Default ARK GRIP EXHAUST with techno tips (dyno numbers)

Just purchased and received the ARK GRIP cat back exhaust with Techno Tips for my 2012 WRX.

The exhaust came packaged up really well. No scratches. Damn near perfect welds =). Going to have my car dyno'ed by a local shop before and after install so stay tuned photos, video, and dyno charts for gains on this awesome looking exhaust!!

Dyno Day is scheduled for September 25th. All information will follow.

Had an ark exhaust on my previous car (genesis coupe) and had all positive feed back on sound and gains. No drone at all but still a very aggressive tone! and thats what im looking for!

a little late totally forgot about this post but I got 13hp and like 25tq with just a cat back. The shop was really surprised. We did a pull before and after install in 4th. Sounds mean as hell too

edit

it was actually 12 whp gain and 10wtq

I found the dyno. trying to upload it now

Was your tune stock before you did your dyno tune?

A cat-back does not typically gain power. There are outside factors which could have contributed (more aggressive tune that before, moving from an OTS map to a dyno tune, or going from stock to a dyno tune).

Regardless, glad you are happy.

the car was dynoed completely stock. No modifications right from the dealer. Second dyno was with the cat back installed. no other mods. car was not tuned. the exhaust was just bolted up and thrown on the dyno

they did a 3rd and 4th gear pull.
