    I was wondering what your price point is going to be? Like along the 1000-1500 range or the 1500-2000 range. Just curious got to work it into my budget because I need this exhaust in my life. Thanks.

    *update* we have isolated the drone frequencies and implemented the lengths needed to cancel them. They sound great while on a stock downpipe. We have since installed a readily available aftermarket catless down-pipe so we can test sound for a "worst" case scenario where the car can be the loudest. We are testing that out now.

    It will not be active. They are using branch resonators to fine tune the sound

    Fingers crossed on this. I almost pulled the trigger on the aFe exhaust, but the drone was terrible. Deep rumble, no rasp, and no drone (and three tips) would be the holy grail. Option carbon tips would just be icing on the cake

    Correct, no electronics intended for this system.

    Update, the decision has been made to go with full V-band flanges on our system. We will not use slip joints and we will not use 2-bolt flanges. past experiences, a few rounds of testing, and having seen others on the market that were brought to us have shown us that too many of them leak and just don't seal well. We don't want to have a leaking exhaust so we are going for the best solution. This will cost a bit more than a cheaper method of attaching but its what we know will work the best.

    Where will the V-bands stop at? Is there still going to be a 3-bolt flange to the downpipe or are you going to be offering a downpipe back exhaust package?

    It will still be the 3-bolt flange at the down-pipe to work with various down-pipes on the market. Everything from the DP back will be V-bands that we are making.

    May be a dumb question but doesn't that then eliminate anyone who already has, and would rather not part with their front pipe? I have an RV6 and would want to keep it, but it sounds like I wouldn't be able to use this exhaust with it since it's V-band at that side, where the RV6 is the typical flange mount?
