customers. We did put a lot of effort into making it fit just like stock, so it's rather easy to install (maybe 2-hours for the first timer) with no cutting or welding required, and it does include instructions, gaskets, and all hardware needed. This is a stainless steel muffler replacement made in the USA and includes high-quality valves and hardware. It does not cause check engine lights and does not require reprogramming the ECU. The system is only compatible with the PSE exhaust. It does work with the Sport Exhaust button, but the difference between quiet and loud modes is not as pronounced as stock. The quieter mode does make a bit of a difference and it is quieter still, but compared to stock, the quiet mode is still noticeably louder. You will hear more turbo noise and under most conditions you won't notice drone. However, at some RPMs (especially very low RPMs), you may notice more drone than stock if you are trying to accelerate. Downshifting or using a different gear will usually eliminate that.

With exhausts, it's always difficult to describe how the sound changes, how much etc. In my opinion, this exhaust takes the stock car from a "4 out of 10" with the valves closed to a "6 out of 10", and a "6 out of 10" up to maybe an "8 out of 10" with the valves open. It's certainly not the loudest exhaust I've heard. It's most noticeable on a cold start, free revving, and under heavy load / boost. If you're interested and want to "lock in" a discount but want to hear one in person first or wait for more videos, email me and I'll see what I can do to help arrange that.

Here's the people I have on the list to start (I removed a couple who have since placed an order or changed their mind in the thread):
1) Sechsgang
2) Fraz993
3) Randy M
4) Wujohn
5) mglane83

S S - tentative

If you want to confirm that you're interested in the discount, I can send you a coupon code for our web site to place this order or you can call or email an order to us. If you would like to be added to the list or I missed you here, please let me know and I'll add you.

*** Because this is a new product and handmade one at a time, I would expect the first 5x units to be ready in about 4-5 weeks and around 6-7 weeks from purchase date for the next orders. If you are adding ceramic coating this may add 1-2 weeks for the build time. We can update you along the way.

Hey Dan, I am local, could I swing by and listen to the exhaust first?

I can let you know the next time a car is here for one of these exhausts to be installed, but we do not have one here every day.

This could be the case. Items that increase noise: new muffler section, straight pipes instead of muffler (so this Sharkwerks exhaust which should be louder than a straight through muffler), high flow cats, cat bypass (should be louder than high flow cats), headers. Just from general observation, people seem to like the exhaust noise level of the combination of: headers, high flow cats, and straight through muffler.

So if you go with a straight pipe exhaust setup, then maybe that paired with just cat bypass will be okay. Add in headers, and maybe too loud. If you have headers, than that with stock cats and straight pipe exhaust may be the sweet spot.

If I were to apply a scale.
Stock headers = 0. Headers = 1.
Stock cat = 0, HFC = 1, cat bypass = 2.
Stock muffler = 0, straight through muffler = 1, straight pipes = 2.
It seems a sweet spot is = 3-4. So cat bypass with straight pipes exhaust is a 4 on my rough scale. So maybe a smidge on the loud side but for some it may be perfect.

The cats are arguably the most restrictive component on the exhaust system.

Im waiting to hear this setup on some sport cats before I buy. Very interested though.

I have SOUL sport cats and I ordered the SharkWerks exhaust last week. Iíll make a video when I receive it, but itíll probably be potato quality as Iíll be recording with my iPhone. Maybe someone can point me towards a cheap but decent audio recorder on amazon?
