Crappy cell video. Will do another with my GoPro this weekend. Wife was throttling, but you get the piont.




Overall, the fitment and design are spot on. This exhaust weighs nothing (15 lbs), and looks really good IMO. HOWEVER... it is VERY loud during WOT. So don't expect a mellow exhaust if you get one. It doesn't have any drone that I have experienced either. Well enjoy, and let me know what you think.

My exhaust mods are in the Youtube description. I have a catless downpipe, into the Ti exhaust, nothing else exhaust wise. Low RPM's as in idle? VERY quiet. Driving around 1200-1500 rpms, semi-quiet but not loud. I will post up a GoPro video this weekend with Idle, WOT, normal driving, etc.

can you get me some more pics of the rear view, like from the side and stuff?

i have the yellows on the sides, been debating the rear view for a while now.
Just like the sides the rear goes on top of the normal mirror.. the middle juts forward a bit but when ur looking at it you don't notice it.. u have to go underneath it lol I'll take a pic later when I'm at lunch.
The sides I used some added 3m tape but the interior.. one u don't need it.

Love the mirrors I have more pics of sides worth a comparison on my build thread ... The rear is nice but...
It is wide so everything seems smaller and u see more of the interior.. so lol kinda functional lol. Love them though.

I installed my side mirrors differently, I pulled the stock glass out of the surround and installed em that way. Made for a much cleaner installation. I am just nervous about the rearview because I don't want it to look all funky like it's protruding from the stock mirror. I want an OEM appearance basically.

ARK is beautiful . Best exhaust on the market by far .
The GRiP is flawed with flow issues but its non restrictive . This issue is corrected with the DTS...

Besides, who has their hand on their exhaust at WOT anyway ?

U can see the edge goes into the housing bit the middle bulges out.



But normal view looks like this... U don't notice it.


And edge view of the sides on stock mirror.. does not stock out as much as even I thought it would.. when aimed for your liking it looks like it could b oem

_tata your car looks good man. The RPF1's are best in that alloy color. You have the neochrome lugs, why add more color?

I'm really surprised that another fog light kit hasn't surfaced for these. I think it would be cool if there was some kind of vertical fog type of system, versus the round foglight look.

I.e. VW GLI fogs.

This is also incorrect. The exhaust I had from ark was a DTS. Aside from their terrible fabrication and weight, the exhaust flow is unbalanced.

Consider a perfect scenario of an exhaust system flowing at 100%. When your running a quad tip, the exhaust should split at the Y 50/50. In this case the system is running close around 20L/80R from the rear of the car. This causes the system to produce excess back pressure while it is being forced mostly out of one side; note single exit exhausts running a single large mouth tip. Also consider that this back pressure increases the overall exhaust temperature. Temperature from this and the UEL headers = detriment to cylinder 2 and 4 under steady load. Then again, your probably not racing with this 500LBS exhaust system.

I wouldn't consider this in the top 5 for quality at all!

Weight was the biggest factor in choosing an exhaust for me.

It's a nice step up. My only real complaint about it is the mounting solution they provide is a little restricted. I found that they are using the same mounting style as Garmin so I bought the vent clip mount. The unit it's self is really nice and the display is much nice!
