    Hey guys,

    If you have been following along with us for a while you know how we approach R&D, Engineering, testing, packing, and more for the enthusiast and the 10th gen platform. Simply put we don't design something and force it on you guys, instead, we ask what you want and then think outside of the box to bring it to you. Don't believe me, you can check out what we did here for the SI exhaust and see how we REDEFINED the system with the help of the community.

    Well now it's time we start our journey for the FK8 and we want to make sure that you guys can tag along and see what we are up to. With great success and similarities to the FK7 we have a really great starting point and a super solid idea on where we are headed and what we can bring you guys.

    Check out part 1 of our design blog here and be sure to leave us a comment and let us know what you think. As well be sure to drop any questions you have in the blog or the thread below and will get to them as quick as we can.

    Will be updating this thread as we progress and will be sure to keep you all in the loop. I personally am very excited as we can bring features to this system that no one else has and believe it will be something great.

    @[email protected] Your ears must have been burning... I was just about to PM you regarding an exhaust for the FK8. I am looking at getting an exhaust, so I wanted to know if you guys are planning to design/produce one for the FK8 before I pull the trigger on something else. I'll hold off as I was pleased with your design for the SI.

    My only request - don't lose the three tip outlet look!

    Ok, maybe that's not my only request. Deep, growly, and without rasp for me please!

    I have been waiting for your exhaust since your Si exhaust was extremely nice. Pretty stoked about this one. I have been holding out as well. Glad I waited.

    I can't agree with you more regarding the 3 tip, as it's unique to the FK8. One obsticle that 27WON will have to tackle is how to make the 3 tip design unique to 27WON.

    One other thought...
    When people buy an exhaust system, they consider many factors: sound, design, quality, price, tolerances, weight, material, size, performance output, availability, etc. But from my experience, one major consideration when buying an exhaust is drone. Everything that I mention above can be on point, but if an exhaust system is known to have drone, people seem to stay far away from that product and end up selecting another exhaust system. It's all very subjective, but drone seems to be universally hated. Just my 2 cents.

    YES!!! Please consider those who already have a downpipe and frontpipe. Specifically catless! I’ve been waiting on this announcement. I would love an exhaust that I don’t need to post modify with extra resonators to sound great.
    Edit:
    @[email protected]
    I would sacrifice three tips for one tip if the sound is on point while running catless. Just saying

    We actually have some thoughts on the front-pipe as well. A way to ensure a real 3" for the FK8. Our intention would be just that, an exhaust you don't have to post modify to create a tone you want. That's just stupid in our opinion. You just spent thousands of dollars on something that promised you a good note to then only spend hundreds more to change it. Not how we think it should be done. If you have read any of our FK7 and FC1 threads you will see how we actaully tuned the exhaust for the engine and chassis. Expect us to do the same with this car.

    I’ll definitely read through them
    So are you guys thinking then whole exhaust will include a front pipe? No compatibility with current 3” front pipes? Not a deal breaker, tone is number 1 priority. I would sell mine if needed.

    I was actually waiting to see what you guys would come out with for the FK8 before i made my final exhaust decision. Look forward to seeing/hearing the prototype.

    Can you please design your bends to allow the frame rail brace to be installed? This brace is missing on Type R's, but found on other model variants. The factory Type R exhaust's first resonator means the frame rail brace won't fit - but if you don't have a resonator there in your system, then the brace should fit with the right bends - the bolts are already there (see green). The part is 74178-TEA-T00

    That has yet to be determined but could be a possibility. Will toss around some options and see what we can come up with.
    That is a good note, my friend. I'll make sure my ENG are aware of it and will take that into consideration.
