Anyone used this exhaust set up ?

Postby Hollywood » Mon May 19, 2014 9:35 pm

Has anyone ran the GWR MAX POWER header + RACING BEAT "RACE" midpipe + GWR RACE single exhaust ?

Sound isnt a issue for me. The louder, the better. Car is a 13 CWP CLUB. I want to make the most power & save the most weight. I figured this combo I put together is the most weight savings ?

Anything I should be aware of if I go this route ? Negative ? Positives ? Thanks ! :D

That would be race car loud, easily over 105+ db when on the gas. Thus, I don't expect many responses as the average customers are still driving these cars on the street. I did have a guy order that combo yesterday for dedicated trailered track car (driver will be wearing helmet and ear plugs anyway). That customer is in Florida and explained that none of the tracks he visits have sound limits, here in California some of our tracks have sound limits and this combo won't make it under those limits.

So I have the PPE LTH, PPE catted midpipe, and a CoastFab (Burns) 6.25" 17" long muffler where the resonator used to live (downturn pipe at the rear diff), and I blow 92-95 at events, but the internal sound is really bad. Yes, it's light, but dayem...

Sorry to hijack thread. Brian, by any chance will PPE LTH + midpipe and RACE single pass under 102 db?

Reason being I'll be attending the MRLS this September and that was the requirement. Thanks!

Yea you guys will think Iam crazy because its going on my DD & its a PRHT :lol:

Any negative side effects I should be expecting when running a "race" midpipe ? Only part of the exhaust that Iam actually nervous about.

If no converter in the system you get codes, though the tuners can help turn those off.

Just to make sure I am on record as very clear about this up front, I think this is a VERY BAD idea for daily driver PRHT....I doubt anybody can stand the resulting sound level of this combo for long without ear plugs....particularly in the echo chamber that is the PRHT.

Never mind being able to tolerate the sound level -- I wonder what type of hearing damage this type of sound can cause, especially if used on a DD without some sort of protection. It can't be good.

Hmm you guys actually got me rethinking this. My previous car was a S2000 and I had a test pipe with a single race exhaust on it as well. It was louder than anything Ive owned before but I didnt have a hardtop. I figured it'll be somewhat the same but I didnt take into account the echoing from the exhaust in the cabin to be that bad :cry:

It will be really really loud and will damage your hearing over time. If you still want relatively light and free flowing, but with a little more sound damping, the Street Single would quiet it down a bit more than the Race Single, and the Enthuza single would quiet it down a bit more than that. For a difference of less than 10 lbs, it's worth not having to wear earplugs all the time you drive the car and risk ticking off your neighbors and getting tickets all the time. :wink:

I won't drive my car over 10 minutes without hearing protection. When I rarely DO drive it to work (25 miles, 30-50 minutes depending on traffic), I have my ear buds in listening to news/traffic or tunes. Top up and windows up, it's murder. Top up and windows down, even worse with the wind noise (and I have no A/C, so...). Top and windows down, at highway speeds, for more than 5-10 minutes? Fuggidaboudit.

Thanks for the input fellas. I am reconsidering and maybe running the same exact set up without the RACE muffler, instead, the SUPER Q will replace it. The sound will DEFINITELY be toned down I assume ? Or is the RACE mipipe gonna be a issue ?

@captaincrunch: My PPE LTH & midpipe + Goodwin Race Single measured 93db to 95db at Nationals. You should be way under 102db for MRLS in September. Wish I could go see the unveil of the new ND, too! Take pics!!!
