This will most likely be an ongoing review.
It started with Tom posted the video of the GT Haus exhaust. Damn it. Strike one. Then he ordered his, got it set up and posted a video of it on the lift in closed and open mode. Damn it Damn it Damn it. Strike two. Then, for fun, Tom posted a video of the exhaust in motion...
Yup, strike three. I had to have it. I ordered my cat back set up Dec 17/13 from Chad with Black Ops and it arrived yesterday (01/16/14) via Fed Ex to Canada. Delivery was only 289 and duty charges were only 115 area. Given the exhaust is over $3577 for full price, I expected a *MUCH* larger duty hit.
The welds on this exhaust are extreme. The guys at the muffler shop, who have been doing work here in Kelowna since 1941 were blown away by the quality. They deal with after market exhausts all day and these guys are the go-to guys on town. The deal with Ferrari, Lamborghini, even old school AC Bristol's and they said this was in the top 5 they've ever seen for build quality.
They were amazed at how it fit perfect with no adjustments whatsoever needed. Simply beautiful one of the owners, 73 years old told me. It said it made him want to buy an SRT just to have this exhaust.
In closed mode, it's noticeably louder than the Borla S Type I had on my previous 14' SRT. If you're cruising, it's quieter than stock, but when you step into it.. ERMAGAWD RELEASE DA CRAKEN!
It really makes a difference now, if you're in D, S or Paddle shift mode as well as Auto, Sport or Track. In stock form, there is a slight difference but with this exhaust, it's MUCH more pronounced and this is a good thing.
There is also a noticeable bump in power from stock, nothing earth shaking but it feels more there if that makes any sense?
In Open mode - holy shit Sally, sell your clothes, they're not needed anymore. This thing is sex on wheels. It is loud and even as I type the word loud I am pretty sure that's still an understatement. It sounds like a fuel dragster when you floor it in open mode.
Best. Drive. Home. Ever.
So knowing what I know now, I can more than stand behind what Tom said about how the videos make it cool and sound like it's something you need for sure, but once you get it.. wow. It's like you wonder how you ever lived without.
We've had shit weather with fog so when it clears up, I'll do some videos.
Thank you to Tom for being crazy enough to jump first. thanks to Chad @ Black Ops for getting it here fast and even beating the timeline he told me by close to 2 weeks.
