You Nasioc folks are going to benefit for "not" knowing about the build up of this exhaust. Its been in pre-production testing since last January, racking up thousands of miles on two different test cars. Since Daddy's SCP/MadDad have been MIA over here for a while you didn't have to suffer the long wait that some others did. We've have a few pre-orders for this exhaust that are 8+ months old and the customers still want the exhaust...talk about waiting for what you like. So our MIA status in this case will be a boon to some of you because right now there is no wait for this new system. Its at our door right now. We need to do inspection and receiving so I don't suspect we'll be shipping anything until tomorrow or maybe Wedenesday but outside of that there are no lines(after we ship some of the early pre-orders) and no waiting. The details surround this exhaust are below with a pictoral build up over the last year. This is an absolutely GEORGOUS exhaust to look at . The twin canister design and the staggered quad tips are a site to behold. In typical MadDad style extensive testing and refinement was done to ensure this exhaust sound right both inside the cabin and out. You'll get the refined highway manner MadDad Whisper series are known but in an exhaust that is designed to be bit more flashy for those that want the "show" as much as the "go". The only downfall here is that this pre-order/gb pricing is not going to last long. I'm going to let it ride for 30 days since you folks didn't benefit from knowing about it earlier. On the flip side...there is no waiting. Let me know if you folks have any questions. Here a video as well since I know someone will ask "clip please"
There has been a year long build up for this exhaust. You can read about the built up in this long running Announcment thread: Street Series Turboback Announcement
Its been a full year of revisions and real world street testing with two pre-proudciton units on cars as early as last January...11 months ago. So to say I'm excited about the release of our new Street Series turboback for the GR STi is a major understatement. We're making changes to our Whisper series GR exhaust later this month. Changes that will make it hint more expense but also changes that will reset the bar on a quiet performance 3" catback is so the Street Series is showing up at a perfect time. Why?
The new Essentials Street Series is not a loud exhaust. It similiar to what the origonal first gen Whisper series was, so it slots in nicely and will fill in a gap for us since the Whisper series is going to new quiet levels that will probably be too quiet for some in its next release. So consider the Street series the "everyday" enthusiasts exhaust..or like the origonal first gen Whisper. It's for those that don't want something over the top loud, those that want something with a great highway manner(no droning) and those that want a great sporting sound character and look but also remain very tasteful(just look at the tips on this).
I feel in short order this will be the most popular exhaust we've ever offered and for a limited time you can get an extra $200 off the catback($849
vs $1049), an extra $70 off the new 200cp
i(a big differentiator) metal substrate race downpipe($479
vs. $549), and an additional $75 off if you order both..that's an extra $345 savings over what will be the everyday prices for this complete turoback. Best part is you won't have to wait a year to receive it. This product is due at our door end of this week. Below are direct links to order the parts and a pictoral build up of this exhaust from the earliest pre-production pics to the latest revisions that went into the production units. There is also a link to the Announcement forum above if you want to read the details behind the photos and get additional info on the product.
