Default Stromung Opinion/ Review

I will preface this by saying that I am working on what I feel is an atypical build. I was interested in having a quiet exhaust that wouldn't hurt performance. I was leaning heavily towards the Maddad Whisper, but it seems he is too busy or out of business. That lead me towards considering a Stromung system. Stromung makes the Maddad exhausts apparently. I emailed Stromung and described what I was trying to accomplish. I wanted to know if they felt their exhaust was a good fit for my build. I wasn't asking for anything custom. I was only asking if they thought their off the shelf exhaust would fit my needs. I am condensing the conversation; however, to sum it up, I was told that they couldn't help me, and I should go to an exhaust shop. They didn't offer any reason for why they felt their exhaust was a bad choice for my build or any advice on how to ensure I would end up with a decent exhaust from an average muffler shop. They only reiterated that they couldn't help me. The last email was literally one sentence. I was disappointed, because I really hoped to be persuaded that extra bit to purchase their exhaust. I was so put off by the experience that I couldn't stomach buying their product. I went with another company's exhaust marketed as being quiet. Maybe I am being sensitive, but I have emailed many other companies during the process of this build. If they couldn't help me directly, they would either give the best advice possible or direct me to someone who could help me out. Stromung was incredibly short with me and didn't seem passionate about their products.

Default Stromung Opinion/ Review

Iím surprised to hear that, Scott is normally very helpful. Every time I reached out it was alway a positive outcome. I hope you can find what you are looking for, perhaps reach out to Stromung again in a few weeks, we all have our bad days. I have a Stromung catback on one of my cars and an intermediate pipe on another and Iím planing on buying an axleback to complete a catback setup.
