I was thinking maybe it was your headers that really made it roar like fark.

So with your recommendations about hoon laws I thought I'd try the system, without headers, but the selling point was the closed mode, it seems to have a nice subtle, yet, definetly beast tuned sound to it.

My brembo cross drilled rotors finally shipped, but now they are stuck in customs due to lack of "commercial invoice info" I figure they are going to try to screw me on import Tax. Has anyone else encountered this and know what to do To get the ball rolling, so I can sort it out sooner rather than later? did you guys on the west coast get lugged with this as well with your imports?

And if the GT Haus system gets pulled up in customs, I might be up for another 450 in GST to get it cleared, so that'll take the price up to a bit below 5g Aussie dollars for the system delivered, With the POXY as **** exchange rate at the moment.. I'm spewin because shit would be cheap if these cars were released while the AUD VS USD was back up over the USd.. But u get that..

One of my original thoughts when I ordered the rig was ' **** yeah, it'd be cheap as buyin the US Import aftermarket parts cause international trade with the rate was so good.

It's a fair bit of coin to spend on an exhaust, but I figure I'd we are buying the flagship SUV SRT model, why not go the extra mile, and give it the flagship system it deserves.

I'll talk to my guy installing the zorst with the rest of my gear, and try to a baseline run, completely stock, then get a run with the Bwoody, then a run with the fastman throttle body, then a run with those on top of the exhaust.

I'm not gonna dyno tune yet, cause I'm still not 100% on if we can do that fairly safely yet. Can anyone recommended if I should run with getting a dyno tune? Do u think these mods need a tune? I'm used to Turbo Ford inline 6's, this being my first V8 hemi, I'm still not 100% on what we should/ shouldn't do once these V8's get a few minor bolt on's.

Overall with the SRT I'm so glad I didn't dive in and purchase the original 2012 model I test Drove, Because once I saw the 2014 I was SOLD. 8 speed ZF Tranny! Paddle Shifters! Farkin sweet. Big touch screen, voice recognition that actually works.. Even can get the VR to bring up the SRTperformance pages when they are not displayed on the regular screen.

We have confirmation in Australia of our homegrown FORD and HOLDEN locally made factories are closing down. But in the BIG scheme, I can't wait for the Mustangs to land ( but kinda feel sorry for the boys that paid the premium for the LHD US versions to get converted to RHD) but hey once Ford Australia shuts down, the Mustangs around here will be a hell of a lot cheaper. And I think they will sell obscene numbers. Global platforms make sense.

Kinda got on a off topic tangent there, but beer does that.

In Summary. ****in **** yeah.

vvM1LESvv did you check out Best Exhaust in Canberra they are the Australian Agent for GT Haust exhausts. (cheaper from Black OPs)
yeah good luck , even when i took the headers off in open mode was still way to loud. i thought id get away with it.
our law just sucks here, we pay massive taxes to be slaves ....

so after you shell out all that cash, get your car impounded and forced to remove it , you can join the wasted cash club with me lol unless you have a cancel option and get the atak which is a good system and 1/4 of the price and no fines or living in your mirrors while you drive for the popo ....

Re: GT Haus Meinschaft Exhaust for 2014 Wk2 Review

Right, I am sharing the same feeling as our Australian friends regarding the GTHaus exhaust...

I have 2 constraints for my exhaust mod:
1) It needs to be a bolt-on / bolt-off design so I can revert to stock for mandatory inspections (so Borla axle backs that require to butcher the stock setup are off the list);
2) It cannot be too loud, as Swiss cops' ears are delicate... Joking aside, if stopped by the plod it's a "fine+revert to stock+present for inspection" deal, same as Downunder. Not fun. And costly.

A post on this forum from Chad (BlackOpsAutoworks) saying that people he knows that had had a Corsa-equipped WK1 were all disappointed by the WK2 iteration by Corsa (and stories of powdercoating flaking away) convinced me to avoid Corsa this time (I had a WK1 with Corsa before).

GTHaus sounded initially like a great option, with the choice of open/closed modes and high praises by those that installed it. I candidly expected closed mode to be relatively civilized and open to be brutal but this video finished to convince me that this exhaust is too loud even in closed mode (this is closed mode... and the truck looks great in matte black!):

So with 2 modes being "brutal" and "f.....g brutal!!", the steep price tag ends up being the last nail in the coffin.

Soooo...
This leaves a choice of Stainless Works, American Racing Headers and Kooks (cat-backs only, I am not changing to long tube headers because of no. 1) above...).

Any take on these three as a stand-alone cat-back?

Closed mode is very "civilized." It is just a deeper more aggressive sound than the stock. It is louder than stock if you punch the gas but if you are driving normal the only difference is sound. There shouldn't be any issues in the city with driving with the valves closed. Who ever told you different then throw their opinion out the window. I've had this kit the longest and the most people have experienced mine so I know what I am talking about. If people think the closed mode is too much then you should sell your SRT and get a limited.

Re: GT Haus Meinschaft Exhaust for 2014 Wk2 Review

if you worried about the sound then vids don't do any exhausts justice. Ive never heard a vid that does the Borla atak justice. Ive had people tell me that now way a Jeep sounds like that and they thought I pulled into their place in some sort of big block muscle car.
