I guess I was confused over your labeling of the systems. The Super GT system is the same as the GTC controllable system, just without the muffler valve control?
--> correct. Super GT unit is "without" the valve contorl and it is loud version at all times. while the GTC unit comes equipped with Electronic valves, which you can control the sound and pressure of your unit at anytime with remote control.
On a stage 2 motor with the catless downpipes, wouldn't running with the control flap closed for long periods of time cause problems with the stage 2 tune? That's why I was wondering how the Super GT stage 2 system sounds during regular driving with no control valve.
--> Got your point. When our valves are closed, the back box flow rate is almost same as the OE/Stock muffler unit (slightly better than the stock unit flow rate). Note: Closed mode isn't meaning "restrictive" mode.
yes, it will run fine with TYR TECH stage 2 tune, with the valves closed and we are currently testing it as we speak
I'm thinking at low rpm with a turbo motor the exhaust sound might not be all that loud through your mufflers. I don't recall the rpm needed for 7th gear at 80mph, I'd appreciate your telling me, but with the torque of this motor at low rpm it should be very driveable at low rpm in all the gears.
--> Considering the TQ Power, it is not a problem at all.
Sound wise, when you go with cat-back system, it is also definately manageable for daily drive and "civil" drive especially when you have the valves closed.
But when you have the optional Down pipes installed (Full Turbo back system composition), It is still a lot louder than the stock unit in any RPM and in any gears you are in, even when the valves are closed.
It is pretty LOUD in very awesome way (you can see this on our road testing video)
Oh, on a side note, is there a functional purpose for the vertical dividers you have in the exhaust tips? Interesting look and I wondered if they were just to keep large furry creatures from crawling into the mufflers?[/quote]
--> several reasons for it, but mainly it does streamline turbulence in exhaust flow, and it is also our signature tip design (Meisterschaft).
