    Gintani Sport rear section - Install + Review

    Hello all,

    Ever since hearing the older 2008 video of Brians' E90 M3 with full Gintani Race exhaust on YouTube I knew when I sold my E46 and got an E9x that was THE exhaust to have. The sound is tremendous and blows away anything else on the market, IMO. The look is also the best can/tip design. It was just perfect. Although where I come from, Boston, the Race might have been a little much. In comes the Sport version all the looks of the Race with 70% of the volume with no downsides in performance.
    So after getting settled with my new E92 my first modification was to get the Sport rear section.

    My review:

    It transforms the rear of your car. The tips are big/aggressive and mean looking. I went for the polished look as the car is white and I think it blended best. It looks good with and without the diffuser modifications. The single walled tips are amazing, but the new double walled tips will have something for everyone's taste

    The sound is nearly perfect. After breaking it in 50-100 miles the sound mellowed out and actually got quieter. The tone is loud enough to know it's there but not to be obnoxious nor really draw attention to yourself. Hence the name "sport". It is very do-able for a daily driver. If you are looking for something with stock like characteristics and a super quiet exhaust like a stock Dinan muffler, this is a bit louder and in the middle as far as volume. Which for me is perfect. I get compliments on the sound nearly everywhere I go. It sounds like an OEM+ exotic factory exhaust, loud enough to know it's a sport car without the race tone.

    Installation: Very easy less then 30 minutes. All clamps and hardware are high quality and a Gintani representative is always there to help with installation questions.

    Performance gains: Independent dynos have seen 12-15whp from just the axle back alone, we will test this shortly on the dyno before tuning the DME. There feels to be a noticeable difference in the higher rpms with these cans on the car which does coincide with the published dyno charts.

    NEED the dyno and vids!

    It absolutely does transform the rear of the car. Car looks puny with the stock exhaust and those ugly large mufflers. Car looks like it means business, and more importantly, sounds like it.

    It appears I can't edit. Had trouble on the dyno today with the fans. But got a quick iphone video, and HD video to follow:

    This is JUST the Gintani Sport rear section. Sounds amazing. STOCK X PIPE.

    How did it break? These things have a warranty of some sort I would guess?
