Default Best exhaust and headers set up for supercharger
I went to visit my installer today ( to chat about pushing up past 600 HP) he does lots of exhaust systems (SW, borla, corsa, custom in house builds) and he told me the kooks install was his favorite to date.

I took some video of the underside (best i could do without a lift). I will get more sound clips when the rest of the world wakes up.

Keep in mind whichever brand of exhaust you choose, best choice is to stay with one manufacturer from heads to tip for the maximum performance. Stainless Works considers items like primary length, muffler size and internal muffler composition per application, yes our system is tuned per vehicle. Not all mufflers in our product line are the same, each vehicle in our lineup gets its own muffler design. Not to mention location of the x-pipe is critical to performance, and the x-pipe overall length plays a role in exhaust scavenging. Collector length determines torque curve, just sayin...

Fastcote: How loud is your system? Is it wake the neighbors loud -- or is it more of an aggressive sound?

It has a nice growl but its certainly not like sticking an icepick in your ears! I find it deeper and throatier than a lot of the samples I have seen posted. The side exit ones seem somehow "tinny" and bright. Mine is more of a trombone to their trumpet.

I have a few videos posted but they really don't do justice.

^^ click them anyway. It makes me feel good ;)

Here is Kooks propaganda video BUT keep in mind the video shows the 1 3/4 system for naturally aspirated. Mine is the 1 7/8, you would want that for supercharged systems.


I hope to line one of my kids up along the road side for some speed runs as soon as i can. Launch videos will have to wait for heavy duty springs.
